审问 [Judgement]

书卷:传道书(旧约)
作者:所罗门

传道书12章14节:“因为人所做的事,连一切隐藏的事,无论是善是恶,上帝都必审问。”

今日默想:传道者谆谆训诲,最后仍要人注意他已在书中不断提醒读者的话:人所作的,无论善恶,上帝必审问。但加多了一行字:“连一切隐藏的事”都会带到上帝前,听祂审问,无可逃避。这也是基督在马太福音12章36~37节里所提的警告。上帝并没有教人怎样理解生命中一切令人费解的虚空,却指示人去享受生命,看为祂的恩赐,要善用每一个机会,并且以敬畏上帝的态度来生活,同时知道将来会有审判。所罗门学会了与生命中的矛盾共存,他对生命并且对上帝都保持正确的态度。我们应当效法如此的行为。

Book: Ecclesiastes (Old Testament)
Author: Solomon

Ecclesiastes 12:14 :“For God will bring every work into judgement, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”

Today’s Meditation: The preacher had all his earnest teaching. He gave his last reminder that anything we do whether good or evil will be judged by God. He added in a sentence of ‘including every secret thing’. This is also the same warning given by Christ in Matthew 12:36~37. God did not teach us how to understand the emptiness in our life. He instructed us to enjoy life, understand our grace, utilise every single chance, and live a fearful life towards God while knowing the day of judgement to come. Solomon understood the paradox in life. He held proper attitude towards God and life. We should learn how he did it.
