Ruth

File May 31, 3 14 34 PM很久没有读到这么让人精神为之一振的圣经故事了。读完的时候我在车里握着方向盘高呼 哈利路亚。确切哈利路亚的含义我不确定,但就是充满喜悦的想要献上我对神的敬仰。除了对路得她照顾自己婆家不离不弃的深情表示敬佩之外,我也很欣赏波阿斯说到做到的骑士风格。再说到文中描写的对神尊重的生活环境,我不禁想问自己,在现在的社会环境,是否能寻求得到呢? 答案是肯定的,环境是可以自己创造的。只要我秉持对神的尊重,坚持去教会,参与教会的服侍,就像是之前在香槟的日子,我需要建议的时候是可以找到比我长辈的基督徒一起求告的。那在这里,我鼓励每一位弟兄姐妹,去寻求。先去寻求属于自己的教会,也就是每个周日能够点燃你内心小火苗的周日服侍。然后寻求属于自己的小组,学习圣经,也就是你能够坦然表述你对圣经理解,并愿意学习其他人的观点的小组聚会。最后也是最重要的,就是在每日的查经和祷告中,寻求神的话语和平安。查经应该成为一种生活态度,就像是,我不吃隔夜饭,就像是,我每天要喝咖啡,就像是,我每顿饭都要吃菜菜,就像是,不擦防晒不出门。当然,我只是打比方,不代表我一定是这样(汗)。当查经和祷告成为了一种生活态度的时候,你也会体验到生活质量的提高。

Ruth 1:16 But Ruth said: “Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.”16 路得说:“不要逼我撇你而去。你往哪里去,我也要往哪里去;你住在哪里,我也要住在哪里;你的同胞就是我的同胞,你的上帝就是我的上帝; 17 你死在哪里,我也死在哪里、葬在哪里。只有死才能把我们分开。否则,愿耶和华重重地惩罚我!”

Ruth 2:15 And when she rose up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her. 16 Also let grain from the bundles fall purposely for her; leave it that she may glean, and do not rebuke her.” 15 当她起来又要去捡麦穗的时候,波阿斯就吩咐他的工人说:“你们要任由她捡,就算她在割下的麦子中捡麦穗,你们也不要为难她。 16 甚至要从麦捆中抽一些出来让她捡,不要责骂她。”

Ruth 3:13 Stay this night, and in the morning it shall be that if he will perform the duty of a close relative for you—good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, then I will perform the duty for you, as the Lord lives! Lie down until morning.” 13 你今晚就留在这里,明天早上,如果他答应尽亲属的义务,就由他照顾你;如果他不肯,我凭永活的耶和华起誓,我会尽我的本分。现在你只管安心睡觉吧。”

Ruth 4:15 And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.” 15 他必让你的生命重新得力,奉养你,使你安度晚年,因为他是爱你的儿媳妇所生的。有这儿媳妇比有七个儿子还要好!”
