神父講道 – 常年期第二十三週 (週四) (2010年9月9日)

聖高華
恭讀聖路加福音 6:27-38
那時候,耶穌向門徒和群眾說:「我對你們說:應愛你們的仇人,善待惱恨你們的人;應祝福詛咒你們的人,為毀謗你們的人祈禱。有人打你的面頰,也把另一面轉給他;有人拿去你的外衣,也不要阻擋他拿你的內衣。凡求你的,就給他;有人拿去你的東西,別再索回。你們願意人怎樣待你們,也要怎樣待人。若你們愛那愛你們的,為你們還算什麼功德?因為連罪人也愛那愛他們的人。你們善待那善待你們的,為你們還算什麼功德?因為連罪人也這樣作。你們若借給那些有希望償還的,為你們還算什麼功德?就是罪人也借給罪人,為能如數收回。但是,你們當愛你們的仇人,善待他們;借出,不要再指望收回;如此,你們的賞報必定豐厚,且要成為至高者的子女,因為他對待忘恩負義的人和惡人是仁慈的。你們應當慈悲,就像你們的父那樣慈悲。你們不要判斷,也就不受判斷;不要定罪,也就不被定罪;你們要赦免,也就蒙赦免。你們給,也就給你們;並且還要用好的,連按帶搖,以致外溢的升斗,倒在你們的懷裏,因為你們用什麼升斗量給人,也必用什麼升斗量給你們。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:27-38

27 “But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from him who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. 30 Give to every one who begs from you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again. 31 And as you wish that men would do to you, do so to them. 32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. 37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; 38 give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路6:39-42 (其他經文──格前9:16-19, 22-27   詠84)
耶穌向門徒講比喻說:「瞎子豈能給瞎子領路?不是兩人都要跌在坑裡嗎?沒有徒弟勝過師傅的:凡受過完備教育的,僅相似自己的師傅而已。怎麼,你看見你兄弟眼中的木屑,而你眼中的木樑,倒不理會呢?你怎能對你的兄弟說:兄弟,讓我取出你眼中的木屑吧!而你竟看不見自己眼中的大樑呢?假善人啊!先取出你眼中的大樑,然後才看得清楚,以便取出你兄弟眼中的木屑。

默 想

  • 不能寬恕那得罪我們的人,往往因為視自己非常非常重要,這個「我」,佔據自己的心,這個「我」,此刻變成「大樑」。
  • 如果將自己看為微塵(不是要大家變得自卑,根本是兩碼子的事),你或會變得更謙遜,眼光闊得足以看到那得罪你的人的痛苦,或者,他之所以傷害你,很可能出於他內心的恐懼或憤怒。
  • 你開闊了的心胸,日子有功之下,能融化你對他的恨和怨,甚至生出憐憫、關懷呢。
  • 當你逐能戴上耶穌的「眼鏡」看這個世界的人與事,發現中間的緊扣關聯性,你將學會以柔軟的心,面對這人世間的種種疾苦。
