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:真正的喜乐(2020.06.25)

主说“谁是那忠心有见识的管家……”——路12:42

And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward . . . —Luke 12:42

人们拥有财富这本身并没有错,但是圣经警醒我们金钱买不来幸福;金钱买不来真正的快乐;买不到内心真正的平安;用金钱更无法进入神的国。通常情况下财富是进入神国的绊脚石。金钱使我们远离神。当你为自己的私欲而不是为神的荣耀使用钱财的时候,钱财在我们手里会成为腐败。财富不能成为神的替代品,如果神给你的财富多于你的邻舍,要奉献给基督。要清楚你只是钱财的管家,神给你这些,将来有一天你花费的每一分钱都要给神交账。国税局记录的关于你的消费账单,远远不及神的那份账单。

It is not wrong for men to possess riches. But the Bible warns that money cannot buy happiness! Money cannot buy true pleasure. Money cannot buy peace of heart. And money certainly cannot buy entrance into the Kingdom of God. Often money is a hindrance to these things. Money takes our minds off God. Riches, when used selfishly rather than for the glory of God, tend to corrupt in our hands. Money cannot be a substitute for God. If God has given you more wealth than your neighbors, dedicate it to Christ. Realize that you are only a steward of that which God has given you and some day you will have to give an account of every penny you have spent. The Internal Revenue Service wants a record of how you spend your money, but that is nothing compared to the books God is keeping.

今日祷告:
天父,我所有的一切都是你赐予的,我愿意成为忠心的管家。让我时常跟随你的引导,合理利用你所交托给我的金钱!

Father, I would be a faithful steward of all You have given to me. Make me constantly aware of Your leading so I may wisely spend any money with which I have been entrusted.
