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:诚实

你所喜爱的,是内里诚实。你在我隐密处,必使我得智慧。——詩篇51:6

圣经教导我们诚实是一种纯正的行为。我们的一举一动都应该是诚实的。基督因着文士和法利赛人的伪善行为而蔑视他们。在登山宝训中,他也谴责一切虚情假意的奉献、祈祷和禁食。我们在讲述过往成就时,更应该诚实。上帝并不是要求我们贬低事实,这样做本是就不是诚实的;但他也不希望我们在思想、言语上过高地评价自己的成就或天分。任何违反明显事实的事情便是谎言。

今日祷告:
主啊,事实很容易被人意掩盖。求你赐下智慧,让我可以在生命的每一步中都能持守全然的信实。
奉主的名求,阿们!

Daily Devotion:Be Truthful

You deserve honesty from the heart; yes, utter sincerity and truthfulness. Oh, give me this wisdom.—Psalm 51:6 (TLB)

The Bible teaches that purity of conduct includes truthfulness. The Bible teaches that we should be truthful in our representation of ourselves. With what scorn Christ denounced the hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees! In the Sermon on the Mount He rebuked all hypocritical giving, praying, and fasting. We should also be truthful in speaking of our past achievements in our particular vocation. God does not ask us to understate the facts-that might even be untruthfulness-but neither does He want us to overrate our achievements or our gifts, either in thought or in speech. A lie is anything contrary to the naked truth.

Prayer for the day:
It is so easy, Lord, to embellish the truth. Give me Your wisdom to be completely honest in every phase of my life.
In Jesus' name,Amen!
