Zaburi 116:11.

MACHOZI YA KUJIPAKA.

Methali hiyo ilianzia kwa mtu aliyekuwa akilila kila wakati. Alikuwepo mtu mmoja ambaye alikuwa akilia kila wakati, lakini walipomuuliza sababu ya kulilia, hakuwajibhu. Mwishowe watu wakajiuliza, “kwa nini mtu huyu analia?” Mmoja wao, alijibu, “labda kuna mtu ana muonea.”

Walianza kumchunguza kwa makini ili waweze kuujua ukweli. Walipofanya hivyo, mtu huyo akaonekana kwamba, huwa analia akiwa mbele ya watu tu, akiwa peke yake halii.  Ndipo wakagundua pia kwamba, macho yake huwa makavu wakati akilia, kumbe alikuwa alijipaka maji machoni ili aonekane kwamba analia. Ndiyo maana wakamwita kwamba ni, “machoji ya kujipakaa.”

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwasingizia wenzake maneno ya uongo katika maisha yake, ili aonekane kuwa mwema. Mtu huyo, huwatesa wenzake kwa kuwadanganya kwamba anaonewa na mtu fulani, kumbe ni muongo. Yeye hujifanya kama anateswa, ili watu wamuonee huruha na wengine waonekane kama watu wanao mtesa, kumbe  ni muongo tu.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na yule anayejipaka macho yake maji ili aonekana kama analia, kwa sababu naye pia ni muongo katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu humwita kwamba ni, “machozi ya kujipaka.” 

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa wakweli kwa kuacha tabia za uongo katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani na wenzao, maishani mwao.

Mwanzo 27:23-24. “Hakumtambua, kwa sababu mikono yake ilikuwa na nywele kama ya ndugu yake Esau, kwa hiyo akambariki. Akamwuliza, “Hivi kweli wewe ni mwanangu Esau?” Akajibu, “Mimi ndiye.’’”

Zaburi 116:11. “Katika taabu yangu nilisema, ‘‘Wanadamu wote ni waongo.’’”
