爱,知识,见识 [Love, Knowledge, Discernment]

书卷:腓利比书(新约)
作者:保罗

腓立比书1章9节:“我所祷告的,就是要你们的爱心在知识和各样见识上多而又多,”

今日默想:信徒往往只注意爱的行动,却很少注意培养爱的生命。保罗的祷告表示:惟一能叫我们的爱心朝正确的方向长进的,乃是上帝自己。除祂以外,别无妙方。上帝不但要我们有爱心,而且要我们的爱心多而又多。换句话说,上帝要我们在爱心中有成长。我们须有丰盛、满溢的爱,才能应付在我们生命中所发生的每一件事。上帝要我们的爱丰富到一个地步,不但是满溢出来,并且整个人标志着爱,而成为一个“爱”的人。信徒的爱不只是感情作用,而且是扎根于知识和各样见识上的。爱心必须受知识和见识的平衡。爱心加上知识和各样见识,才能符合上帝的旨意,也才能给人有真实的益处。没有知识和各样见识的爱心,乃是教会一切问题的根源。它往往领人离开正道,走向偏激。

Book: Philippians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Philippians 1:9 :“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,”

Today’s Meditation: We often only focus on the action of love without cultivating the life of love. The prayer of Paul tells that the only person that can lead our love to grow in correct direction is God Himself. There is no other way than Him. God not only wants us to have love, but also more and more. In another word, God wants us to grow in love. We need to have abundant and overflowing love to face everything in our life. God wants our love to be abundant until overflowing so that we can be labelled as the person of ‘love’. Our love is not only emotional, but also to root within knowledge and all discernment. Love must be balanced with knowledge and discernment. Love along with knowledge and discernment can fulfil the will of God and edify other people. Love without knowledge and discernment is the source of problems of churches. It leads people away the right path to the extreme.
