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).

要保守自己清洁。——提摩太前书5:22

Keep thyself pure.—1 Timothy 5:22

法利赛人并不快乐。他们经常皱着眉头,紧绷着神经,垂头丧气,心中充满怨恨、苦毒、骄傲。这是为什么?很简单,因为他们忘记了上帝关于清心的教导。他们认为只要遵守律法就足够了,但这并不是上帝的意思。遵守律法并不能使心灵洁净,也不能让人心中愉快。上帝不只是看人外在的行为,而是深入考察内心,查验人心的动机、思想及目的。

The Pharisees were not happy men. They had furrowed brows, nervous tension, frustration. They were full of resentments, bitterness, prejudices, and hatreds. Why? Simply because they had lost sight of God’s conception of the pure in heart. They thought that as long as they kept the letter of the law that was enough. But this was not God’s plan. This did not produce purity of heart. This did not bring about happiness of soul. Jesus taught that God looks deeper than the outside actions of an individual. He searches and ponders the heart. God judges not so much the outside as He does the inside. He looks to the motives, thoughts, and intents of your heart.

每日祷告:
父啊,请赐予我清洁的心,让我完全谦卑地来服侍和赞美你!

Prayer for the day: Father, give me purity of heart that in true humility I may serve and praise You.
