6 Kunamata kwa munthu kungaipisidwe na bzipembedzo bzakunama penu munthuyo ambasekerera nsiku za feriado zakudziwika. Tindendemezere na Natale. Natale imbakumbukiridwa ninga nsiku ya kubadwa kwa Jezu Kristu, ndipo pafupi-fupi bzipembedzo bzense bzacikristau bzimbakumbukira nsiku imweyi. Koma, palibe comwe cinkulatiza kuti anyakupfunza wakuyambirira wa Jezu akhakumbukira nsiku za feriado. Bukhu lakuti Sacred Origins of Profound Things (Origens Sagradas de Coisas Profundas) limbati: “Kwa magole madzana mawiri Kristu atabadwa, palibe akhadziwa, ndipo ni wanthu ang’ono-ng’ono womwe akhanabzo basa, kudziwa kuti ni lini maka-maka pomwe iye adabadwa.”

7 Napo anyakupfunza wa Jezu angadadziwa nsiku yomwe iye adabadwa, iwo angadaisekerera lini nsikuyo. Thangwe ranyi? Thangwe rakuti bukhu la The World Book Encyclopedia limbalewa kuti Wakristau wakuyambirira “akhawona kuti kukumbukira  nsiku yakubadwa ya munthu ali-wense bzikhali bzinthu bzacikunja.” Bibliya limbalewa bza kusekerera kwa nsiku ya kubadwa ya wamambo awiri womwe akhanamata lini Yahova. (Ciyambo 40:20; Marko 6:21) Madyo ya kusekerera nsiku zakubadwa yakhacitidwambo na wanthu womwe akhambalemekeza mirungu yacikunja. Mwa ciratizo, pa Maio 24 wanthu wa ku Roma akhambasekerera nsiku yakubadwa kwa mulungu wacikazi Diana. Pa kutewezera nsiku imweyi, iwo akhakumbukira nsiku ya kubadwa kwa mulungu wawo dzuwa, wakucemeredwa Apollo. Na tenepo, kusekerera nsiku yakubadwa kukhacitika na wanthu womwe akhanamata mirungu yapezi, sikuti Wakristau.

8. Fotokozani kubverana komwe kulipo pakati pa kukumbukira nsiku yakubadwa na kukhulupira malodza.

Anyakupfunza wace akhadziwa kuti kukumbukira nsiku yakubadwa kumbabverana na kukhulupira malodza. Mwa ciratizo, Wagirego na Waroma azinji nthawe zakale akhakhulupira kuti pana mzimu omwe ukhakhala ulipo pomwe munthu ali-wense wabadwa ndipo umbakhotcerera munthuyo pa moyo wace wense. Bukhu la Lore of Birthdays (A Tradição dos Aniversários Natalícios) limbalewa kuti: “Mzimu umweyu umbakhala pa ciphatano na mulungu omwe nsiku yace yakubadwa ni nsiku yomwe munthuyo adabadwa.” Mpsakudziwikiratu kuti Yahova angakomedwe lini na msinda uli-wense omwe unkulatiza kuti pana ciphatano pakati pa Jezu na kukhulupira malodza. (Zaiya 65:11, 12) Tsono, thangwe ranyi wanthu azinji ambasekerera Natale?

Wanthu winango womwe patsogolo pace  adalewa kuti mbakristau “adafuna kuti nsikuyo ipite m’mbuto mwa nsiku ya kukumbukira mulungu wapezi Waciroma womwe akhali ‘kubadwa kwa dzuwa lakusaya kukundika.’” (The New Encyclopædia Britannica) Mu nthawe ya mphepo, pomwe dzuwa limbakhala liribe mphanvu, kukhacitidwa miyambo ya kunamata dzuwa kuti mphanvu yace ibwerere pomwe kucokera ulendo bwakutali. 25 Dezembro idayamba kumbakumbukiridwa kukhala nsiku yomwe dzuwa limbayamba ulendo bwace bwa kubwerera. Watsogoleri wa bzipembedzo wadacitisa nsiku imweyi kuwonedwa ninga “Yacikristau.” *

10. Mu nthawe za kale-kale, thangwe ranyi wanthu winango akhasekerera lini Natale?

Tsimikizani kuti Yahova, omwe adayambisa banja, an’funa kuti imwepo mukhale pa uxamwali wabwino na wacibale wanu. (Wayefezo 3:14, 15) Tsono imwepo mungalimbise kubverana kwanu na wacibale wanu mu njira yomwe Mulungu ambabvuma. Pakulewa bza nkhani yomwe njakufunika kwene-kwene kwa ife, mpostolo Paulo adanemba kuti: ‘Pitirizani nthawe zense kutsimikiza kuti cinthu cakubvumizika kwa mbuya n’ciponi.’Wayefezo 5:10.
