1月23日《管教! Discipline》
希伯來書12:11
經文默想:『凡管教的事,當時不覺得快樂,反覺得愁苦,後來卻為那經練過的人結出平安的果子,就是義。』
主啊,我試著一點一點地塑造我的兒女成為跟隨你的人。我慢慢地帶著耐心一直以愛如此行,還禱告別讓我白費力氣。
而在此時,你心中有一個我將變得如何的異象。父上帝啊,當我被你責備時,請赦免我。通常我會因無法看清原由,以致覺得那比較像是重擔而不是祝福,然而,不論我怎麼固執,你卻未曾給我重擔。你以愛來教導我、指教我,使我逐漸成為你希望我成為的人。我感謝你! 這樣禱告,是奉耶穌的名求,阿們!
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." ~Hebrews 12:11
Dear Lord, I try to shape my children to be your followers bit by bit. I did it slowly and consistently with love and prayed that my efforts would not be in vain.
And at this moment, you have a vision of what I will become. Father God, please forgive me when you discipline me. Often, I don’t see the reason and treat it like a burden rather than a blessing. However, no matter how stubborn I am, you have never stressed me. You guide me with love and shape me into what you hope me to become. I am thankful for you. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
