《今日靈修默想》:「我實在告訴你們:這些事你們既做在我弟兄中一個最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。」(太25:40)

默想一:為什麼你做在弟兄中一個最小的身上是蒙神記念的事?因為你正做在耶穌眼裡所看重的“小弟兄”—他們是被一般人所忽略、丟棄、輕視、排擠的人,而這些人都是離我們不遠且能看得見的人。我們為他們所做的有像耶穌做在我們身上的一樣嗎?我們的善行不是得救的依據,但卻是擁有基督生命的證據。

默想二:耶穌今天在哪裡?在漂亮的教堂裡?在舒適的基督徒團契裡?在禱告會裡?祂是在貧窮的社區裡,在病人的醫院,在囚犯的監牢裡,是在心靈破碎的人群裡。耶穌所在的地方,是我們服事神及服事人的地方。我們對耶穌的態度,是顯明在我們對祂的弟兄的態度上。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝祢指示我當為將來在哪裡度永恆而準備。求袮打開我屬靈的眼睛及耳朵,好讓我看見及聽見周圍人的需要,並樂意以行動關懷、服事、愛他們。奉耶穌基督的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Mat 25:40)

Meditation one: Why God remembers whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters? It is because that you are doing for the “least” whom Jesus values—they are people who are overlooked, rejected, despised, excluded by ordinary people, and these people are not far from us and within our sights. Do we do for them like Jesus did for us? Our good deeds are not the proof of salvation, but they are the proof of having the life of Christ.

Meditation two: Where is Jesus today? Is He in a beautiful church, or a comfortable Christian fellowship or a prayer meeting? He is in a poor community, in a patients’ hospital, in a prisoner’s cell, and in a broken heart. Jesus is at the place where we serve God and people. Our attitude towards Jesus is manifested in our attitude towards His brethren.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for making known to me to prepare for where I will spend eternity in the future. Please open my spiritual eyes and ears so that I can see and hear the needs of those around me, and be willing to care, serve, and love them with actions. I pray in the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
