忽略 Overlooked and Neglected

Acts 6:1-4

1门徒不断增加的时候,讲希腊话的犹太人,埋怨本地的希伯来人,因为在日常的供给上,忽略了他们的寡妇。2于是十二使徒召集了众门徒,说:要我们放下上帝的道,去管理伙食,是不合适的。3所以弟兄们,应当从你们中间选出七个有好见证、满有圣灵和智慧的人,我们就派他们负责这事。4至于我们,我们要专心祈祷、传道。

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews[a] among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”

 

 

重点学习

属于上帝的组织,尽管有多圣洁和值得赞扬的,也可能被人败坏和污染。我们也必须注意撒旦的战术,因为撒旦一直计划如何剥夺上帝给我们的恩赐。

上帝增加祂教会的人数,并且从各方各地尽量地召来众人,是一件最为理想的事。但是我们腐败的本质却导致这项事工无法在各个层面都蓬勃发展。

我们应该记住,除非上帝增添人数,否则我们犁地、播种和浇水的工作都是徒劳的。

 

 

Lessons Learn

None of God’s institutions are so sacred and praiseworthy that they are not corrupt or polluted by men.We must also note that Stan’s tactics, since Satan is always engaged in depriving us of God’s gifts.

Nothing is more desirable than that God may increase the numbers in his church and add as many people as possible from every quarter; but our corrupt nature stops anything from prospering in every respect.

We should remember that our work in plowing, sowing, and watering is all in vain unless God gives the increase.
