《受難週靈修默想》:「因為常有窮人和你們同在,要向他們行善隨時都可以;只是你們不常有我。」(可14:7)

默想一:馬利亞的奉獻為何蒙神記念?因她有信心的眼光,不僅認出這將是主耶穌待在伯大尼的最後一天,也看出耶穌將要被釘死在十字架上以完成彌賽亞的使命。 為此,她把握最後的機會,把最美的、盡她所能買到的香膏及時地獻給還未被釘死的耶穌,以表達她對基督那真誠的愛及活的信心。

默想二:愛可用金錢來衡量嗎?不可能!三十兩銀子的代價固然昂貴,但一顆愛主的心又豈是金銀所能衡量、所能相比?周濟窮人固然是主所喜悅的善行,但又有哪一件善行能夠代替祂所需要的愛? 主固然需要工作的事奉,主更需要愛的事奉。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝袮如此長闊高深的愛,像我這樣渺小的人竟然蒙袮恩寵。在默想主耶穌在十字架上的受難時,求袮的聖靈引導我,讓我明白袮的愛,也回應袮的愛。奉耶穌的名禱告,阿們!

《Jesus Crucifixion Week spiritual meditation》: ”The poor you will always have with you,[b] and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me.” (Mar 14:7)

Meditation one: Why is Mary’s devotion remembered by God? Because of her faith and vision, she recognized not only that it would be the last day of Jesus ‘ stay in Bethany, but also that Jesus was about to be crucified to fulfill the Messiah’s mission. For this reason, she took the last chance to dedicate to Jesus, who had not yet been crucified, the most beautiful and costly ointment of pure nard, in order to express her sincere love and living faith in Christ.

Meditation two: Can love be measured by money? It’s impossible! Although three hundred pence is precious, but can a heart of loving the Lord be measured by gold and silver? Compare to the good deeds of helping the poor that the Lord is pleased, yet can any good deeds replace the love He needs from us? The Lord, of course, needs the ministry of work, but the Lord needs the ministry of Love more.

Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for such a breadth and length and height and depth love, and a trivial person like me can receive Your grace. In meditating on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus, ask Your Holy Spirit to guide me, let me understand Your love, and respond to Your love. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen!
