爱的真谛(四) [The Meaning of Love (4)]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书13章7节:“凡事包容,凡事相信,凡事盼望,凡事忍耐。”

今日默想:彼得前书4章8节说到,爱能遮掩许多的罪。我们常会在无意中把别人的短处揭露来。看见别人的弱点,不是把他暴露,乃是将他遮盖。若我们活在爱中,就必会谨慎言行。信徒由于对上帝有深切的认识,知道祂的信实和大能,相信祂在任何人事物上都有美好的旨意,因而默然地等候上帝的工作。我们不把盼望放在别人和自己身上,因为我们的盼望乃在于上帝。为着软弱、失败的肢体需长久祷告、等候和忍耐,直到上帝拯救他们。爱是舍己的,爱是为人的,就必脱不开忍耐,所以在第四节里说“恒久忍耐”。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 13:7 :“bears all things, believes all things, hope all things, endures all things.”

Today’s Meditation: 1 Peter 4:8 tells that love will cover a multitude of sins. We are often found to expose others’ weaknesses. We actually should not be exposing their weaknesses. We will be more cautious if we live in love. As one knows God, he will know the faithfulness and strength of His. He believes that God has the best on everyone. Thus, he waits for the works of God. We do not place hope on others or us for our hope is at God. We need to pray patiently for the weak and failed until the day God saved them. Love is self-denying. Love is for others. Thus, love cannot be separated from endurance. That is why verse 4 says ‘suffers long’.
