存心 [Intention]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书14章14节:“我凭着主耶稣确知深信,凡物本来没有不洁净的;惟独人以为不洁净的,在他就不洁净了。”

今日默想:保罗深信百物都可吃,但他为着弟兄的缘故,并未固守这一项真理。凡事合乎真理固然重要,但叫弟兄得益处更重要。同样的食物,因人的认知而产生不同的效果,可见问题不在于外面的物质,问题乃在于里面的存心。新约信徒所要注意的,是里面不是外面,在乎灵不在乎仪文。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 14:14 :“I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.”

Today’s Meditation: Paul believed that everything can be eaten, but he did not maintain such truth for the sake of brethren. It is important to follow the truth, but it is more important to benefit one another. Same food can yield different effects depending on different people. It is clear that the problem is not at the quality of the food, but the inner mind. We need to take note as New Testament Christian that we should emphasise inside more than outside.
