使人和睦的人有福了


使人和睦的人有福了

Blessed Are Peacemakers

 

我必安然躺下睡觉,因为独有你耶和华使我安然居住。

——诗4:8

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. —Psalm 4:8

 

我们处于一个物质的世界中,它试图隔断我们与神的关系,我们无处可逃只有靠着自己。就好比交通事故中的乌龟一样,我们能做的是把脑袋伸进壳里,然后闭上眼睛……这是丢掉性命最好的方式,很多丢掉性命的乌龟都证实了这一点。

 

人与人相争,在某种程度上也是与神相争的表现,除非人停止与神的争战,不然就无法与人和睦共处。若要与人和睦,我们首先要与神和睦。

 

In a materialistic world which has tried to sever diplomatic relations with God, we have nowhere to retreat except within ourselves. We are like turtles in a traffic jam—the best we can do is to pull our heads into our shells and shut our eyes. But that’s a good way to get the life crushed out of us, as any dead turtle can attest.

Man’s conflict with man has been but an expression on the human level of his conflict with God. Until man finds an armistice with God, he cannot know peace with his fellowman. If we are to be peacemakers, we first must make our peace with God.
