归感谢于上帝 [Give Thanksgivings to God]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书9章12节:“因为办这供给的事,不但补圣徒的缺乏,而且叫许多人越发感谢上帝。”

今日默想:今天有许多所谓的教会团体,大力推行社会关怀运动,用意虽好,但在各地仍有大批穷苦圣徒的情况下,这种作法乃是本末倒置。将从上帝所得的恩惠传输给人,向人施恩,使受恩者的眼目转向上帝,因而感谢上帝,这是奉献钱财所该有的情形。凡不能叫人感谢上帝的奉献,恐怕其动机或作法有问题。如果我们吝于帮补圣徒,我们是在剥夺他们从上帝得着供给的权利,同时也是在剥夺上帝所应得的感谢。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 9:12 :“For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God.”

Today’s Meditation: Today, there are many so-called church organisations who promote social care works extensively. Their motive is good, but it is doing things in the wrong order under the situation of vast poor believers. The proper situation of giving is that we give others the grace from God, let them turn their eyes to God and thanksgiving to God. The giving that cannot give thanks to God is wrong in motive. If we are selfish in helping others, we are depriving their rights to receive from God, as well as depriving the thanksgivings God deserves.
