Luka 12:31.

Luka 12:20-21

KISWAHILI: UHAI HAUHIFADHIANWI.

Msemo huo, ulitokea kwenye maongezi ya watu waliokuwa wakiongelea juu ya kuulinda uhai wao. Watu hao walikuwa katika safari ya kwenda sehemu fulani. Lakini basi, usiku uliingia wakiwa njiani, walipo likaribia poli lenye wanyama wakali. Mmoja wao akasema, “tulale sehemu fulani kwa sababu usiku umeingia ili tuweze kuulinda uhai wetu.” Mwingine akajibu, “kweli twende tukalale kwenye familia ile pale, kwa sababu hayupo mtu wa kututunzia uhai wetu.”

Watu hao walienda kwenye familia hiyo wakalala mpaka kesho yake, ndipo wakaendelea na safari yao. Huo ndio ukawa msemo kwa watu wanaotaka kukwepa hatari fulani kwa ajili ya kuulinda uhai wao kwamba, “uhai hauhifadhianwi.”  Watu hata wakikuta mto umejaa huambiana, “turudi uhai hauonwi mara mbili.”

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huulinda zaidi uhai wa watu wake kuliko anavyolinda mali zake. Mtu huyo, anaifahamu faida ya uhai wa watu ambao haiwezi hata kulinganishwa na mali. Yeye huwasaidia watu wake katika kuulinda uhai wao, ili waweze kuulinda kuliko wanavyozilinda mali zao.

Mtu aweza kuzihifadhi mali hata kwa mtu fulani, lakini hawezi kuuhidhi uhai wake kwa mtu yoyote. Mali hata kama zikiisha mtu aweza kuzitafuta na kuzipata zingine. Lakini uhai ukiisha ndiyo umeisha hawezi kuupata mwingine. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “uhai hauhifadhianwi.”

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuelewa kuulinda uhai wa watu wao zaidi kuliko wanavyolinda mali zao, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani, kwa sababu uhai hauhifadhianwi. Inafaa watu waelewe kwamba, ‘ni vigumu kuupata uhai mali huonwa.”

Luka 12:31. “Bali utafuteni Ufalme wa Mungu na vitu hivyo vyote atawapatia pia.”

Luka 12:20-21. “Lakini Mungu akamwambia, ‘Mpumbavu wewe! Usiku huu huu uhai wako unatakiwa. Sasa hivyo vitu ulivyojiwekea akiba vitakuwa vya nani?’ “Hivyo ndivyo ilivyo kwa wale wanaojiwekea vitu lakini hawajitajirishi kwa Mungu.””

ENGLISH: ONE’S LIFE CANNOT BE KEPT BY ANOTHER EXCEPT BY ONESELF.

The above saying came from a conversation of people who were talking about protecting their life. They were on their way to a certain place. But then, the night came as they were still on the way. In the course of time they came to a wild animal infested area. Seeing these, one of them said, “The night has come, let’s sleep somewhere to save our lives.” The other replied, “Really, let us go and sleep in that family, because there is no one to take care of us unless we do so ourselves.”

These two people went to that family and slept there until it was dawn the next day, after which they continued with their journey. Henceforth, that became the saying of those who wanted to avoid certain dangers in order to protect their lives. Such people would say “One’s life cannot be kept by another except by oneself.” Even when people found an overflowing river they would say to one another, “Let us go back, “one’s life cannot be kept by another except by oneself.”

This expression is used to refer to a person who is more protective of his people than he protects his property. That person is aware of the value of human life that it cannot be compared to material possessions. He helps his people protect their lives, more than they protect their properties.

One can keep property even for someone else, but he cannot give his life to anyone. Even if one runs out of money, one can still find more money in future. But once life is over, one can’t find another one. That is why people say, “One’s life cannot be kept by another person except by oneself.”

This saying, teaches people about the importance of protecting the lives of their people more than they protect their property, so that they can live in peace, because no one can keep life of another except oneself. Therefore, people should understand that life cannot be recovered or found again once it is lost  but people can lose properties today and still find another in future.

Luke 12:31, Luke 12: 20-21.
