KISWAHILI: ANAYETANGULIA MBELE HUNYWA MAJI SAFI.

Methali hiyo huongelea maisha ya wasukuma ambao ni miongoni mwa makabila yanayoishi nchini Tanzania. Watu hao hutumia methali katika kufikisha ujumbe walionao kwa wenzao. Wao hufuga mifugo kama vile ng’ombe watumikao kueleza mienendo yao.

 Watu hao hutoa malezi mbalimbali kwa watu wao kupitia mazingira hayo. Huo ndiyo mwanzo wa methali hiyo, ambayo huangalia ng’ombe atanguliae kwenda kunywa maji kwenye lambo au mtoni. Ng’ombe huyo, hunywa maji masafi kwa sababu huwa yamejichuja kwa kubakia juu na matope kwenda chini.

 Lakini ng’ombe huyo, hunywa maji hayo huku amekanyaga miguu yake ndani ya maji hayo au lambo hilo. Hivyo yeye huyavuluga maji hayo wakati anapokunywa yale yaliyo mazuri au masafi. Wale wanaofika kunywa baada yake, hunywa machafu. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “Inayotangulia kufika (kwa kawaida katika kundi la ng’ombe) hunywa maji safi.”

Methali hiyo,  hufundisha watu juu ya kuwahi kufika kwenye sehemu ya tukio walioalikwa ili wakafaidike vizuri kupata ujumbe uliondaliwa. Kwa hiyo, yule atakayewahi kufika atafaidika kupata yale yote yaliyoandaliwa hapo. Lakini yule atakayechelewa atakosa. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “mtu anayeongoza (kwa kawaida katika kundi la ng’ombe) hunywa maji safi.”

Siku moja nikiwa na uzoefu wa uchungaji katika jumuiya fulani ndogo ya wakristo, baada ya kumaliza maombi ya jumuiya na kushiriki tulipanga foleni kwa ajili ya chakula cha mchana, kwenye mstari nilikuwa mtu wa tano, ndipo mzee mmoja akaniambia, mbona unachelewa, huwezi kupata chakula kizuri  unajua kwamba “mtu anayeongoza (kwa kawaida katika kundi la ng’ombe) hunywa maji safi”.

Matumizi ya methali hii katika muktadha wa Kiafrika yanasaidia sana kwa mfano juu ya ushiriki wa mapema katika Sinodi ya Maaskofu ambayo Papa ametoa wito wa ushiriki wa watu wote katika sinodi. Kupitia sakramenti ya ubatizo, sisi sote ni ushirika wa watu walio sawa kwa hadhi na katika wito wa ufuasi huku tukitofautiana katika karama na ofisi. Tumeitwa kushiriki katika ukuaji wa Kanisa kwa njia ya sinodi kwa kauli mbiu ya sinodi “ushirika, ushiriki na umisionari”. Kwa hivyo, kama mchungaji anayepeleka ng’ombe zake mtoni akijua kwamba zote zitapaswa kunywa maji. Lakini wale walio mstari wa mbele wana uwezekano wa kunywa maji safi kama methali isemavyo.

Methali hiyo inatukumbusha kushiriki kwa wakati ufaao, ili tuweze kutoa ufahamu unaofaa kwa maswali yaliyoulizwa, badala ya kungoja hadi mwingine ajadili ndipo aje na kusema “baada ya yote niliyozungumza”.

Kutokana na methali yetu ya Wasukuma, ng’ombe wote hunywa maji lakini walio mstari wa mbele hunywa sio maji tu bali maji safi. Kama swali nililoulizwa na mzee katika jumuiya ndogo ya Kikristo, tunapaswa kuulizana “kwa nini ninakawia kushiriki katika sinodi?” siwezi kujua kwamba “mtu anayeongoza (kwa kawaida katika kundi la ng’ombe) hunywa maji safi”.

Mathayo 18:19-20 “Tena nawaambia, wawili wenu watakapopatana duniani katika jambo lolote watakaloliomba, watafanyiwa na Baba yangu aliye mbinguni. Kwa kuwa walipo wawili watatu wamekusanyika kwa jina langu, nami nipo papo hapo katikati yao”

1Yohana 5:14 “Na huu ndio ujasiri tulio nao kwake, ya kuwa tukiomba kitu sawasawa na mapenzi yake, atusikia.”

Zaburi 133:1 “Tazama, jinsi ilivyo vema na kupendeza Ndugu wakaapo kwa umoja!”

ENGLISH: THE ONE WHICH LEADS (USUALLY IN A HERD OF CATTLE) DRINKS CLEAN WATER.

The Sukuma, as one among the ethnic groups found in Tanzania, uses proverbs, sayings, songs and riddles in conveying some important and contractive messages to a particular person or group of people in the community, depending on the certain circumstances.

Traditionally, the Sukuma are pastoralists, hence sometimes use the animals’ behavior in portraying or identifying some useful behavior observed from these animals and apply them to the people in order to shape their living in their respective community.

From this detail we come to the proverb “Nh’onga mbele igang’waga minze milu(matengeku)”. Thus when leading cattle to the river for drinking water, it very interesting experience that those in the fore line are likely to enjoy the water, because in order to drink water they must enter in the river or pond. In so doing they found water is still clean compared to those behind them.

One day during my pastoral experience in a certain small Christian community, after finishing the communal prayer and sharing we lined up for lunch, in the line I was the fifth person, then an old man told me, why are you delaying, can’t you know that “the one which leads(usually in a herd of cattle) drinks clean water”.

The use of this proverb in African context help much on the instance on the early participation in Synod of the bishops which the Pope has called for the universal participation in the synod. Through the sacrament of baptism, we are all the communion of people who are equal in dignity and in the call to discipleship while differing in charism and office. We are called to participate in the growth of the Church through the synod by the synodal  motto “communion, participation and mission”. Therefore as the shepherd who takes his held to the river knowing that all will have to drink water, but those in the fore line are likely to drink clean water as the proverbs says. The proverb remind us to participate in due time, so that we may give suitable insight to the questions asked, rather than waiting till the other have discussed then coming up and saying “after all I have discussed”. From our Sukuma proverb, the whole held of cattle drink water but those in fore line drink not only water but clean water. Like the question I was asked by the old man in small Christian community, we should ask one another “why am I delaying to participate in the synod?” can’t I know that “the one which leads(usually in a herd of cattle) drinks clean water”.

Mathew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them”

1John 5:14 “And this is the confidence we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us”

Psalm 133:1 “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!”

1002. NGOSHA GUGEMA (NIMO) IWE.

Olihoyi munhu uyo agalima ngunda ntale go mandege. Amandege genayo, gagazwa na gukula chiza mpaga gikoma gulimila ngese. Aliyo lulu ingese yiniyo, igakula mpaga abhatumami bhuyiyogoha uguyilimila.

MTU HUJARIBU (KAZI) JIWE.

Alikuwepo mtu mmoja aliyelima shamba kubwa la mahindi katika kijiji fulani. Mahindi hayo yaliota na kukua vizuri mpaga palizi yake ikaanza kuowaogopeshwa wafanya kazi wake. Mwenye shamba aliwaambia wafanyakazi wake hao, “msiogopee macho kwa kuiangalia palizi hii, jaribuni kuipalilia kuifanya kazi hii ili muone matokeo yake.

Mwanamume mmoja alisema, “ngoja mimi nijaribu kuipalilia hii palizi.” Wengine warimjibu, “jaribu tuone kama utaimaliza.”

Mwanaume huyo alijaribu kulipalilia shamba lile pole pole mpaka akalimaliza lote. Alipomaliza kulipaliliza shamba lile lote watu walishangaa sana na kukiri kwamba, kweli kujaribu kufanya kazi ambayo ni ngumu kama hiyo, ni njia ya kupata mafanikio makubwa katika maisha ya mwanadamu. Ndiyo maana walisema kwamba, “mwanaume (mtu) kujaribu (kazi) jiwe

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na uthubutu wa kujaribu kuzitekeleza kazi zao hata kama zitakuwa ngumu kiasi gani. Mifano ya kazi hizo ni pamoja na kuanza kazi mpya ya kujiajiri au kuajiriwa kwenye maofisi, kuanza biashara mpya na kadhalika.

Ina wahimiza kuongeza bidii katika kuyatekeleza majukumu yao ili waweze kuyakamilisha mapema iwezekanavyo kwa ajili ya kujipatia mafanikio mengi mashani mwao.

Methali hiyo huwahimiza wanasayansi kuutumia ubunifu wao katika kufanya tafiti za kuwawezesha kupata dawa za kutibu majonjwa mbalimbali ukiwemo ule unaotokana na virus vya corona, ujulikanao kama covid 19. Wanatakiwa kufanya majiribio mengi kwenye maabara bila kukata tamaa mpaka waweze kulikamisha lengo la kupata tiba ya ugonjwa huo.

Watu wa kundi hili huwa wanafundishana katika maisha yao ya kila siku kwa kutumia methali, misemo, mafumbo na kadhalika. “Mtu hujaribu (kazi) jiwe (hufanya bidii kuanza kazi ngumu)” ni mojawapo ya methali ambazo hutumia katika maisha yao ya kila siku.

Kulikuwa na mtu mmoja ambaye alilima shamba kubwa la mahindi katika kijiji fulani. Mahindi yalichipuka na kukua vizuri hadi magugu yake yakaanza kuwatia wasiwasi wafanyakazi wake. Mwenye shamba aliwaambia wafanyakazi wake, “Msiogope kwa kulitazama magugu haya. Lazima ujaribu kuipalilia ili kuona matokeo yake.

Mtu mmoja ambaye alikuwa mmoja wa wafanyakazi wake alijibu, “Acha nijaribu kupalilia shamba hili.” Wafanyakazi wengine walijibu wakisema, “Hebu tuone kama utaweza kumaliza.”

Yule mtu alianza kupalilia shamba vile taratibu hadi akamaliza yote. Alipofanikiwa kufanya hivyo, wafanyakazi wengine walishangaa na kukiri kwamba, “ni kweli kufanya jitihada za kufanya kazi hiyo ngumu, ni njia ya kupata mafanikio makubwa katika maisha ya binadamu.” Ndiyo maana wakasema kwamba, “mtu hujaribu (kazi ngumu) jiwe.

MADA: UVUMILIVU.

Maana ya methali hii ni kwamba mtu hujaribu hata asiweze kufanya hivyo. Kuna msemo wa ulimwengu wote: ‘Hakuna ubaya katika kujaribu.’ Winston Churchill: “Usikate tamaa.” Wayne Gretsky: “Unakosa 100% ya picha za magongo ambazo hupigi.” Akisema kwenye gravestone huko Shinyanga: “Alijaribu.”

SAMBAMBA ZA KIBIBLIA

Mathayo 7:13-14 “Ingieni kwa kupitia mlango ulio mwembamba; maana mlango ni mpana, na njia ni pana iendayo upotevuni, nao ni wengi waingiao kwa mlango huo. Jinsi lango ni jembamba na njia iliyosonga iendayo uzimani. Na wanaoipata ni wachache.”

Luka 13:24-25 “Jitahidini kuingia kwa kupitia mlango ulio mwembamba, kwa maana nawaambia ya kwamba wengi watajaribu kuingia lakini hawatapata nguvu za kutosha. Baada ya mwenye nyumba kusimama na kuufunga mlango, ndipo ninyi mtasimama nje mkibisha hodi na kusema, ‘Bwana, tufungulie mlango.’ Naye atawaambia, ‘Sijui mnatoka wapi.”

 Yaani kujitahidi kuingia kwa lango jembamba ni kazi ngumu inayohitaji nidhamu.

Yohana 14:6 “Yesu akamwambia, Mimi ndimi njia na kweli na uzima. mtu haji kwa Baba ila kwa njia ya mimi.”

MTAKATIFU PAULO JUU YA KAZI NGUMU.

Waefeso 4:3 Mtakatifu Paulo anasisitiza katika “kujitahidi kuuhifadhi umoja wa roho kwa kifungo cha amani;

Waebrania 12:14 “Tafuteni kwa bidii kuwa na amani na watu wote, na huo utakatifu, ambao hapana mtu atakayemwona Bwana asipokuwa nao.”

MATUMIZI YA KISASA NA MAISHA YA DINI

Asubuhi ya Ijumaa Kuu Mtakatifu Petro aliogopa kumshuhudia Kristo na akakimbia huku akiota moto badala ya kufanya juhudi na kwa ujasiri kuchukua nafasi hiyo kumshuhudia Kristo.

Mmishonari hana budi kujaribu, kujihatarisha. Mmishonari anapaswa kuacha utamaduni wake wa nyumbani ili kugundua mambo mapya katika mahali papya. Mshtuko wa kitamaduni unahusisha mchakato wa kufa. Mmisionari anaingia katika maisha ya watu wapya na kuweka mizizi katika mahali papya na utamaduni mpya – uzoefu ambao anaweza kuitwa tena na tena. Hii inaunganishwa na hatari katika mchakato wa uinjilishaji. Mmisionari yuko wazi kwa mawazo mapya na tamaduni mpya. Mtu kama huyo huenda kwa eneo lisilojulikana na haogopi majaribio.

Mmishonari ni mtu makini anayejaribu/anafanya juhudi kuwa mtakatifu. Kupitia ubatizo kila Mkristo anakuwa mmishonari anayehubiri habari njema ya Yesu Kristo, kwa wengine kupitia njia yake ya kuishi. Anapaswa kujitahidi kuishi maisha matakatifu.

Methali hii hufundisha watu jinsi ya kuwa na ujasiri mkubwa wa kujaribu kutekeleza kazi zao bila kujali ni ngumu jinsi gani. Mfano wa kazi hizo ni pamoja na: kuanza kazi mpya ya kujiajiri au kazi ya ofisini, kuanzisha biashara mpya, ugunduzi wa kisayansi unaopelekea uwepo wa Meli, ndege na kadhalika.

Inawahimiza watu kufanya kazi kwa bidii zaidi katika kutekeleza majukumu yao ili waweze kuyakamilisha mapema iwezekanavyo kwa ajili ya kupata mafanikio makubwa katika miradi yao.

Methali hii pia inawahimiza wanasayansi kuendelea kutumia ubunifu wao katika kufanya tafiti ambazo zinaweza kupelekea kupatikana kwa dawa za kutibu magonjwa mbalimbali, yakiwemo haya yanayosababishwa na virusi vya corona, vinavyojulikana kwa jina la Covid-19.

ENGLISH: THE PERSON TRIES (A WORK) A STONE (MAKES AN EFFORT TO START A DIFFICULT WORK) TO EAT A STONE.

There was a man who plowed a large field of maize in a certain village. The maize sprouted and grew well until its weeds began to worrisome his workers. The owner of that field told his workers, “Do not be afraid just by looking at this weed. You have to try weeding it out so as to see its results.”

One man who was one of his workers responded, “Let me try to weed this field.” The other workers replied saying, “Let us see if you can manage to finish it.”

The man started to weed such field slowly until he finished it all. When he manage to do so, the other workers were amazed and confessed saying that, “it is true that making an effort to do such a difficult job, is a way for achieving great success in the life of human beings.” That is why they said that, “the person (man) tries (a work) a stone.

Theme: perseverance.

The meaning of this proverb is that the person tries even if he cannot do it. There is a universal saying: There is no harm in trying. Winston Churchill: “Don’t give up.” Wayne Gretsky: “You miss 100% of the shots in hockey that you don’t take.” Saying on gravestone in Shinyanga: “He tried.”

Biblical Parallels

Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate for the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

Luke 13:24 – 25 “Strive to enter through the narrow door, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough. After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door, then will you stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ He will say to you in reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’

 That is say, striving to enter by the narrow gate is a hard work which takes discipline.

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

PAUL ON HARD WORK.

Ephesians 4:3 St. Paul insists in “striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace:

Hebrews 12: 14 “Strive for peace with everyone, and for that holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”

CONTEMPORARY USE AND RELIGION APPLICATION

On Good Friday morning St. Peter was afraid to witness to Christ and ran away while warming himself at the fire rather than making an effort and boldly take the opportunity to witness to Christ.

The missionary has to try, to take risks. The missionary has to leave behind his or her home culture to discover new things in a new place.  Culture shock involves a dying process.  The missionary enters into the life of a new people and puts down roots in a new place and new culture – an experience that he or she may be called to again and again.  This is connected to the risk in the evangelization process.  The missionary is open to new ideas and new cultures.  Such a person goes to unknown territory and is not afraid to experiment. 

A missionary is a serious person who tries/makes an effort to be holy. Through baptism every Christian becomes a missionary who preaches the good news of Jesus Christ, to others through his or her way of living. He or she has to strive for living a holy life.

This proverb teaches people on how to have strong courage of trying to carry out their tasks no matter how difficult they may be. Examples of such jobs include: starting a new self-employment work or office job, starting a new business, scientific discovery which leads to the presences of Ships, airplanes and and so on.

It encourages people enough to work harder in fulfilling their responsibilities so that they could complete them as early as possible for achieving greater successes in their projects.

This proverb also encourages scientists to carry on using their innovations in doing researches which can lead to the finding of medicines for treating various ailments, including this which is caused by the corona virus, which is known as Covid 19.

KISWAHILI: MCHWA ULIJARIBU JIWE.

Mchwa ni viumbe wanaojaribu kula kila kitu wanachokutana nacho hata kama kitakuwa kigumu namna gani. Mchwa hao hujaribu kula hata jiwe mpata wahakikishe kwamba wameshindwa kwa sababu ya uvumilivu wao. Ndiyo maana watu wakiwa na kazi ngumu huhimizana kuendelea kuitekeleza kazi hiyo kwa kusema kwamba, “mchwa alijaribu jiwe.”

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mkuliwa mwenye uvumilifu wa kutekeleza kazi zake aliyewahimiza wafanyakazi wake kulipalilia shamba lake mpaka wakafaulu kulimaliza. Mkulima huyo alilima shamba kubwa la mahindi katika kijiji fulani.

Mahindi hayo yaliota na kuchipua vizuri mpaga magugu yake yakaanza kuowaogopesha au kuwatia wasiwasi wafanya kazi wake. Mkuliwa huyo, aliwaambia wafanyakazi wake hao kwamba, “msiogopee macho kwa kuyaangalia magugu haya, jaribuni kuipalilia palizi hiyi kama wale mchwa walivyoaribu kula hata jiwe ili muone matokeo yake.”

Mfanya kazi mmoja alisema, “ngoja mimi nijaribu kuipalilia hii palizi, kama hao mchwa waliojaribu kula jiwe.” Wengine walimjibu, “jaribu tuone kama utaweza kuimaliza.”

Mfanya kazi huyo alijaribu kulipalilia shamba lile pole pole mpaka akalimaliza lote. Alipomaliza kulipalilia shamba lile lote watu walishangaa sana na kukiri kwamba, ‘kweli kujaribu kufanya kazi ambayo ni ngumu kama wale mchwa walivyojaribu kula jiwe, ni njia ya kupata mafanikio makubwa katika maisha ya mwanadamu.’ Ndiyo maana wenye busara walifundishana kujaribu kufanya kazi ngumu kwa kusema kwamba, “mchwa ulijaribu (kula) jiwe

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na uthubutu wa kujaribu kuzitekeleza kazi zao kwa uvumilivu hata kama zitakuwa ngumu kiasi gani. Mifano ya kazi hizo ni pamoja na kuanza kazi mpya ya kujiajiri au kuajiriwa kwenye maofisi mbalimbali yakiwemo yale ya kiserikali na ya watu binafsi, kuanza biashara mpya na kadhalika.

Ina wahimiza watu kuongeza bidii katika kuyatekeleza majukumu yao ili waweze kuyakamilisha mapema iwezekanavyo kwa ajili ya kujipatia mafanikio mengi maishani mwao.

Methali hiyo huwahimiza pia wanasayansi kuutumia ubunifu wao katika kufanya tafiti za kuwawezesha kupata dawa za kutibu magonjwa mbalimbali ukiwemo ule unaotokana na virusi vya corona, ujulikanao kama Uviko -19. Wanatakiwa kuwa na uvumilivu wa kufanya majaribio mengi kwenye maabara bila kukata tamaa mpaka waweze kulikamisha lengo la kupata tiba ya ugonjwa huo.

MADA: UVUMILIVU.

Maana ya methali hii ni kwamba mchwa hujaribu hata usiweze kufanya hivyo. Kuna msemo wa ulimwengu wote usemao: Hakuna ubaya katika kujaribu. Winston Churchill: “Usikate tamaa.” Wayne Gretsky: “Unakosa 100% ya picha za magongo ambazo hupigi.” Alisema kwenye gravestone huko Shinyanga: “Alijaribu.”

SAMBAMBA ZA KIBIBLIA

Mathayo 7:13-14 “Ingieni kwa kupitia mlango ulio mwembamba; maana mlango ni mpana, na njia ni pana iendayo upotevuni, nao ni wengi waingiao kwa mlango huo. Jinsi lango ni jembamba na njia iliyosonga iendayo uzimani. Na wanaoipata ni wachache.”

Luka 13:24-25 “Jitahidini kuingia kwa kupitia mlango ulio mwembamba, kwa maana nawaambia ya kwamba wengi watajaribu kuingia lakini hawatapata nguvu za kutosha. Baada ya mwenye nyumba kusimama na kuufunga mlango, ndipo ninyi mtasimama nje mkibisha hodi na kusema, ‘Bwana, tufungulie mlango.’ Naye atawaambia, ‘Sijui mnatoka wapi.”

 Yaani kujitahidi kuingia kwa lango jembamba ni kazi ngumu inayohitaji nidhamu.

Yohana 14:6 “Yesu akamwambia, Mimi ndimi njia na kweli na uzima. mtu haji kwa Baba ila kwa njia ya mimi.”

MTAKATIFU PAULO JUU YA KAZI NGUMU.

Waefeso 4:3 Mtakatifu Paulo anasisitiza katika “kujitahidi kuuhifadhi umoja wa roho kwa kifungo cha amani;

Waebrania 12:14 “Tafuteni kwa bidii kuwa na amani na watu wote, na huo utakatifu, ambao hapana mtu atakayemwona Bwana asipokuwa nao.”

MATUMIZI YA KISASA NA MAISHA YA KIDINI

Asubuhi ya Ijumaa Kuu Mtakatifu Petro aliogopa kumshuhudia Kristo na akakimbia huku akiota moto badala ya kufanya juhudi na kwa ujasiri kuchukua nafasi hiyo katika kumshuhudia Kristo.

Mmishonari hana budi kujaribu, kujihayatarisha vizuri. Mmishonari anapaswa kuacha utamaduni wake wa nyumbani ili kugundua mambo mapya katika mahali papya. Mshtuko wa kiutamaduni unahusisha mchakato wa kufa. Mmisionari huingia katika maisha ya watu wapya na kuweka mizizi katika mahali papya na utamaduni mpya – uzoefu ambao anaweza kuitwa kuishi tena na tena. Hii inaunganishwa na hatari katika mchakato wa uinjilishaji. Mmisionari yuko wazi kwa mawazo mapya na tamaduni mpya. Mtu kama huyo huenda kwenye eneo lisilojulikana na haogopi majaribio.

Mmishonari ni mtu makini anayejaribu/anafanya juhudi ya kuwa mtakatifu. Kupitia ubatizo kila Mkristo anakuwa mmishonari anayehubiri habari njema ya Yesu Kristo, kwa wengine kupitia njia yake ya kuishi. Anapaswa kujitahidi kuishi maisha matakatifu.

Methali hii hufundisha watu jinsi ya kuwa na ujasiri mkubwa wa kujaribu kutekeleza kazi zao bila kujali ni ngumu jinsi gani. Mfano wa kazi hizo ni pamoja na: kuanza kazi mpya ya kujiajiri au kazi ya ofisini, kuanzisha biashara mpya, ugunduzi wa kisayansi unaopelekea uwepo wa Meli, ndege na kadhalika.

Inawahimiza watu kufanya kazi kwa bidii zaidi katika kutekeleza majukumu yao ili waweze kuyakamilisha mapema iwezekanavyo kwa ajili ya kujipatia mafanikio makubwa katika miradi yao.

Methali hii pia inawahimiza wanasayansi kuendelea kutumia ubunifu wao katika kufanya tafiti ambazo zinaweza kupelekea kupatikana kwa dawa za kutibu magonjwa mbalimbali, yakiwemo haya yanayosababishwa na virusi vya corona, vinavyojulikana kwa jina la Uviko-19.

ant-11

ENGLISH: THE ANT TRIED (MADE AN EFFORT TO EAT) THE ROCK (STONE).

Ants are creatures that try to eat everything which they come across, no matter how difficult it may be. These ants try to eat even a stone enough to make sure that they have failed because of their patience. That is why when people have a difficult work encourage one another to keep going by saying, “the ant tried (made an effort to eat) the rock (stone).”

This proverb is compared to a patient farmer who encourages his workers to weed his field until they have successfully completed it. This farmer cultivated a large maize field in one village.

The maize sprouted and grew well until the weeds began to frighten or disturb its workers. He said to his workers, “do not be afraid just by looking at these weeds, try to weed them out as the ants tried to eat even a stone, so as to see the results.”

One worker said, “Let me try to weed this field, similar to the ants that tried to eat the stone.” The other workers replied, “Let us see if you can finish it.”

The laborer tried to weed the field slowly until he finished it all. When he had finished weeding the whole field, the people were amazed and confessed that, ‘surely trying to work as hard as ants tried to eat a stone, is the way to great success in human life.’ That is why the wise men taught each other to work hard tolerantly by saying, “the ant tried (made an effort to eat) the stone.”

THEME: PERSEVERANCE.

The meaning of this proverb is that the ant tries even if it cannot do it. There is a universal saying: There is no harm in trying. Winston Churchill: “Don’t give up.” Wayne Gretsky: “You miss 100% of the shots in hockey that you don’t take.” Saying on gravestone in Shinyanga: “He tried.”

BIBLICAL PARALLELS

Scripture: Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter through the narrow gate for the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”

Luke 13:24 – 25, “Strive to enter through the narrow door, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough. After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door, then will you stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ He will say to you in reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’

 That is say, striving to enter by the narrow gate is a hard work which takes discipline.

John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

PAUL ON HARD WORK.

Ephesians 4:3, St. Paul insists in “striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace:

Hebrews 12: 14, “Strive for peace with everyone, and for that holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”

CONTEMPORARY USE AND RELIGION APPLICATION

On Good Friday morning St. Peter was afraid to witness to Christ and ran away while warming himself at the fire rather than making an effort and boldly take the opportunity to witness Christ.

The missionary has to try, to take risks. The missionary has to leave behind his or her home culture to discover new things in a new place.  Culture shock involves a dying process.  The missionary enters into the life of a new people and puts down roots in a new place and new culture – an experience that he or she may be called to again and again.  This is connected to the risk in the evangelization process.  The missionary is open to new ideas and new cultures.  Such a person goes to unknown territory and is not afraid to experiment. 

A missionary is a serious person who tries/makes an effort to be holy. Through baptism every Christian becomes a missionary who preaches the good news of Jesus Christ, to others through his or her way of living. He or she has to strive for living a holy life.

This proverb teaches people on how to have strong courage of trying to carry out their tasks no matter how difficult they may be. Examples of such jobs include: starting a new self-employment work or office job, starting a new business, scientific discovery which leads to the presences of Ships, airplanes and so on.

It encourages people enough to work harder in fulfilling their responsibilities so that they could complete them as early as possible for achieving greater successes in their projects.

This proverb also encourages scientists to carry on using their innovations in doing researches which can lead to the finding of medicines for treating various ailments, including this which is caused by the corona virus, which is known as Covid 19.

Kitendawili hicho, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hufanya kazi zake kwa kuwaiga wengine bila kutumia ubunifu wake, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, huwa hafikiri kibunifu katika maisha yake na utendaji wake, kwa sababu ya kuwaiga watu wengine bila kuutumia ubunifu wake. Yeye hushindwa kuiendeleza vizuri familia yake, kwa sababu ya kuwaiga wengine hao katika kazi zake, na maisha yake, bila kufikiri kibunifu, maishani mwake.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na kivuli kinachomuiga mwenye nacho, kwa sababu naye hufanya kazi zake kwa kuwaiga wengine bila kufikiri kwa kutumia ubunifu wake, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana yule anayemuiga husema kwamba, “pale ninapopandia mti na mwehu wangu amenisubiri – Kivuli.”

ENGLISH: I HAVE A RIDDLE – LET IT COME.

WHEREVER I PLANT A TREE AND MY CRAZY FRIEND IS WAITING FOR ME – A SHADOW.

This riddle speaks about a shadow of a man. This shadow impersonates what the possessor does, because it is a reflector of his body. In itself it is compared to crazy friend because of its inability to think creatively. That is why the owner of it says that, “wherever I plant a tree and my crazy friend is waiting for me – a shadow.”

This riddle is equaled to a man who does his work by imitating others without using his creative thinking in life. This man does not think creatively in his life, because he imitates other people without using his thinking capacity. He fails to develop well his family, because of imitating others in his daily economic activities without having a creative thinking in life.

This person resembles the shadow of a person that imitates the possessor, because he also does his works by imitating others without thinking creatively in his life. That is why the one who imitates him says that, “Wherever I plant a tree and my crazy friend is waiting for me – a shadow.”

This riddle imparts in people a clue on how to do their work with creative thinking, so that they can achieve more successes in their family lives.
