不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

【双语灵修】葛培理布道团:舍,还是得?(2018-5-14)

耶稣说“你们白白地得来,也要白白地舍去。”马太福音 10:8

 Jesus said: Freely ye have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8

关于金钱,有两种哲学。一,撒但哲学。撒但对耶稣说:“你若俯伏拜我,我就把这一切都赐给你。”(太4:9 )二,基督哲学。耶稣说:“你还缺少一件:要变卖你一切所有的,分给穷人,就必有财宝在天上;你还要来跟从我。”(路18:22)第一种哲学,动机是自私。第二种,动机是无私。第一种哲学的中心是贪婪,第二种是神。第一种哲学是关注这个世界,第二种是仰望神。第一种,注定失败。第二种,必然成功。

告诉我,你怎么看待金钱。我可以告诉你,你是如何看待神,这两者紧密相连。人最担心的是自己的钱包。数据表明,在过去几年,美国人在奢侈品和没有意义的东西上的消费十倍于对慈善和宗教的贡献。这不仅仅是一个残酷的统计数据.这是一个基督教大国的肤浅和堕落。

圣经告诉我们,我们只是临时的管家。如果我们滥用神的资源,如同把银子埋在地里的那个人,断然逃脱不了神的审判。我们很大的一个罪,就是不感恩。在难过和麻烦之余,生命中也有很多祝福、喜乐,有能力去看、去听、去说、去想,这都是神的恩赐。我们爱的能力也来自神,我们对神感谢、回报,远远比不上他赐给我们的。你最近做了什么,以表达神过去、现在对你的祝福?

There are clearly two philosophies about money. The first is Satan’s. He says to every man as he said to Christ, “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).The second philosophy is Christ’s. “Sell all that thou hast, and [give it to] the poor… and come, follow me” (Luke 18:22).The first is motivated by selfishness; the second, by unselfishness.The first has greed at the center; the second has God at the heart. The first has an eye for this world; the second has an eye for eternity. The first is slated for failure; the second, for success.

Tell me what you think about money, and I can tell you what you think about God, for these two are closely related. A man’s heart is closer to his wallet than almost anything else.It is a staggering fact that for the past few years we Americans have spent ten times as much for luxuries and nonessentials as we have for charitable and religious purposes. This is more than a cold statistic. It is a commentary on the shallow and superficial religious faith in a nation that is nominally Christian.

The Scripture teaches that we are stewards for a little while of all we earn. If we misuse it, as did the man who buried his talent, it brings upon us the severest judgment of God.One of the worst sins that we can commit is that of ingratitude. In the midst of sorrow and trouble, this life has many blessings, and enjoyment, the ability to see, to hear, to speak, to think, and to imagine-all this comes from the hand of God.Even our capacity for love is a gift from God. We show our gratitude by giving back to Him a part of that which He has given to us. What have you done lately to show your gratitude to God for all that He has done, and is doing, for you?
