KISWAHILI: NA KUTENGEWA NYAMA NAWE UKAANZA KUCHAMBUA ZA MIFUPA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia kutengewa nyama kwenye familia ya mtu fulani. Nyama hizo zilikuwa nzuri zote. Lakini yule aliyetengewa ili azile, alianza kuzitafuta zile zilizonzuri, na kuziona zingine kama hazifai. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia mtu huyo, kwamba, ‘na kutengewa nyama nawe ukaanza kuchambua za mifupa.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye ni mwenye majivuno ya kuvidharau vile anavyopewa na wenzake. Mtu huyo baada ya kutengewa chakula huanza kuzitafuta zile zilizonzuri na kuziona zingile kama hazifari. Ndiyo maana wenzake humwambia kwamba, ‘na kutengewa nyama nawe ukaanza kuchambua za mifupa.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia za majivuno ya kuwadharau wengine na kukidharau chakula kile wapewacho maisha mwao.

Matayo 20:20-24.

ENGLISH: TO BE GIVEN MEAT AND BEGINNING TO LOOK FOR BONES.

The source of the above proverb is a story about someone being given meat. The story narrates about someone who was given meat and instead, began looking for bones as a way to disapprove the given food. People of this caliber are being criticized through this saying.

This proverb can be compared to a person who is arrogant and is not ready to appreciate what is being given by others. When given food to eat, he/she begins looking for its weaknesses and finally disapproves it. Such people are challenged by telling them that ‘to be given meat and beginning to look for bones’ in order to make them calm and appreciate what comes before them.

The proverb teaches people to stop being arrogant by despising others who appear to be helpful in their lives. Rather, they have to have a tendency of appreciation whenever they are being given something.

Matthew 20: 20-24.
