《平衡的智慧(TheJugglingAct)》讲的是工作、信仰和生活的平衡。期中有一部分在说的是表里如一、做自己、真实生活的重要性。圣经里说我们要做盐做光: 马太福音 5:13 ”你們是世上的鹽。鹽若失了味,怎能叫它再鹹呢?以後無用,不過丟在外麵,被人踐踏了。 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. 5:14 你們是世上的光。城造在山上,是不能隱藏的。 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 马可福音 9:50 鹽本是好的,若失了味,可用什麼叫它再鹹呢?你們裡頭應當有鹽,彼此和睦。” "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other." 其实就是在讲不要因为撒旦的引诱而丢弃了自己纯良的本性。昨天一整天都跟瑞典姐妹Grace在一起,她说一定要做自己,只有真实地面对自己,按照天行做自己喜欢且适合的工作,人生才能过得幸福。 我很喜欢的心理学科普作者Steve Shi说过: "这个世界所承诺的所有美好——亲密、幸福、满足、轻松、如意,全部都建立在一个重要的前提上,就是你真实地对待自己。 坦诚地活着,感受到丰富的情绪体验,既脆弱又坚强。" 想想自己为了容易就业,还强迫自己学编程也是醉了。长期来看,人还是应该把自己喜欢且山-擅长的事情发展成事业,只有这样才能走得远。 昨天Grace提到,脑神经科学家证实,长期怀有负面消极思想的人,脑神经会形成新的连结,导致消极情绪和思想得到强化,以近路(shortcut)的形式固定下来。圣经对基督徒的要求是: 腓立比书 4:8 弟兄們,我還有未儘的話。凡是真實的,可敬的,公義的,清潔的,可愛的,有美名的。若有什麼德行,若有什麼稱讚,這些事你們都要思念。 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. 加拉太书 5:22 聖靈所結的果子,就是仁愛,喜樂,和平,忍耐,恩慈,良善,信實, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 5:23 溫柔,節製。這樣的事,冇有律法禁止。 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 5:24 凡屬基督耶穌的人,是已經把肉體,連肉體的邪情私欲,同釘在十字架上了。 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 5:25 我們若是靠聖靈得生,就當靠聖靈行事。 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 5:26 不要貪圖虛名,彼此惹氣,互相嫉妒。 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. 彼得后书 1:5 正因這緣故,你們要分外的殷勤。有了信心,又要加上德行。有了德行,又要加上知識。 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 1:6 有了知識,又要加上節製。有了節製,又要加上忍耐。有了忍耐,又要加上虔敬。 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 1:7 有了虔敬,又要加上愛弟兄的心。有了愛弟兄的心,又要加上愛眾人的心 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 1:8 你們若充充足足的有這幾樣,就必使你們在認識我們的主耶穌基督上,不至於閒懶不結果子了。 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1:9 人若冇有這幾樣,就是眼瞎,隻看見近處的,忘了他舊日的罪已經得了潔淨。 But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins. 1:10 所以弟兄們,應當更加殷勤,使你們所蒙的恩召和揀選堅定不移。你們若行這幾樣,就永不失腳。 Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 1:11 這樣,必叫你們豐豐富富的,得以進入我們主救主耶穌基督永遠的國。 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 以弗所书 4:25 所以你們要棄絕謊言,各人與鄰舍說實話,因為我們是互相為肢體。 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 以弗所书 5:19 當用詩章、頌詞、靈歌彼此對說,口唱心和地讚美主。 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord 从这个角度来说,悲观厌世也是罪,是神所反对的。
