He keiki paʻakikī

he keiki paʻakikī Nui mau makahiki i hala aku nei i aʻo ʻia i ka ʻatikala ʻana o ka maʻi keiki ma ke ʻano o kaʻu kuʻuna mālama mālama. I loko o kahi haʻawina, ua hoʻohaunaele nā ​​keiki me nā pilikia ʻē aʻe pehea e mālama ai iā lākou. I kēlā manawa, ʻike ʻia lākou he "keiki paʻakikī". ʻAʻole ʻike ʻia kēia ʻano o ka huaʻōlelo i loko o ke ao o nā kumu a me nā alakaʻi.

Ma ka pule ua hele pinepine wau i kaʻu mau hana hewa a me nā manaʻo a ʻike pono i ke kala ʻana i kaʻu mea i hana. I ka wā ʻole i hōʻole wau iaʻu iho i ka pule, ua kāhea aku au i ka Makua Makua: "He keiki paʻakikī loa wau!" Ke ʻike nei au iaʻu iho me he mea e hāʻule pinepine ai a noʻonoʻo ʻole. Pela anei ke Akua iaʻu? «No ka mea, pū pū nō ʻo Iēhova kou Akua, me ke Ola ikaika. E hauʻoliʻo ia iā ʻoe a pili i kou aloha iā ʻoe, e kala mai ʻo ia iā ʻoe i kona aloha a e hauʻoli a me ʻoe me nā ʻakaʻaka » (Zephaniah 3,17).

ʻO ke Akua a me ka loli ʻole. Inā huhū ʻo ia iaʻu, ua hana wau no. He mea ia iaʻu na ke kuleana, akā he manaʻo anei ke Akua iaʻu? Ua ʻōlelo ke mele mele: "E hoʻomaikaʻi aku i ke Akua o ka lani, no ka mea, ua mau kona maikaʻi." (Salamo 136,26). E mahalo mākou i ke Akua, nona ke aloha holoʻokoʻa, e aloha mau iā mākou. I hoowahawaha i ko kakou mau hewa. Ma kāna aloha mauʻu a me ke aloha a ke Akua e hāʻawi mai ai iā mākou, kāna mau keiki "paʻakikī", he kala a me ka hoʻōla: e ke ano a me nā mea ʻē aʻe. Akā ʻo ke Akua, ʻo ia ka mea waiwai i ke aloha, ma kona aloha nui āna i aloha mai ai iā mākou, ua hana ʻo mākou iā mākou i make i nā hewa e ola pū nei me Kristo - i ola ʻia ʻoe ma ke aloha; a ua hookomoia ma ka lani ma Kristo Iesu » (Epeso 2,4: 6).

He hoʻolālā maikaʻi a ke Akua no ʻoe: "No ka mea, ʻike wau i kaʻu mau manaʻo iā ʻoe, wahi a ka Haku: ʻO nā manaʻo o ka maluhia a ʻaʻole hoʻi e hopohopo au e hāʻawi aku iā ʻoe i ka hope a me ka manaolana" (Ieremia 29,11).

ʻO kāu mau pilikia a me nā pilikia e loaʻa ai ʻoe iā ʻoe iho he paʻakikī, akā ʻaʻole ʻoe ma ke ʻano he kanaka.
