Bible

Happy is the man who does not go in the company of sinners, or take his place in the way of evil-doers, or in the seat of those who do not give honour to the Lord.
Psalms 1:1

                        12 要心懷滿足     11/22/2020

經文: 出埃及記 20:17; 提摩太前書6:6-10; 約翰一書2:15-17

前言: 十誡之最末一誡是不可貪別人有的,  今天, 我們將看到跟隨耶穌之門徒不可貪

           婪且要追隨滿足。

上週: 我們已學到廣闊的、虔誠希望認識何謂偷。

這週: 我們更深的認識信實與廉正的重要。

 

  1. 誤置渴望: 出埃及記 20:17, 不可貪戀人的房屋、也不可貪戀人的妻子、僕婢、牛驢、並他一切所有的。。

解經: 貪戀是只想得到別人的財務,不僅是羨慕別人的財務,或者心裡想 "巴不得我也擁有",貪戀也包括別人有而我自己沒有,生出仇恨的心。神知道財務絕不能使人長久的幸福,只有神能供給人一切的需要,所以人也只能從他那堭o到滿足,您若開始生出貪心,就要設法找出在您心中,是否有些本來只是基本需要的東西卻發展成嫉妒的。例如,您可能羨慕別人的成就 當求神除去您心中的恨意,求神來滿足您基本的需求。(參考聖經靈修版149 )                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

 

  1. 渴望富裕: 提摩太前書6:6-10, 6然而敬虔加上知足的心便是大利了.7  因為我們沒有帶甚麼到世上來也不能帶甚麼去.8 只要有衣有食、就當知足。9

但那些想要發財的人、就陷在迷惑、落在網羅、和許多無知有害的私慾裡、叫人沉在敗壞和滅亡中。10 貪財是萬惡之根.有人貪戀錢財、就被引誘離了真道、用許多愁苦把自己刺透了。”

解經: 不管事實怎樣告訴人金錢絕非快樂之源,但很多人相信金錢能為他們帶來快樂。有錢人為了賺取更多的錢財,最後跌進絕望和毀滅中。我們怎樣做才不至於墮進貪愛金錢的陷阱中呢? (參考箴言30:7-9) 保羅給了我們 一些原則: 1)認識到一切財富有一天都會化為烏有(6:7,17) ; 2) 為自己所有的感到滿足 (6:8) ; 3) 監管自己不要成為金錢的奴綠 (6:9,10) ; 4) 愛人多於愛錢 (6:11); 6) 愛神的工作勝過愛金錢 (6:11) ; 7) 樂於與人分享自己所有的 (6:18)

                                                                                              (參考聖經靈修本593)                                                                                            

  1. 愛世界心: 約一2:15-17,15, 不要愛世界、和世界上的事。人若愛世界、愛父的心就不在他裡面了。』16 因為凡世界上的事、就像肉體的情慾、眼目的情慾、並今生的驕傲、都不是從父來的、乃是從世界來的。17 這世界、和其上的情慾、都要過去.惟獨遵行 神旨意的、是永遠常存。

解經: 在這第十誡 (出埃及記 20:17,)愛父 世界上的東西是矛盾不能兩立的。衛斯理之一本書 富裕之危險The Danger of Riches向人類敗壞貪得心挑戰。吾人用我們多餘的錢去縱容自己用在買新衣, 大一點房子, 與不關重要的裝飾。神信任我們足使我們能享受吃飽與穿溫的祝福。

約翰衛斯理令著作一本書 (“錢的用法”) 要相信 生命的榮耀” (2:16) 強調要工作,不做歸之於來自顯著的浪費和空虛的讚賞 我們要避免讓人們認為我們有許多 玩具而是要感恩神的祝福

 

      4.   結論:                                                                                                                                           

1). 誤置渴望: 放肆(過度)的欲望,導致侵犯別人        

2). 渴望富裕: 死不帶去下輩子或天國

3). 愛世界心: 保羅, 他所寫的書信叮嚀我們,那引起我們放肆的慾望,將

會離開我們那些心向著神與尊主旨意的人,將會經驗到豐盛生命之來

臨。

Unit 1. The Ten Commandments

                       Session 12 “Be Content "           11/22/2020

        Exodus 20:17; 1 Timothy 6:6-10; 1 John 2:15-17

By Dr. Meiman Lai, Saidi

    http://www.WorldwideOTS.org

 

Preface: The final commandment in the Ten Commandments forbids coveting, the

               inordinate desire for what others have. Today, we will see that followers of

               Jesus are called to reject covetousness and pursue contentment.

Last Week: We saw how truthfulness is characteristic of those who walk with God.

This Week: We will see the importance of experiencing the contentment that comes

               from loving God, not things.

 

  1. Misplaced Desires: Exodus 20:17, “You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Commentary: To covet is to wish to have the possessions of others. It goes beyond simply admiring someone else’s possessions or thinking, “I’d like to have one of those.” Coveting includes envy – resenting the fact that others have what you do not. God knows, however, that possessions never make anyone happy for long. Since only God can supply all our needs, true contentment is found only in Him. When you begin to covet, try to determine if a more basic need is leading you to envy. For example, you may covet someone’s success, not because you want to take it away from him, but because you would like to feel as appreciated by others as he is. If this is the case, pray that God will help you deal your resentment and meet your basic needs.                       (Excerpts from p166 of N.I.V.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                               

  1. The Desire To Get Rich: 1 Timothy 6:6-10, “6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Commentary: 1 Timothy 6:6-10, “Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, most people still believe that money brings happiness. Rich people craving greater riches can be caught in an endless cycle that only ends in ruin and destruction. How can you keep away from the love of money? Paul gives us some guidelines: 1) realize that one day riches will all be gone (6:7, 17) ; 2)be content with what you have (6:8) ; 3) monitor what you are willing to do to get more money (6:9,10); 4) love people more than money (6:11; 5) love God’s work more than money (6:11) ; 6) freely share what you have with others (6:18). (See Proverbs 30:7-9 for more on avoiding the love of money.)                                                                  (excerpts from N.I.V.p.2605)

                                                                                                 

  1. Loving the World: 1 John 2:15-17, “15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For everything in the world--the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does--comes not from the Father but from the world.

17 The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”

Commentary:  1 John 2:15-17, In the 10th commandment (Exodus 20:17). “Love for the Father” and the covetous desire to possess “everything in the world” are incompatible. Wesley (“The Danger of Riches”) thought it challenged fallen humanity’s insatiable acquisitiveness. We use our excess money to indulge ourselves with frivolous expenditures on new clothes, bigger houses, and useless decorations. God entrusts us with more than enough so we can enjoy the blessing of feeding the hungry and clothing the naked.

John Wesley (“The use of Money”) believed “the pride of life” (2:16) referred to our vain pursuit of honor, admiration, and praise that comes from conspicuous consumption. We must work each day, and we must avoid the desire for people to notice our huge piles of “toys” and instead develop a thankfulness for how God has blessed us. 

                                                            

  1. Conclusions:

   1). Misplaced Desires: Inordinate (excessive) desire leads to the violation of the

        others.

   2). The Desire to Get Rich:  The possessions we have so eagerly sought will not

        pass from this life to the next, the life of the age of the kingdom of God.

   3). Loving the World: Loving the things of this world that desire in us will pass

        away. Those whose hearts and desires are rightly oriented toward God and the

        Will of God will experience abundant life in the age to come.
