(trg)="37"> Yehowa nyɛɔ enaa bɔ ni mɔ ko ji diɛŋtsɛ , ejaakɛ jeee bɔ ni mɔ lɛ ji yɛ kponɔgbɛ lɛ ekwɛɔ , shi moŋ etsui .

(src)="30"> ( Read 1 Samuel 16 : 7b . )

(src)="34"> “ The examiner of hearts , ” however , did not see Saul as useless clay .
(trg)="44"> No ji , ebuuu lɛ akɛ sũ ni anyɛŋ akɛshɔ̃ nɔ ko nɔ ko .

(src)="35"> Instead , God saw that he could be molded into a desirable vessel ​ — in fact , “ a chosen vessel ” to bear witness “ to the nations as well as to kings and the sons of Israel . ”
(trg)="45"> Moŋ lɛ , ena lɛ akɛ sũ ni ebaanyɛ ekɛshɔ̃ gbɛ́ ko ni jara wa .

(trg)="46"> Ena lɛ akɛ mɔ ko ni ebaanyɛ etsɔ enɔ eye “ jeŋmaji lɛ kɛ maŋtsɛmɛi kɛ Israelbii lɛ ” fɛɛ odase .

(src)="37"> As they gained accurate knowledge of God’s Word and expressed faith , they allowed Jehovah to mold them .

(src)="48"> To get the facts , Michael accepted a Bible study .
(trg)="62"> Michael kpɛlɛ ni Odasefoi lɛ kɛ lɛ bɔi Biblia lɛ kasemɔ koni ele amɛ jogbaŋŋ .

(src)="49"> Later , he came into the truth and entered the full - time service .
(trg)="63"> Sɛɛ mli lɛ , abaptisi lɛ , ni ebatsɔ be fɛɛ sɔɔlɔ .

(src)="50"> How should our trust in Jehovah as our Potter affect our attitude toward our brothers and sisters ?
(trg)="64"> Kɛ́ wɔkpɛlɛ nɔ akɛ Yehowa nyɛɔ eshɔ̃ɔ adesai lɛ , ebaasa bɔ ni wɔkɛ wɔnyɛmimɛi Kristofoi lɛ yeɔ wɔhãa lɛ he .

(src)="51"> Our accepting Jehovah as our Potter can affect our attitude toward fellow believers too .
(trg)="65"> No hewɔ lɛ , te onaa onyɛmimɛi Kristofoi lɛ ohãa tɛŋŋ ?

(src)="52"> Do you see your brothers and sisters as God does ​ — not as a finished product , but as a work in progress ?
