神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:从上帝来的智慧(2019.11.26)

惟独从上头来的智慧,先是清洁,后是和平,温良柔顺,满有怜悯,多结善果,没有偏见,没有假冒。雅3:17

The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable. James 3:17

今天,我们已经进入知识大爆炸的时代。电脑和电缆可以在一微秒之内把信息传达到世界的任何角落。过去一百年内发现的东西比以前人类历史所有的发现加起来都多。然而,也就是在近一百年,我们同样经历了前所未有的战争和屠杀。在最根本的问题上,我们同样比任何一个年代都走得更远。

圣经说,有两种智慧。一种是来自上帝的,是带来永生的生命的。这种智慧启示我们的,先是清洁,后是和平,温良柔顺,满有怜悯,多结善果,没有偏见,没有假冒。还有一种智慧,是来自这个世俗的世界。这种智慧排斥上帝和上帝的标准,反而试图通过人类自己的主张和决定来解决问题。不知道第二种智慧会把我们带到哪里?

你会选择哪一种智慧呢?

Today there is more knowledge in the world than ever before. Computers or fiber optic cables can transmit information in a millisecond to any part of the globe. More facts have been discovered in the past century than in all the other centuries of human history combined. Yet that same century also recorded the most devastating wars and the fiercest genocides in human history. We have never been farther from solving our basic problems.

The Bible says there are two kinds of wisdom in the world. First, there is wisdom that is given by God, a wisdom that views life in terms of eternity. Of this wisdom, the scripture says, “The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy” (James 3:17).

The second is the “wisdom of the world.” This wisdom excludes God and His moral standards from human decisions, and seeks to solve society’s problems apart from Him. But where has it gotten us? Which kind of wisdom will you choose?
