人生中最重要的事
作者:讀經:路加福音十二章13至23節

基督向著一大群民眾講話(1節),突然有人高聲呼叫:「老師,我的兄長不肯將家產分給我,請你替我主持公道!」

基督只應了他一句(14節),便繼續向眾人講話,提醒他們不要貪戀錢財,「因為人的生命不在乎家道豐富」。基督再次用比喻來講解這個真理。

比喻中的財主擁有豐富的田產,可惜人生觀卻完全錯誤。他重視身體而並非靈魂;重視短暫的今生而非永恆。
世人可能認為他是一個長袖善舞的傑出人士。他擅於計劃,以致年年豐收;他又精於打算,準備擴充他的倉庫。他的人生正不住邁向高峰!

他對自己說些甚麼呢?「靈魂啊,你有許多財物積存,可作多年的費用,只管安安逸逸的吃喝快樂吧!」然而,財物是不能滿足靈魂的!今天的人之所以躁動不安,其中一個原因,正是因為在這方面出錯:他們吃喝玩樂,想用種種物質來滿足自己,誰不知這一切都只能滿足肉體,卻完全不能滿足人的心靈!

財主所想的「多年」,究竟是多久呢?神卻對他說:「你只能活到今夜!」神「破壞」了他的人生大計。財主雖然擁有倉庫和田地,卻沒有醒覺他的人生並非在他的掌握之中,以及人生只是很短暫。

基督提醒眾人,永恆遠比今生重要;同時,認識神也遠比賺取財富要緊。

基督在馬太福音十六章26節提醒我們說:「人若賺得全世界,賠上自己的生命,有甚麼益處呢?人還拿甚麼換生命呢?」



WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE?


BIBLE READING:Luke 12:13-23

It almost seems an abrupt interruption. Christ was speaking to a huge crowd (v.1) when suddenly a man calls out! ‵Teacher, my brother won‵t give me what I want‵.

Christ replied briefly (v.14) then went on to warn the crowd about greed, ‵There is more to life than money‵.

Again he used a short story to drive home that truth.

In the parable, the rich successful farmer had a totally wrong perspective. He preferred his body to his soul and he preferred time to eternity.

The world would have considered him a smart man, an outstanding success. He had planning ability. He had bumper crops. He had the capacity to extend his storage barns. He was on the way up!

What were his thoughts? ‵I will say to myself you have plenty of good things laid up for many years!‵ But a man‵s soul cannot be satisfied with ‵goods‵. One of the reasons behind the restlessness of this age is just that. Men and women are trying to feed and satisfy their inner beings by those things which only touch the body.

He spoke about ‵many years‵. But how long is eternity? And what did God say? ‵Tonight - now I‵ God broke in on his thoughts and his life-program. What he didn‵t realise was that he might own his barns and his land, but he had a permissive occupancy on life itself.

Christ was wanting his hearers to realise that Eternity is more important than time. Knowing God, said Christ, is far more important than all the riches of earth.

Christ said it again in Matthew 16:16, ‵What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? What is your answer to that?‵
