KISWAHILI: ZIWA HALITOSHEKI NA TAKATAKA NA SUMU

Chanzo cha methali hiyo changalia ziwa ambalo hupokea kila aina ya takataka ambazo ni pamoja na sumu. Takataka hizo hupelekwa kwenye ziwa wakati mvua inaponyesha. Pamoja na uchafu wote huo kuingia kwenye ziwa hilo, lenyewe halitosheki kwa sababu huwa linazidi kupokea tu. Linafanya hivyo kila wakati huku likionekana kuwa safi, mpaka watu huweza hata kunywa maji yake. Kutokana na hali hiyo, watu walianza kuitumia methali hiyo wakisema ‘Ziwa halitosheki na takakata na sumu.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye hupenda sana anasa za dunia, kama ziwa linvyopokea takataka na sumu za kila aina wakati wa kunyesha mvua, kama wasemavyo Pd Don Syberts MM, Pd. Joseph Healey MM, katika kitabu chao kiitwacho ‘Kueneza Injili kwa Methali,’ uk. 19.

Kwa njia hiyo uchafu wa aina mbalimbali hupelekwe ziwani na kusambazwa mpaka ukawa hauonekani kwa sababu ya ukubwa wa ziwa hilo. Kwa hiyo, ziwa hilo huwa halitosheki na sumu zipelekwazo ndani yake na maji ya mvua yatirikayo ndani yake.

Kutokana na hali hiyo, methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wale wenye tamaa ya kupata kila kitu hapa duniani, kwa sababu hao hawataki kujikana. Watu hao pia hutaka kupata kila kitu hata kama kinaweza kuleta ugonvi kwenye familia zao. Hawatosheki kufanya maovu, kama vile ziwa lisivyotosheka kupokea takataka za sumu zipelekwazo ndani yake na mvua zinaponyesha.

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tamaa za kutenda maovu. Badala yake watu hao wapende kutenda mema yawezayo kuzijenga vizuri familia zao. Maisha hayo yataweza kuwajengea tabia njema iwezayo kuwaletea amani na uelewano katika familia zao maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: THE SEA IS NOT SATISFIED WITH TRASH OR POISON

The basis of that proverb relates to how a large water mass like a lake or sea takes in all manner of trash, including poisonous stuff. This rubbish is transported by the flow of water when it rains. It is distributed until it becomes invisible because of the large size of the lake Now, even with the inflow of all the waste, the lake or sea never gets satiated; it just takes in more and more. Interestingly, the water mass will still appear clean, and people may even take the water therein. It is from this background that people began to use the proverb ‘The Sea is not satisfied with trash or poison.’

The proverb is comparable to a person who adores worldly pleasures, the way the lake embraces refuse and all kinds of poison when it rains. This is as articulated by Fr. Donald Sybertz MM and Fr. Joseph Healey in their book ‘Spreading the Gospel in Proverbs,’ p. 19.

Furthermore, the proverb is compared to people who desire to have everything in the world, because they cannot control their greed. Because of their selfishness, they do not care if their bad behavior breeds family strife. They are not satisfied in evildoing, just as a lake is not satisfied in receiving the toxic waste that is fed into it by the floods.

Such proverb teaches people to turn away from being desirous of evil things. Instead, they should aim to do what is pleasant for their families. Positive habits are sure to bring peace and harmony in people’s lives and their families.
