善事 [Charitable Deeds]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音6章1节:“你们要小心,不可将善事行在人的面前,故意叫他们看见;若是这样,就不能得你们天父的赏赐了。”

今日默想:基督徒要养成一个习惯,就是要在暗中行义。那些只活在人面前的人,绝不能讨上帝的喜悦。世人是凭事物本身的好坏而予评价,信徒却是凭事物背后的动机而予评价。信徒不但不能作坏事,连动机不纯正的好事也不能作。任何一件好事,不可为着让人看见才去作。真正能蒙上帝悦纳的好事,乃是惟恐被人知道而受人夸奖。凡作事喜欢显扬的人,乃是属肉体的人。属肉体的人总是喜欢高抬自己,喜欢被人注意,喜欢得着称赞。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 6:1 :“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.”

Today’s Meditation: Christians should have a habit, that is to do righteous without letting others knowing. Those who live before men can never please God. The world judges a thing based on its value, but Christians judge things based on the motive behind them. We not only cannot do bad deeds, but also those with impure motive. Any good deed cannot be done so that others can see. A good deed that truly please God is the good deed that we fear to get praise when others know. One who likes to make known to things they do belongs to carnal. Carnal people like to exalt themselves, receive attention and praises.
