眼中的刺 [Speck in the Eye]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音7章5节:“你这假冒为善的人!先去掉自己眼中的梁木,然后才能看得清楚,去掉你弟兄眼中的刺。”

今日默想:我们先去掉爱好批评的恶欲,抛弃那种不敬虔的挑剔恶习,然后才能看清楚事实真相。我们以什么样的标准来看待别人,别人也以什么样的标准加倍看待我们。我们的眼睛所要看得清楚的,不是别人眼中的“刺”,而是如何“去掉”刺。要去掉别人眼中的刺,要紧的不是把那刺看得真切,而是使我们自己在别人的眼中显得可爱,自然而然就会把那根刺化除了。自己先受主的对付,然后才能对付别人。我们对人真实的帮助,乃是根据我们亲身的经历。十字架的功课总是先从自己身上开始的。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 7:5 :“Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Today’s Meditation: We first need to remove the desire to criticise and abandon the habit of hypocrite in order to see the truth clearly. Others will treat us with the exact same standard we used to treat them. We should be learning “how” to remove the speck instead of noticing the “speck” in others’ eye. We need to be loveable in others’ eye before we remove the speck from their eye by nature. It is unnecessary to take the speck too seriously. We first need to confront with the Lord before confronting with others. The truest help of ours to others is from our own experiences. The lesson of the cross always start from us.
