Weekly Prayers

親愛的匯點人:

 

智慧書有不少內容是透過觀察人性和神的屬性去解釋律法的理由。「智慧」與「理解」(中文聖經通常譯為「聰明」或「悟性」)是可替換的近義詞(箴言 3:19-20; 24:3-4)。 讀智慧書使人不止知其然,也知其所以然。 同樣地,祈求智慧不止是求能力去做正確的決定或是得到一些技巧將事情辦好, 也是求去明白為什麼要做某些事情,明白了就更有心力去做。 讓我們祈求更有深度的悟性智慧,去了解神的心意(箴言 25:2)!

Dear Crosspointers,

 

Much of wisdom literature in the Bible explains the rationale behind the Laws through observations of human and divine natures.  The word “wisdom” is used interchangeably with “understanding” (Prov. 3:19-20; 24:3-4).  Wisdom literature teaches not just how, but what and why.  Similarly, praying for wisdom is more than seeking the ability to make the correct decision and the skills to carry out the requisite tasks, it is also to understand why we need to do certain things so that we may have the desire to do them.  Let’s pray for more wisdom of understanding so that we may appreciate the purpose of God (Prov. 25:2)!
