(src)="23"> Satan is primarily responsible for the strife and differences experienced by mankind .
(trg)="25"> Na wetin Satan do make fight and quarrel full everywhere today .
(trg)="26"> Why we talk like that ?

(src)="24"> In Eden , his argument was that each individual can and should decide what is good and what is bad , doing so independent of God .
(trg)="27"> For garden of Eden , Satan talk sey we no need God to tell us wetin good and wetin bad .

(src)="25"> The fruits of such reasoning are plain to see .
(trg)="28"> E talk sey e dey our hand to choose wetin we want do .

(trg)="32"> Na only theirself dem dey see , na im make dem dey carry shoulder up , dey do like sey na dem sabi pass , and dem like quarrel .

(src)="27"> Anyone who allows himself to be swept along by this spirit is , in effect , accepting Satan’s argument that it is the course of wisdom to pursue one’s own interests regardless of how doing so may affect others .
(trg)="33"> Anybody wey dey do like this , dey support wetin Satan talk , sey anything wey person fit do for imself no bad even if other people suffer .

(src)="28"> Such a selfish course leads to strife .

(src)="38"> Our efforts to serve God ​ — through prayers , meeting attendance , field service , and other aspects of our worship — ​ are in vain if we refuse to make peace with others .
(trg)="44"> When we dey pray , dey go our meeting , dey go preaching , and dey do other things for Jehovah , we dey worship am .
(trg)="45"> But if we no want settle quarrel wey we get with people , all the things wey we dey do for Jehovah na zero !

(src)="39"> We cannot be friends of God unless we are willing to forgive the shortcomings of others . ​ — Read Luke 11 : 4 ; Ephesians 4 : 32 .
(trg)="46"> ( Mark 11 : 25 ) We no go ever fit be God friend if we no gree forgive people wey do us bad . — Read Luke 11 : 4 ; Ephesians 4 : 32 .

(src)="41"> Do you forgive fellow believers freely ?
(trg)="48"> You dey forgive brothers and sisters wey do wetin vex you ?

(src)="47"> What should we do if we are offended ?
(trg)="54"> Wetin we go do if person do wetin we no like ?

(src)="48"> Because all humans are imperfect , sooner or later someone is going to say or do something that will offend you .
(trg)="55"> Get am for mind sey people go make you vex .
(trg)="56"> This na because e no get who no dey make mistake .

(src)="49"> This is inevitable .
(trg)="57"> ( Eccl .
(trg)="58"> 7 : 20 ; Matt .

(src)="50"> How are you going to react ?
(trg)="59"> 18 : 7 ) Wetin you go do if person do or talk wetin you no like ?

(src)="51"> Consider what happened when the following situation developed : At a social gathering attended by some Witnesses , two brothers were greeted by a certain sister in a way that one of them considered inappropriate .
(trg)="60"> This story fit help you know wetin you go do : Brothers and sisters for congregation go one get together .
(trg)="61"> For there , one sister come greet two brothers , but one of the brother no like the way the sister greet am .

(src)="52"> When the two brothers were alone , the offended brother began to criticize the sister for what she had said .
(trg)="62"> When the sister don comot for where dem dey , the brother wey no like the way the sister greet am , come dey talk bad about the sister .

(src)="53"> However , the other brother reminded him that she had served Jehovah loyally in difficult circumstances for 40 years ; he was sure that she meant no harm .
(trg)="63"> But the other brother tell am sey the sister don dey serve Jehovah well for 40 years , even though e don suffer many many things .
(trg)="64"> E tell the brother sey e no sure sey the sister really want make am vex .

(src)="54"> After considering this for a moment , the first brother responded , “ You are right . ”
(trg)="65"> When the brother wey dey vex think the matter , e come talk sey : “ Na true you talk o . ”

(src)="55"> As a result , the issue went no further .
(trg)="66"> Wetin e come do ?
(trg)="67"> E forget about the matter .

(src)="56"> What does this experience show ?
(trg)="68"> Wetin we learn from this story ?

(src)="57"> The way you react to situations that have the potential for causing offense lies in your own hands .
(trg)="69"> Na you fit control wetin you go do anytime person talk or do wetin you no like .

(src)="58"> A loving person covers over minor transgressions .
(trg)="70"> The love wey you get go make you no carry wetin the person do you for mind .

(src)="59"> ( Read Proverbs 10 : 12 ; 1 Peter 4 : 8 . )
(trg)="71"> ( Read Proverbs 10 : 12 ; 1 Peter 4 : 8 . )

(src)="60"> Jehovah considers it “ beauty ” on your part “ to overlook an offense . ”
(trg)="72"> This one na better thing for Jehovah eye .
(trg)="73"> ( Prov .
(trg)="74"> 19 : 11 ; Eccl .

(src)="61"> So the first thing to ask yourself when somebody treats you in a way that could seem unkind or disrespectful is : ‘ Can I overlook this ?
(trg)="75"> 7 : 9 ) So , if person do wetin you no like , make you first ask yourself : ‘ I fit forget am ?

(src)="62"> Do I really need to make an issue of it ? ’

(src)="64"> ( b ) What Scriptural thought helped this sister to maintain her peace ?

(src)="65"> It may be challenging to treat criticism lightly .
(trg)="79"> But , the truth be sey e no dey easy sometimes to bear bad thing wey person talk about you .

(src)="66"> Take the case of a pioneer , whom we will call Lucy .
(trg)="80"> Hear the story of one pioneer wey we go call Lucy .

(src)="67"> Negative comments had been made about her ministry and her use of time .
(trg)="81"> Some people dey talk sey dem no like the way e dey preach and the way e dey use time for preaching .

(trg)="84"> After , Lucy come talk sey : “ The brothers use Bible advice me .
(trg)="85"> Their advice help me learn sey make I no dey too think about wetin people dey talk about me but make I dey think about Jehovah . ”

(src)="70"> Lucy was encouraged by reading Matthew 6 : 1 - 4 .
(trg)="86"> Wetin Lucy read for Matthew 6 : 1 - 4 ( Read am . ) , help am .

(src)="71"> ( Read . )
(src)="72"> That passage reminded her that making Jehovah happy should be her goal .
(trg)="87"> E learn from that Bible verse sey make e dey think about wetin e go do wey go make Jehovah happy .

(src)="73"> “ Even if others make negative comments about my activity , ” she says , “ I remain happy , for I know that I am trying my best to receive Jehovah’s smile of approval . ”
(trg)="88"> Lucy come talk sey : “ Even if person talk bad thing about the way I take dey preach , I go still dey happy .

(src)="74"> After reaching this conclusion , Lucy wisely chose to overlook the negative remarks .
(trg)="89"> This na because I know sey I dey do everything wey I fit do to make Jehovah happy . ”
