标杆人生 第16天 最重要的事

16

What Matters Most

第十六天 最重要的事

No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

1 Corinthians 13:3b (Msg)

无论我说什么,信什么或做什么,

 若没有爱,我便一无所有。

 (哥林多前书十三章3节,Msg)

Love means living the way God commanded us to live. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is this: Live a life of love.

2 John 1:6 (NCV)

爱就是遵照神命令我们的方式去生活。

 正如你们从起初所听见的命令:在爱中生活。  (约翰二书-章6节,NCV)

Life is all about love.

生命全关乎爱。

Because God is love, the most important lesson he wants you to learn on earth is how to love. It is in loving that we are most like him, so love is the foundation of every command he has given us: "The whole Law can be summed up in this one command: `Love others as you love yourself."

因为神是爱,所以神最盼望我们在世上学习的功课就是如何去爱。当我们去爱的时候便最像他,因此爱是神给我们所有命令的根基:「因为全律法都总结在一条命令:爱人如己」。

Learning to love unselfishly is not an easy task. It runs counter to our self-centered nature. That's why we're given a lifetime to learn it. Of course, God wants us to love everyone, but he is Particularly concerned that we learn to love others in his family. As we've already seen, this is the second purpose for your life. Peter tells us, "Show special love for God's people." Paul echoes this sentiment: "When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it. But we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers."

学习不自私地去爱不是易事,因为这违反我们自我中心的本性,所以要穷一生之功去学习。神要我们爱每一个人,但他特别要我们爱神家里的人,这是我们人生的第二个目的。彼得说:「特别要爱信主的弟兄姊妹。」保罗回应这个意见说:「我们一有机会帮助别人就该做,但是对于在神家中的信徒,更应加以特别的照顾。」

Why does God insist that we give special love and attention to other believers? Why do they get priority in loving? Because God wants his family to be known for its love more than anything else. Jesus said our love for each other-not our doctrinal beliefs-is our greatest witness to the world. He said, "Your strong love for each other will prove to the world that you are my

disciples."

为什么神坚持我们要特别关爱其他信徒呢?为什么我们要先爱他们呢?因为神盼望他的家以爱见称。耶稣说我们向世界最好的见证,不是我们信仰的教条,而是我们彼此相爱。他说:「你们若有彼此相爱的心,众人因此就认出你们是我的门徒了。」

In heaven we will enjoy God's family forever, but first we have some tough work to do here on earth to prepare ourselves for an eternity of loving. God trains us by giving us "family responsibilities," and the foremost of these is to practice loving each other.

在天堂我们永远享有神的家,但首先我们在世上却需要努力为那永恒的爱准备自己。神给我们一些「家庭责任」来训练我们,其中最重要的是学习彼此相爱。

God wants you to be in regular, close fellowship with other believers so you can develop the skill of loving. Love cannot be learned in isolation. You have to be around people-irritating, imperfect, frustrating people. Through fellowship we learn three important truths.

神要我们与其他信徒经常紧密地交往,来学习爱的技巧。与人疏离无法学习爱,你必须处在人际当中——与一些令人厌烦、不完美、令人沮丧的人相处才能学会。透过团契生活,我们学习到三个重要的真理。

THE BEST USE OF LIFE ISLOVE

爱是人生最好的应用

Love should be your top priority, primary objective, and greatest ambition. Love is not a good part of your life; it's the most important part. The Bible says, "Let love be your greatest aim." It's not enough to say, "One of the things I want in life is to be loving," as if it's in your top ten

list. Relationships must have priority in your life above everything else. Why?

爱应该是你最优先的次序、最基本的目标、最伟大的志向。爱不是你生命中「很好」的一部分,而是「最重要」的部分。圣经说:「让爱成为你最大的目标。」只说「我人生目标之一是爱」是不够的,这听起来好像爱只不过是你十大目标之一。关系应该是你生命中的首要,为什么

Life without love is really worthless.

生命没有爱就无价值

Paul makes this point: "No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love."Often we act as if relationships are something to be squeezed into our schedule. We talk about finding time for our children or making time for people in our lives. That gives the impression that relationships are just a part of our lives along with many other tasks. But God says relationships are what life is all about.

保罗指出: 「无论我说什么、信什么或做什么,若没有爱,我便一无所有。」我们往往把关系当作可有可无。我们会有找时间陪孩子或挪时间见朋友这样的说法。这听起来,令人 觉得关系只是生活中诸多行事历的一部分。但是神却说,关系是生命最重要的。

Four of the Ten Commandments deal with our relationship to God while the other six deal with our relationships with people. But all ten are about relationships! Later, Jesus summarized what matters most to God in two statements: love God and love people. He said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart....' This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important.- `Love your neighbor as yourself. 'All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."' After learning to love God (worship), learning to love others is the second purpose of your life.

十诫中有四诫论及我们与神的关系,其余六诫则是我们与人之间的关系,但全部十诫都是关于关系!耶稣把神最看重的事总结为「爱神」与「爱人」。他说:「你要尽心、尽性、尽意爱主一你的神。这是诫命中的第一,且是最大的。其次也相仿,就是要爱人如己。这两条诫命是律法和先知一切道理的总纲。」学习爱神(敬拜),然后学习爱其他人,这是你人生第二个目的

Relationships, not achievements or the acquisition of things, are what matters most in life. So why do we allow our relationships to get the short end of the stick? When our schedules become overloaded, we start skimming relationally, cutting back on giving the time, energy, and attention that loving relationships require. What's most important to God is displaced by what's urgent.

生命里最重要的不是成就或财富,而是关系。那么,为什么我们往往允许我们的关系被牺牲呢?当我们忙碌时,便省略关系,减少花时间,精神、精力在爱的关系上。神认为最重要的事已被其他紧急的事代替了。

Busyness is a great enemy of relationships. We become preoccupied with making a living, doing our work, paying bills, and accomplishing goals as if these tasks are the point of life. They are not. The point of life is learning to love-God and people. Life minus love equals zero.

忙碌是关系最大的敌人,我们的生活常被生计、工作、账单、目标挤得满满,好似这些事情是人生的重点,其实人生的重点是学习去爱——爱神和爱人!人生减去爱等于零。

Love will last forever.

爱永远长存

Another reason God tells us to make love our top priority is that it is eternal: "These three things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.”

神要我们将爱放在首位的另一个原因是爱永远长存。「如今常有的有信,有望,有爱这三样,其中最大的是爱。」

Love leaves a legacy. How you treated other people, not your wealth or accomplishments, is

the most enduring impact you can leave on earth. As Mother Teresa said, "It's not what you do, but how much love you put into it that matters." Love is the secret of a lasting heritage.

爱能存留后代;你如何待人,而不是你的成就或财富,是你能存留在地上最持久的影响。德蕾莎修女说:「重要的不是你做了什么事,而是你为这事付出多少爱。」爱是永远常存的秘诀。

I have been at the bedside of many people in their final moments, when they stand on the edge of eternity, and I have never heard anyone say, "Bring me my diplomas! I want to look at them one more time. Show me my awards, my medals, that gold watch I was given." When life on earth is ending, people don't surround themselves with objects. What we want around us is people-people we love and have relationships with.In our final moments we all realize that relationships are what life is all about. Wisdom is learning that truth sooner rather than later. Don't wait until you're on your deathbed to figure out that nothing matters more.

我陪伴过许多人度过他们生命最后的一刻,当他们面临永恒的边缘时,我从来没有听过一个人说:「拿我的证书来,我想多看它一眼。取我从前所得的奖状、金牌、金手表来给我。」当生命即将终结时,人们要的不是被东西包围,而是被人包围一我们所爱的人、与我们有关系的人。在人生的最后一刻,我们都了解,关系才是人生命的全部。懂得尽快学会这真理的人便是智者。莫等到临终时,才明白关系才是最重要的。

We will be evaluated on our love.

神根据我们如何去爱评估我们

The third reason to make learning to love the goal of your

life is that it is what we will be evaluated on in eternity. One of the ways God measures spiritual maturity is by the quality of your relationships. In heaven God won't say, "Tell me about your career, your bank account, and your hobbies." Instead he will review how you treated other people, particularly those in need. Jesus said the way to love him is to love his family and care for their practical needs: "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'

将学习去爱当作人生目标的第三个理由是,神会根据我们如何去爱而作出评估。神评估我们属灵成熟度的方法之一,就是根据我们关系的品质。在天堂,神不会说:「告诉我你的职业、你银行的存款,以及你的嗜好。」他会检视你如何对人,特别是那些有需要的人。耶稣说,爱他就是爱他的家人,并照顾他们实际的需要。「这些事你们既做在我这弟兄中一个最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。」

When you transfer into eternity, you will leave everything else behind. All you're taking with you is your character. That's why the Bible says, "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love."

当你进入永恒,你必须留下一切,所能带走的就是你的品格特质。这就是为什么圣经说: 「惟一重要的便是经由爱表达出来的信心。」

Knowing this, I suggest that when you wake up every morning, you kneel by your bed, or sit

on the edge of it, and pray this: "God, whether I get anything else done today, I want to make sure that I spend time loving you and loving other people-because that's what life is all about. I don't want to waste this day." Why should God give you another day if you're going to waste it?

既然如此,我建议你每天清早起来,在床边跪下或坐著祷告说:「神啊,不管我今天成就了什么,我要确定我花时间爱你并爱人,因为这是生命最重要的,我不想浪费了今天。j若你会将其浪费掉,神何必要多给你一天呢?

最能表达爱的方式是付出时间

The importance of things can be measured by how much time we are willing to invest in them. The more time you give to something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you. If you want to know a person's priorities, just look at how they use their time.

事情的重要与否,可由我们愿意花多少时间在上面来衡量。你花时间愈多,就显示那件事情对你的重要性和价值愈多。你若想知道一个人看重什么事情,只要看看他们怎么使用时间就知道了。

Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

时间是你最珍贵的礼物,因为你只有一生那么多的时间。你可以多赚金钱,但不能多赚时间。因此当你付出时间给某人,乃是将你生命的一部分送给他,而那是绝对要不回来的,因为时间就是生命。所以,时间是你所能给人最大的礼物。

It is not enough just to say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. "My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action."i2 Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is "T-I-M-E."

单单口头上说「关系很重要」并不足够,还必须花时间在关系上来证明:只有言语是没有用的。「我们相爱,不要只在言语和舌头上,总要在行为和诚实上。」 关系需要花时间与努力,而表达爱最好的方式是付出时间!

The essence of love is not what we think or do or provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves. Men, in particular, often don't understand this. Many have said to me, "I don't understand my wife and kids. I provide everything they need. What more could they want?" They want you! Your eyes, your ears, your time, your attention, your presence, your focus-your time. Nothing can take the place of that.

爱的真谛不是我们想或做或供应别人,而是将自己给出去多少?男人大多不明白这一点,很多人对我说:「我真不懂我太太、小孩,我供应他们一切所需,他们到底还要什么?」他们要的是你啊!你的眼睛、你的耳朵、你的时间、你的关心、你的同在、你的专注!这是没有任何东西可以替代的。

The most desired gift of love is not diamonds or roses or chocolate. It is focused attention. Love concentrates so intently on another that you forget yourself at that moment. Attention says, "I value you enough to give you my most precious asset-my time." Whenever you give your time, you are making a sacrifice, and sacrifice is the essence of love. Jesus modeled this: `Be full of love

for others, following the example of Christ who loved you and gave Himself to God as a sacrifice to take away your sins."

最令人渴慕的爱的礼物不是钻石、玫瑰或巧克力,而是专注。爱是如此的凝聚专注在另一个人身上,令你在那一刻忘了自己的存在。专注等于说:「你是如此珍贵,以至于我不惜将我最宝贵的资产——我的时间——给你。」每当你付出时间,你就是作出牺牲,而牺牲就是爱的真谛。耶稣为我们作了榜样:「要凭爱心行事,正如基督爱我们,为我们舍了自己,当作馨香的供物,除去我们的罪。」

Relationships are what life is all about.

The greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving. "God so loved the world that he gave...." Love means giving up-yielding my preferences, comfort, goals, security, money, energy, or time for the benefit of someone else.

你可以「付出」而没有「爱」,但你不能「爱」而不「付出」。「神爱世人,甚至赐下...」,爱意谓放弃,为别人的好处放弃自己的喜好、舒适、目标、安全感、钱财、精力或时间。

THE BEST TIME TO LOVE IS NOW

去爱的最佳时刻就是现在

Sometimes procrastination is a legitimate response to a trivial task. But because love is what matters most, it takes top priority. The Bible stresses this repeatedly. It says, "Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone." "Use every chance you have for doing good." "Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbor to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now."

拖延有时是应付琐碎事的最好方法,但因为爱是最重要的,所以要立刻去做。圣经一再强调说: 「有了机会就当向众人行善」,「利用每一个机会行善」、「你手若有行善的力量,不可推辞,就当向那应得的人施行。你那里若有现成的,不可对邻舍说:去吧,明天再来,我必给你」。

Why is now the best time to express love? Because you don't know how long you will have the opportunity. Circumstances change. People die. Children grow up. You have no guarantee of tomorrow. If you want to express love, you had better do it now

Knowing that one day you will stand before God, here are some questions you need to consider: How will you explain those times when projects or things were more important to you than people? Who do you need to start spending more time with? What do you need to cut out of your schedule to make that possible? What sacrifices do you need to make?

为什么现在是你表达爱的最佳时刻呢?因为你不知道还有多少机会。环境会变,人会死去,孩子会长大,你不能保证有明天。你若要表达爱,最好现在就行动。既然知道有一天要站在神的面前,你便要认真考虑以下的问题:你要如何解释那些你看重工作企划案或某些事情胜过人的时候?谁是你需要与之多花时间的人?你要从你的日程表上删去哪些事使之可能?你需要做什么牺牲?

The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.

爱是人生最好的应用,最能表达爱的方法是付出时间,去爱最好的时刻就是现在。
