Bible教會我的30堂課|30句聖經英文金句短句

雖然尚且無法深入地了解聖經的全部,但有些說法很讓我寬慰。寬慰的是:人類不需要輪迴,沒有來生,如果你夠善良,到了天堂,那裡沒有惡人惡語只會有善類。

 

迷惘的是,上帝希望我做什麼?把時間用在哪裡才是對的?苦思很久以後,發現答案是德與善。德是無私(自利以外的大愛和正直等等)。最終,人生的智慧不過是柯文哲說的那句經典名言:心存善念,盡力而為。(雖然近期柯文哲好像因為發言多,而容易被斷章取義而遭批判。並不是他樂愛發言,有他就有收視率,所以媒體樂愛訪問他。是言多必失,幾乎不可免的)

 

後來才會懂得為什麼很多人會強調初衷,因為初衷通常都是相對無私,或自我的比例偏低。但人走著走著,有時候受到外界的影響而使軸心偏掉,多少會的。

 

認識Christianity 這段時間,我特別喜歡Bible裡面的一個想法,就是當你不安恐懼的時候,把你的anxiety交給上帝。我並不是一個特別聰明的人,可是我擅長觀察,而我特別相信God’s arrangment 這件事。

 

1. Fear not, for I am with you. (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)

有過恐懼的時候,但我知道上帝在,所以不需要害怕。有過心裡有委屈的時候,但無法說也不知道該不該說,但知道上帝知道全部的故事,所以心裡就不委屈。

The phrase ” do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live every single day fearlessly.

 

2. [B]e not dismayed […] I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)

認真想,這一兩年來,我得到很多我原本非常想要但不敢奢望的。當然,我還是一個貪心的人,心理有其他想要但不敢去想去盼望的願望清單。

 

我一度是一個非常樂觀或者過度樂觀的人,或許是某些意外把我的那份樂觀吃掉了。可是,很多時候很多東西是無法用科學解釋的。你看過你見過,你就會願意相信。或許,現在的我潛意識被一份怯懦卡住了, 現階段的我應該更樂觀一點點。認真反省,悲觀的潛意識會吃掉勇氣和積極。

 

3. Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

4..“Mere talk leads only to poverty” (Proverbs 14:23).

5.For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7 ESV)

認真的說,真的是這一年來,才踏實易是到自律是人生美好的關鍵性元素。人的劣根性就是不痛就不改。非要痛了才肯學乖。這樣,上帝也很無奈或很頭痛吧。

 

6.The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn. (Isaiah 61:1-8 ESV)

這句話讓我想到醫病要先醫心。從發現笑和positive emotion 會影響糖尿病的血糖濃度開始,我才意識到原來我們的emotion會影響身體的發炎指數和血糖指數,然後就會直接影響我們的健康。

 

7.The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me [….] Do not forsake the work of your hands. (Psalm 138:8)★

8.Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1)★

9.For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)★

我有過一個悲傷的晚上,然後我對上帝傾吐我心裡的悶,然後當晚做了一個無與倫比的美夢,一個太美好而我無法說服自己可能實踐成真的夢。

 

10.“Each person was judged according to what he had done” (Revelation 20:13).

11“All hard work brings a profit.” (Proverbs 14:23).

12. For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.(Philippians 4:11-13) 

回頭看,我有意識到即便得到那個階段想要的目標,那個有條件的快樂不會太持久,因為你到了下一個關卡,會有下一個關卡的責任和不同需要處理的問題。而乍看是壞運氣的事件,也往往沒有絕對的不好。

 

13.The Lord is my shepherd [….] He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. (Psalm 23:1-6 ESV)

我們原本想要的,可能並不是真的適合我們或該走的路。God has a better plan for us. 回頭去看,才會明白這些。如果不是因為____,不會得到________________。

 

14.The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning (Lamentations 3:21-24 ESV)

15.Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. Hbrought them out of darkness and the shadow of death […] thank the Lord for his steadfast love. (Psalm 107:13-16 )

16.Under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:4-6 ESV)

17.I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fear (Psalm 34:4 ESV)

18.Learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)

19.But whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster. (Proverbs 1:33 ESV)

20.You have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith (1 Peter 1:3-9 ESV)

21.Your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, and you fear continually all the day because of the wrath of the oppressor( Isaiah 51:12-15 ESV)

22.who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. [….] If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3-7 ESV)

 

23.The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spiritMany are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. (Psalm 34:18-19 ESV)

24.  I will fear no evil, for you are with me. (Psalm 23:1-6 ESV)

25.Love one another with brotherly affection.( Romans 12:9-16 ESV)

這一點我是覺得比較難。我一直覺得寬恕和原諒對我來說是人生最難的功課,但我有做得比以前好了。有人說時間無法讓傷痕痊癒,有人說會。

我的個人觀察是:有的時間點,你可能剛經歷一個辛苦的事,旁人或自己會推測你應該心理難受,可是當事人偏偏心理不覺得苦甚至睡得很好。也會有人在人生的一些時間點得到了原本得到了,卻沒有過去快樂,或甚至有過去的陰霾突然出現打擾。對於這些矛盾,我自己的理解和觀察是當一個人心理的溫暖很大的時候,那些negative的東西很自然就不會出現更不需要去克服,因為你就感受不到。

26.Be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.( Romans 12:9-16 ESV)

很多人大概無法理解為什麼要禱告。我過去也是。可是我發現當你困惑或有把你的anxiety託付給上帝,真的很有用,在心裡說完對上帝的禱告說完就可以好好睡覺。

 

27.. The Lord is near to all who call on him [….] he also hears their cry and saves them.( Psalm 145:18-19 ESV )

28 Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good[….] be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.( Romans 12:9-16 ESV).

 

是時候戒掉政治和時事文了。一年來,寫了太多太多,好像已經足夠了。有一種責任已盡的感覺。好像冥冥之中必須往下一個道路走,不能再停在這裡。

 

沒有做該做的事,無法真正舒坦。其實責任盡了,心裡才會踏實。

29. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working( James 5:16 ESV)

30. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.( Romans 12:9-16 ESV)

 

司馬儀

I tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public. Situated in a global capitalist society, the core spirit of capitalism disseminates a reward-oriented idea. What is the underlying causality of the universal bullying phenomenon on the worldwide scale? As to Finland’s anti-bullying program “Kiva,” what do you reckon? Self-serving politicians gross over their wickedness by law or something and they are talented at outwitting the crowds and working for their own advantage with flat-out lies.
