UZimu wenza okuthile ngo-lutho

Kusukela emakhasini amakhasi we The Catechism of the Catholic Church CCC 27 “ Isifiso sikaNkulunkulu sibhalwe enhliziyweni yomuntu, ngoba umuntu udalwe uNkulunkulu futhi uNkulunkulu; futhi uNkulunkulu akayeki ukudonsela umuntu kuye. KuNkulunkulu kuphela lapho ayothola khona iqiniso nenjabulo angayeki ukufuna:

Isithunzi somuntu siphumule ngaphezu kwakho konke ngenxa yokuthi ubizelwe ukuhlangana noNkulunkulu. Lesi simemo sokuxoxa noNkulunkulu sibhekiswe kumuntu ngokushesha nje lapho eba khona. Ngoba uma umuntu ekhona kungenxa yokuthi uNkulunkulu umdalele ngothando, nangothando luyaqhubeka nokumgcina ekhona. Ngeke aphile ngokuphelele ngokweqiniso ngaphandle kokuthi evume ngokukhululekile ukuthi uthando luzinikela kumdali wakhe . ”[1]

Bazalwane nabafowethu asinike inkazimulo uNkulunkulu uSomandla, ofisa ukuhlanganyela ubumnandi obunjalo nayo yonke indalo! Sihle kakhulu futhi sinelungelo elingakanani, ukujabulela ubisi noju asinika lona. Ngaphambi kokuthi asidale, umhlaba wawumkhulu futhi ungenamuntu[2] . UNkulunkulu wethu, ngubani mina uqobo abathanda bavume njengoba Master ingcweti, wadala konke ku iyaqhubeka hlangenwe Umuntu onjalo angazi kanjani ukuthi uzoqala kuphi? Wayazi kanjani ukuthi zingaki izindlela ezinama-milky ukwenza? Wayezowahlukanisa kanjani umhlaba namanzi? Ukwenza Ilanga Nenyanga? Lokhu bekungeke kwenzeke kusuka nje. Ngoba akukho lutho olungazidala? U-St. Thomas Aquinas ubhekana nalolu daba kusukela ekubhaleni kwakhe iSumma Theologiae Art.1, Obj 1 ” Kungabonakala sengathi ukudala akuyona into engenzi lutho. Ngo-Augustine uthi: “Ukwenza izinto ezikhathazayo ngezinto ezazingekho; kepha ukudala ukwenza okuthile ngokuletha okuthile kulokho obekuvele kuyikhona. ” UNkulunkulu waletha into enkulu kakhulu kunokuthi nomqondo wami ungaphupha ngayo, izinto amaNgisi awadalile angabuqonda ubuhle obunjalo. Isimangaliso sokubuka umhlaba omuhle kangaka nokuzwa umdali wezulu “Futhi wathi kulungile”!

 

Ukubaluleka kokuthi uNkulunkulu athi “bekukuhle ” , ukuthi i-Master of the Universe ayenzi noma yini engaphelele, akenzi litho kusuka kunoma yiziphi “izingxenye ezisele”. Wena, inhlanzi, oyibamba ovela ogwini lweThe Java Seas oluzungeze i-Indonesia noma izilimo ozivusayo ngaphandle kwedolobha elikhulu laseRiyadh, ezihlahleni ze-Olive ozivuna ngaphandle kweJerusalema, konke okwenziwe, kwenziwa futhi uyaqhubeka wenziwe uphelele emehlweni kaNkulunkulu. Ngoba uNkulunkulu uqobo wamphendula uJobe,

“Ngubani lo owenza mnyama isiluleko ngamazwi angenalwazi? Bhinca okhalweni lwakho njengendoda, ngizakubuza wena, ungitshele.

Wawukuphi lapho ngibeka isisekelo somhlaba? Ngitshele, uma unokuqonda. Ngubani onqume izilinganiso zayo — ngokuqinisekile uyazi! Noma ngubani owelulela ulayini? Kwamiswa kuphi izisekelo zalo, noma ngubani obeka itshe lawo legumbi, lapho izinkanyezi zokusa zihlabelela kanyekanye, nawo wonke amadodana kaNkulunkulu ekhamuluka ngenjabulo?

“Noma ngubani owavala olwandle ngeminyango, lapho iqhuma esizalweni; lapho ngenza amafu abe yisembatho salo, nobumnyama obukhulu baba ngumdililo walo , ngabeka imigoqo nezicabha, ngathi: ‘Uyakuza kuze kube manje, ungabe usaya kude, manje amagagasi akho aziqhenyayo ayohlala’?

Ubukhulu bukaNkulunkulu bungaphezu kwabo bonke ubutha baleli zwe futhi bukhulu kakhulu kunenkosi yamuntu eye yahamba emhlabeni. Ngoba Uthando lwakhe lungumlilo okhanyisela izinhliziyo zabantu abafayo. Isifiso sakhe sokuhlanganyela lolo thando yisizathu esenza ukuthi adale zonke izinto. U-St. Thomas Aquinas ubuye aqinisekise ukuthi ” akumele sicabangele ukuvela komuntu othile kuphela, kepha futhi nokutholakala kwakho konke okuvela kunhloso yonke, onguNkulunkulu; futhi lokhu kukhanya sikubiza ngegama lendalo. Manje okuqhubeka ngokwenziwa ngandlela- thile, akubekiwe kulowo mbukiso; njengalapho umuntu akhiqizwa, wayengekho ngaphambili, kepha umuntu wenziwe “hhayi-umuntu,” futhi mhlophe kusuka “hhayi-mhlophe.” Ngakho-ke uma ukucatshangelwa kwesimo sendalo yonke kusukela kumgomo wokuqala kubhekwe, akunakwenzeka ukuthi noma yikuphi okukhona kufanele kuvezwe ngaphambi kwalokhu kukhanya. Ngoba akukho okufana nokungabikho . Ngakho-ke, njengoba isizukulwane sendoda sisuka “ukungabi-ngumuntu” okungeyena “umuntu,” kanjalo indalo, okuwumbala wazo zonke izinto, ivela “ukungabi-yikho” okungeyona “into.”[4] Yilowo nalowo kithi abafowethu nodadewethu wenziwa ngokumangalisayo ngaye. Cabanga, unyoko nobaba wakho basemhlabeni, bekubambe, uqiniseke ukuthi unezingubo ezinhle ozisongele lapho. Indlela abakwazisa ngayo ukumamatheka kwakho kanye nalawo mehlo amakhulu, amahle. Babukeka kanjani ubuso bakho, ukwakheka kwekhanda lakho. Ukuwumbathisa lowo mzimba omncane futhi ngokwesimo sawo sangaphakathi, qiniseka ukuthi uvikelekile futhi uyavikelwa. Manje, ake ucabange uNkulunkulu, ukuthi akekho umuntu oye wabona ubuso nobuso, nokho wakuqamba emqondweni wakhe. Wayazi lomzimba onjani ukukunika, wayazi isipho esihle kunazo zonke s ukugxilisa lingene ezinhliziyweni zenu. Iningi lalezi zici, ngumphefumulo omuhle awenzile. Lo mphefumulo ubaluleke kakhulu-ke noma iliphi itshe awenzile. Ingumongo odala umzimba wakho wenyama. Kukunika ubuntu bakho, ukuhleka kwakho kanye nesimo sakho njengomuntu ongumuntu.  “Khona-ke iNkosi uNkulunkulu yasibumba umuntu ngothuli oluvela emhlabathini, futhi waphefumulela emakhaleni akhe umoya wokuphila; umuntu waba ngumuntu ophilayo. INkosi uNkulunkulu yatshala insimu e-Edene, empumalanga; wambeka khona umuntu abembumbile. ” [5] Umoya ofanayo owathula phezu kwamanzi e-void nasebumnyameni, unguMoya ofanayo kaNkulunkulu ophilayo owasenza ngomfanekiso wakhe nasekugcwalisekeni kwenjabulo kuye. Cabanga ngalokhu umzuzwana. UNkulunkulu wayengasidingi. Wayengadingi ukudala noma ngubani ukujabulela indalo yakhe. Wayengakwenza ngaphandle kwethu futhi abe nokuthula nobungcweti bakhe. Kepha wayefuna ukuthi kube nomuntu ohlanganyele naye kuJoy. Injabulo lapho ukhushulwa, lapho unezalo yakho yokuqala, lapho uqala ukuthi ngiyakuthanda, lapho uqala ukushada, kepha le Joy ingephakade eliphakeme, ihlanzekile futhi imnandi kakhulu. Kepha lolu “luju” lumnambitha kuphela, uma sesifikile ezulwini futhi siseBukhoneni Bakhe Abanamandla kuMbono weBeatific . Masingachithi isikhathi sethu, ithalente kanye nengcebo yethu. Masingazihlukumezi izilwane nezitshalo ezingaphansi kwesandla sethu. Ake akukho t umonakalo noma zilimaze omunye komunye, ngoba sikhona sonke izingane kaNkulunkulu ophilayo. Masijabule futhi sibonge ngesipho uNkulunkulu asinikeze sona.

Cabanga ngalesi sicaphuno esivela kumuntu omuhle owathintwa isihe sikaNkulunkulu,

“UNkulunkulu wasidala ngokukhululekile ukuze sazi, simthande futhi simkhonze kulempilo futhi sijabule naye kuze kube phakade. Inhloso kaNkulunkulu ngokusidala ukuthi bathole kithi impendulo yothando nomsebenzi lapha emhlabeni, ukuze sizuze umgomo wethu wenjabulo yaphakade naye ezulwini.
Zonke izinto ezikhona kulomhlaba ziyizipho zikaNkulunkulu, zidalelwe thina, ukuze sibe izindlela esingazi ngazo kangcono, simthande ngokwengeziwe futhi simkhonze ngokwethembeka ngokwengeziwe.
Ngenxa yalokhu, kufanele sazise futhi sisebenzise lezi zipho zikaNkulunkulu ngokungasho lutho njengoba zisisiza ekufinyeleleni inhloso yethu yenkonzo yothando nobunye noNkulunkulu. Kepha noma ngabe izinto zidaliwe zivimbela intuthuko yethu ekufinyeleleni inhloso yethu, kufanele sizivumele zihambe. ”
– ISt Ignatius kaLoyola
