爱 [Love]

书卷:约翰一书(新约)
作者:使徒约翰

约翰一书4章10节:“不是我们爱上帝,乃是上帝爱我们,差祂的儿子为我们的罪做了挽回祭,这就是爱了。”

今日默想:真正的爱,不是出于人的爱,因为凡是出于人的爱,都多少含有人间的私情、亲谊、英雄意识、各种形式的虚荣、各种表扬自我的伟大感。上帝的爱乃完全为别人着想,当对方不可爱的时候,仍能爱之,甚至牺牲自己,也在所不惜,这就是爱了。爱是需付出代价的,爱的代价乃是自己──时间、金钱、喜好、面子、地位等等。爱也是有功效的,爱的功效乃是搭桥──拆除隔阂、误会、敌意、间距等等。

Book: 1 John (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

1 John 4:10 :“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

Today’s Meditation: True love is not from human, for love from human contains personal feeling, kinship, heroism, narcissism, and sense of greatness for ourselves. The love of God is thought for others. God can still love them even when they are not lovable that He even sacrificed His own Son. This is love. Love needs a price, and the price of love is ourselves in term of time, money, preferences, reputation, status, and others. Love works to remove barriers, misunderstandings, hostility, distances, and others.
