总以智慧为是 [Justify Wisdom]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音11章19节:“人子来了,也吃也喝,人又说祂是贪食好酒的人,是税吏和罪人的朋友。但智慧之子,总以智慧为是。”

今日默想:从犹太人的眼光看,“不吃不喝”是错,“也吃也喝”也是错。当人有自己的看法时,不能接受别人的行为,别人无论怎么作,在他看来都是错的。基督教不是“不吃不喝”,基督教也不是“也吃也喝”;基督教不是注重人外面的作法,乃是注重人里面的存心。罗马书14章17节告诉我们,上帝的国,不在乎吃喝,只在乎公义、和平,并圣灵中的喜乐。智慧之子懂得持定基督的人,是最有智慧的人。有属灵看见的人,和真心敬畏上帝的人,才能认识主的行径。信徒所要竭力追求的,不是道理、教训、理由、经历,乃是主自己。我们追求的不是主的恩典,乃是赐恩的主。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 11:19 :“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebiber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children.”

Today’s Meditation: From the angle of Jews, both ‘neither eating nor drinking’ and ‘eating and drinking’ are wrong. When one has his own perspective of viewing things, the perspective of others always seem to be wrong. Christianity is neither ‘neither eating nor drinking’ nor ‘eating and drinking’. Christianity focuses on the inner side of a man. Romans 14:17 tells us that, the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The wise one knows how to hold on to Christ. Only those who have spiritual sight and worship God with fear can understand the way of God. We should be questing after Lord only rather than truths, teachings, reasons and experiences. We must thirst for the Lord who blesses, but not the graces of Lord.
