260靈修 Feb22, 2013 馬可福音 Mark 4:21-25

第四章
21 耶穌又對他們說:「人拿燈來,豈是要放在斗底下,床底下,不
放在燈臺上嗎? 22 因為掩藏的事,沒有不顯出來的;隱瞞的事,
沒有不露出來的。 23 有耳可聽的,就應當聽!」 24 又說:「你
們所聽的要留心。你們用甚麼量器量給人,也必用甚麼量器量給你
們,並且要多給你們。 25 因為有的,還要給他;沒有的,連他所
有的也要奪去。」

默想:
1.耶穌在馬太福音六章3-4節,教導我們:「你施捨的時候,不
要叫左手知道右手所做的,要叫你施捨的事行在暗中。你父在
暗中察看,必然報答你」。

2.但是耶穌在這段經文中卻講到,我們暗中所做的一切,不論是
好是壞,都要顯露出來。「不張揚自己的善行和品德」,和「
我們在暗中所做一切掩藏、隱瞞的事,都被顯露出來」,這兩
件事有什麼關連?這對我們不將善行張揚出來,有什麼幫助?

3.繼續昨天的默想,甘心地作主默默無聞的門徒,求主幫助我,
「不要叫左手知道右手所做的」。

禱告與筆錄:
繼續安靜在神面前聆聽神,並將你的的思想、問題、觸動你的字、
詞、圖畫,或是與神的禱告,寫在你的靈程筆記簿上面。

今日箴言:5:1-2
1 我兒,要留心我智慧的話語,側耳聽我聰明的言辭, 2 為要使
你謹守謀略,嘴唇保存知識。

 

Mark 4
21He said to them, "Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed?
Instead, don't you put it on its stand?
22For whatever is hidden is meant to be
disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.
23If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."
24"Consider carefully what you hear,"
he continued. "With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even
more.25Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he
has will be taken from him."

Meditation
1. In Matthew 6:3-4, Jesus taught us: “But when you give to the needy, do
not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your
giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in
secret, will reward you.”

2. However, in this paragraph, it is talking about all of our secrets – good
and bad – being revealed. What is the connection between keeping
good deeds and qualities, and having all of our secrets revealed? Does
this motivate us to be quiet about the good works that we do?

3. Continue the meditation from yesterday to be willing to be a quiet
disciple of Jesus. Lord, help me so that I will “not let (my) left hand
know what (my) right hand is doing” (Matt 6:3).

Prayer & Journaling: On your prayer journal, as you listen to God, write down a few
thoughts, questions, words, names, drawings, or anything that has come to your mind
during this time.

Proverbs for Today: 5:1-2
1My son, be attentive to my wisdom;
incline your ear to my understanding,
2that you may keep discretion,
and your lips may guard knowledge.
