2/27/2022 Will Not Do Right? ~Rev. Bernie Chung

Where have our children learned to say, “That's not fair!” In reality, they have learned a lot from adults, especially from their parents as they develop their thinking and character.

Imperceptibly, children imitate adult habits and behaviors. So when children say “That's not fair!”, they probably are copying our response to a particular situation. When they hear “that’s not fair!” from someone else, they may put us in awe by replying “That’s life!”—like grownups.

Life indeed doesn’t seem fair sometimes. Unfortunate things happen to good people, and bad people seem to live good lives. People worthy of praise are often forgotten and ignored, while those without merit get recognition. These types of life contradictions have prompted King Solomon to lament with emotion: “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless!” The things we’ve pursued successfully early in life may yield some degree of satisfaction at first. But after a lifetime seeking things of temporal value, the enjoyment and excitement of yearning have disappeared altogether. Youth, love, career, fame and fortune, etc. are all unreliable, short lived, and fleeting entities. At the end, these pursuits cannot fulfill people's hearts. Life is full of unpredictable variables. “Void begets of void” often is the reality of life.

Genesis 18:25 says, “Far be it from you (God) to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?” The most important thing in life is to truly know God, The Holy One, and to fear Him. Brothers and sisters, let’s continue to trust God and submit to him, and to do what he has considered the right things. Seek God’s wisdom and reconcile our relationship with him. May we enjoy his presence that is full of peace and joy each day. Amen!

作為信徒,我們被神呼召來講述真理、尋求真理和實踐真理。畢竟,耶穌說:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約翰福音 8:32)。但誰才是真理?答案就是耶穌。在約翰福音 14 章 6 節,「耶穌說我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」耶穌在每一方面都是真理的代表和化身。因為耶穌就是真理,祂也向我們實淺了如何尋求、講述和實踐真理的榜樣。 在寫給歌羅西教會的信中,保羅和提摩太熱

主耶穌在馬太福音 5:23-24節說:「所以,你在祭壇上獻禮物的時候,若想起弟兄向你懷怨,就把禮物留在壇前,先去同弟兄和好,然後來獻禮物。」換言之與人和睦相處比在教會事奉或敬拜奉獻更為重要。但是,如果我們的「鄰舍」真的對我們有意見,而我們認為是不合情理、怎麼辦呢?我們採取解決分歧之前,會忍讓到什麼程度呢? 在三日前的會員大會中,有一位弟兄提起馬太福音 18章,15-17 節是說:「倘若你的弟兄得罪
