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).

中文灵修:家庭需要真爱

爱是永不止息。(林前13:8)

对于一个充满喜乐的基督徒家庭来说最重要的是进行爱的操练,建立在欲望和物质基础上的家庭最终会走向灭亡,爱是把家庭紧紧凝聚在一起的粘合剂。真爱要包含属灵的元素,它体现在彼此忠诚,相互尊重和理解上。爱强调的是对每个家庭成员的重要责任,这个责任同时伴随着荣耀和奖赏。关于爱,圣经上说:“正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。”神是如何爱教会的呢?即使教会出现差错,甚至软弱,神仍然爱它。真爱不会消失,即使你有性格缺点,身体缺陷,心理怪癖,真爱仍然存在。真爱是永恒不朽的,除了真爱,没有什么可以给家庭带来安全感。

今日祷告:
主啊,求您帮助我,垂听我的祷告,让我学会关爱我的家人!奉主的名求,阿门!

English:The Home

Love never faileth . . . —1 Corinthians 13:8

The first essential for a happy Christian home is that love must be practiced. Homes that are built on animal attraction and lust are destined to crumble and fall. Love is the cohesive force that holds the family together. True love contains an element of spiritual mystery. It embodies loyalty, reverence, and understanding. Love imposes a tremendous responsibility on all members of a family, but it is a responsibility accompanied by glorious rewards. “Love,” says the Bible, “even as Christ . . . loved the church, and gave Himself for it.” How did Christ love the church? He loved it despite its faults, its mistakes, and its weaknesses. True love does not fail. It loves despite personality defects, physical blemishes, and mental quirks. Love is deep, abiding, and eternal. Nothing can bring a sense of security into the home as true love can.

Prayer for the day:
Help me today, to listen, to love and care for my loved ones with a heart that is made sensitive by You, Jesus. In Jesus' name,Amen!
