不求 [Did Not Ask]

书卷:雅各书(新约)
作者:雅各

雅各书4章2节:“你们贪恋,还是得不着;你们杀害嫉妒,又斗殴争战,也不能得。你们得不着,是因为你们不求。”

今日默想:人越贪求,便越会引发明争暗斗,结果反而就越一无所得。贪得无厌是人类的劣根性,人们为要达到这种欲望,就不择手段的去争取他们所要求的,以致嫉妒、杀害,又斗殴、争战,结果也得不着。一个心中充满了私欲的人,必忽略祷告。雅各书1章5节提醒我们,上帝是厚赐与众人也不斥责人的上帝。祂愿意厚赐与众人,可惜人不祷告。上帝的丰富就因人的不求而受到限制。多信徒虽然有祷告的行为,却没有祷告的目标。上帝不听一般、拢统的祷告,惟有专一、明确的祷告,才能蒙上帝垂听,帮助我们解决所面对的难处。

Book: James (New Testament)
Author: James

James 4:2 :“You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war, yet you do not have because you do not ask.”

Today’s Meditation: As we lust for more, there will be more fight and we end up with nothing. It is a rude habit of human of being greedy. We often do whatever we need to achieve our desire even though it has to involve covet, murder, fight and war. We often end up with nothing we want. One whose heart is filled with desire often ignore praying. James 1:5 reminds us that God gives to all liberally and without reproach. He is willing to give but we did not pray. The abundance in God is thus being restricted because we do not pray. Many of us though pray but prayed aimlessly. God does not listen to general prayers. He seeks for concentrated and clear prayers. Only such prayers are accepted by Him and thus our problems can be solved.
