KISWAHILI: WANATIBU WAGONJWA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chaangalia wauguzi na wale wanaoguzwa. Wauguzi hufanya jitihada za kuwajali wagonjwa wao kwa kuwapima na kuwapatia dawa za kuweza kuyatibu magonjwa waliyoyagundua. Wakiwaponyesha wagonjwa wao, wauguzi hao hufurahi mioyoni mwao. Hali kadhalika na wale wagonjwa hufurahi wanapopona magonjwa yao.

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa wapishi wa chakula ambao huwapikia watu walio na njaa. Kuwapikia chakula watu hao wenye njaa na kuwatibu kwa kuwatengenezea chakula, hufanana na kuwapa dawa ya kuwaponya magonjwa yao.

Njaa hulinganishwa na ugonjwa. Kumbe basi, kama watu wakijisikia njaa huwa kama wagonjwa. Lakini wakila na kutosheka watu hao hufananishwa na wagonjwa waliopona ujonjwa wao wa kujisikia njaa.

Kumbe basi, kuwatibu ugonjwa huo ni sawa na kula chakula kiwezacho kuuponyesha ugonjwa wa njaa hiyo kwa kutosheka. Wale wanaotibu wagonjwa ni watu wanaokula chakula cha kuwawezesha kutosheka, yaani, kuwaponyesha ugonjwa wao wa kujisikia njaa.

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na ukarimu wa kuwapatia chakula watu wenye njaa ili waweze kupona ugonjwa wao wa kujisikia njaa, kwa kula mpaka kutosheka. Ukarimu huo, huwasaidia watu katika kuwatibu wale walio na ugonjwa huo wa njaa kwa kuwapatia chakula cha kula mpaka kutosheka.

man-eating

ENGLISH: THEY ARE TREATING PATIENTS

The above proverb is about those who nurse the sick. Nurses do a lot in providing care for their patients. For instance, they check on them and give them medicine to treat the various ailments as diagnosed. When the nurses heal their patients, they, just like their patients, become happy.

Such proverb is likened to those who cook and feed hungry people. Cooking and feeding the hungry is like providing a cure for their diseases. Hunger is equated to an ailment, meaning that when people are hungry they are sick. So, when the hungry eat and become satisfied, they are likened to sick people who have recovered from their illnesses.

In fact, treating sickness is like eating a diet that can heal the disease of hunger. Treating patients is akin to giving them food to make them happy, that is, to heal their hunger.

The proverb teaches people to be generous in giving food to the hungry so that they can recover from their hunger by eating to satisfaction. Such hospitality enables people to treat those who suffer from hunger by feeding them until they get satisfied.

Matthew 15: 34-38.
