加倍给予那缺欠的 [Give Greater Honour to that Part which Lacks]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书12章24节:“我们俊美的肢体,自然用不着装饰;但上帝配搭这身子,把加倍的体面给那有缺欠的肢体,”

今日默想:既然教会是上帝所配搭的,就上帝所安排的弟兄姊妹,必有祂的美意。在教会中,我们没有选择的余地。我们不能只要某些合意的人,而不要我们所不中意的人。同时,上帝将每一个人配搭在这身子上,不都是一样的用处各有职司、功用,因此我们既不可荒废自己的用处,也不可藐视、践踏别人的用处。人的配搭,都是重看那体面的,重用那俊美的,结果就会强、弱、美、丑,分门别类。但上帝配搭的教会,乃是不体面的,越发给他加上体面;不俊美的,越发得着俊美,把加倍的体面给,那有缺欠的肢体。人的光景与上帝的心意相差何远。在教会中,人往往关注那杰出的肢体,但上帝所特别关怀的,却是那些被人轻忽的。我们应当学习以基督耶稣的心为心,以上帝的看法为看法。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 12:24 :“but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honour to that part which lacks it,”

Today’s Meditation: Since church is composed by God, every brother and sister is arranged by God with His meanings. We cannot choose who we cooperate with in church. God places each of us without the same function where each supplies different works. Thus, we should not neglect ourselves or look down upon others. Human composes based on appearances, while God bestows greater honour on those members of the body which we think to be less honourable; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, having given greater honour to that part which lacks it. Our prospects are so much different than God’s prospects. In church, we care of the excelling members. However, God cares of the neglected members. We should have the mind of Christ and make God’s prospects as ours.
