纪念上帝 [Remember the Lord]

书卷:申命记(旧约)
作者:摩西

申命记8章18节:“你要纪念耶和华你的上帝,因为得货财的力量是祂给你的,为要坚定祂向你列祖起誓所立的约,像今日一样。”

今日默想:人若长于经营,有生财的本领,不可把上帝赐的这种能力当成自己的。我们所拥有的一切都是出于上帝的恩典。每一次论到记念上帝时,都不是把上帝当作一个静止的记念对象,乃是记念祂的动能和工作,并其工作的果效。我们的货财是我们自己的力量得来的。但要记得,这力量却是上帝所赐给的。上帝赐给我们这一切,并不是因我们有什么功劳或配得的,乃出于上帝的恩约,就是祂起誓向你列祖所立的。因上帝的恩典和这立约,才有我们这现有的生活惬意的光景。

Book: Deuteronomy (Old Testament)
Author: Moses

Deuteronomy 8:18 :“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”

Today’s Meditation: If we are good in managing business and getting wealth, we cannot treat this ability from God as ours. Everything we have is a grace of God. Everytime we remember the Lord, we must not remember Him as a static being, but His active abilities and works. It is our strength to get our wealth. However, such strength comes from God. God gives us everything of these not because we are worthy, but because of His grace which He established His covenant with our ancestors. We have such a comfortable prospect due to such His grace and covenant.
