Huchi ahih leh, ‘Prasad’ pen nek louh hoih pen mai lou di hia?
1 Korinte 10:28 ah, Sawltak Paul in, “Ahihhang in, kua hiam in, Hiai zaw kithoihna ahi, chi a, a hon hilh leh, sia-le-pha theihna ziak in ne kei un amah nou a hon hilhpa ziak in.” chi in ana gen hi. ‘Prasad’ kha pathian lemte kiang a kithoihna ahi chih i theihsa ahihziak in, ei Pathian hing bia Singtangmite a ding in nek siang lou ding suak hi.

Sanggam aw, kingaihtuah in. Na lungsim kotawng ah zo nuam sa hetlou nahi. Na kitheihmohbawl a hiven.

Ei singtangmite leng India gam mi ihi a, India gam mi atamzo Hindu ahi uh chih leng i theihsa ahi. Huaiziak mahtak in, i tenna peuh a Hindute toh (adiak in Khopite ah) sepna-lam ah hi’n inn-lam hitaleh, i khosa khawm ta uh hi.

Khopi khong a khosakna lam hoihzawk ziak a pem khia kitam ta ahihman in, i pilvan poimoh hi. A piichingte omdaan teng mu a, en-ton a, chiing zel, i naupangte leh khangdawngte om ahihman un, amau etton taak ding a ‘khosak leh gamtat’ ah, i mohpuakna uh, Pathian mai ah sang mahmah hi chih thei ni.

Huaiziak a, a piichingte tatdaan hon en sek ua, thil hoih hih di a hanthawn di a muh louh ziak un, amau lemtaan leh nopsak di daan daan in omsek uh hi. Poi lua. Nu leh Pate’n Tate tung a i mohpuakna uh salam kia hilou ahi chih theih poimoh hi. Kha-lam leh khantawn hinna a neihna ding uah leng mohpuakna thupi mahmah nei ihi chih mai in le gen khin zoulou hi. Khotang mite’n leng i naupang leh khangdawngte tung a mohpuakna liantak nei ihi chih thei ni.
Tu leh tu in bang, Pathian in i gamtatnate uh kigenchian ding in hon chi hitaleh, bang chi bang in i ki genchian di uh?
A’ Vualzawlna lam tuamtuam a i muhte uh simsen ding leng hilou hi. Ahia lah, A’ Vualzawlna te ei sa-utna lam leh sa-lunggulhna lam hih buchinna’n i zang zo sop ua maw. Ama’n nuamtak a Amah i biakna di, Amah nung i zuihna di a i dinmun nuamtak ahon bawlsak ahihlam theilou in mangthai gawp hang ei…Puaknathuai ka sa mahmah.

Diwali season hi lel ahih man in, ‘diwali gifts’ tungtang ka gen zek ut hi. Sepna lam leh Hindu lawm ineihte’n ‘gift’ hon pe sek uh hi. A hon piak uh ahihleh zaw, asiatna om in ka ngaihtuah hetkei hi. Hilele a ngen khong a na va pan leh chu Christian etton tak hilou na hi chih kithei in. Gift kha a hon piak uh ngailou ahihdaan theihsak leng poimoh hi. “Adangte a kihel utlou a gifts lah deihzel” hon chi kha thei uh hi. I Laisiangthou in, Tita 2:15 ah “…. Kuamah in nang hon musit kei uh hen.” chi hi. Huaiziak a pilvan poimoh hi.
Amau sahkhua toh kisai a ei apat lam-et neitheilou uh ahihlam uh, apoimoh daan a i theihsak ngam ding ahi. Christian kichi sam ihih leh, Pathian min a, gingloutute lak a i hihtheilouh daan i gente khong a nuamhetlou himah leh, Jesu nungzui ihina a anuamlou i tuah sunsun uh hiai khong hi lel tadih hi. Amau tawndaan simmoh sak di hikei mah leh, amau tawndaan a hon kankuah uh ngailou ahihlam theisak leng, theisiam mahmah uh hi. I gen ngam louh ahih leh bel thutuam ahi a kuamah i ngoh di omlou hi. Jesu nungzui taktak i hih leh, tanchinhoih puangzak di a mohpuakna piak a i om dungzui in, hiai gingloutute lak a i sepna mun ah leng huai mohpuakna pen i taksuah ding hizomahlai hi.

Kolossate 2:8 ah, “Pilvang un, huchilou in zaw kuapeuh in Khrist thu bang hilou in, mihing thugousiah leh khovel thubulte bang zaw in a thupil uh leh khemna peuh in gallak in a hon lakha ding uhi.” chi i mu hi.
A khitna di’n,
Romte 12:1-2 ana ngaihtuah thak ni.
[1] Huchi’n, unaute aw, Pathian zahngaihna ziak in, kithoihna hing leh siangthou leh Pathian lungtuak di’n na pumpi uh kilan di’n k’on ngen ahi; huai tuh na biakna dan ding him uh ahi.
[2]Hiai khovel dan bang in om kei unla; Pathian deihlam a hoih leh, lungtuah huai tak leh, hoihkim, na theihtel theihna ding un, na lungsim uh a thak a om in hong lamdang zaw ta un.

Toupa’n simtute tengteng apoimoh hunhun a hangsantak a Ama deihlam telzaw ding in, A van khamuanna leh haatna in Jesu Khris min in hon thuam chiat hen. Amen.
