箴言14参考

“我不求人,别人也别求我”──这是你的处世哲学吗?
14:4 农夫没有耕田的牛,他喂牛的槽就会空空如也。要想使你的生活不发生人际纠纷,惟一的方法就是不与别人来往。但是如果你一生不与人交往,生命就毫无价值;如果你只为自己而活,你的人生就没有意义。不要避开人,而要服事人,将信仰与人分享,谋求公平公义。你的人生是与别人毫无关涉而变得空虚,还是一心一意地事奉神,生活得很充实?

我努力寻求智慧却不得,哪里出问题了?
14:6 亵慢的人就是指嘲笑一切教导或规劝的人。他们不认真寻求智慧,所以也找不到智慧。智慧不难找到,只要你肯留意神和有经验的人。如果总找不到智慧,问题多半出在你的态度上。

“正直人互相喜悦”,他不喜欢我,我还要喜欢他吗?
14:9 在现今的生活中我们很难找到和睦的气氛。街头常见人彼此怒骂的情景;人们你争我斗,务求压倒别人;雇主与雇员为争取自己的权益而对立……但是属神的子民相处时,应当亲切友善。友善的人处处为他人著想,以诚心待人,而且只做当做的事。当别人触犯了你,令你怒火中烧的时候,你要问自己,“我怎样能向这人表达善意?”

哪些是“人以为正”的路?信主后,我有否这方面的体会?
14:12 那条“人以为正”的路可能给人许多的选择,而且只须作极少的牺牲。但对于那些容易走的路,我们需要仔细地衡量。它有吸引力的原因,是否因为它容许我们闲懒,不要求我们改变生活方式,或免去道德的约束?走正确的路常需要勤恳地工作及舍己的精神。不要被“人以为正,至终成为死亡之路”所引诱。

我脾气暴躁是性格所致,甚么?也可能是自私的表现?……
14:29 暴躁的性情会像烧起来的火一样失去控制,它能伤害自己及他人。发怒会破坏人与人的关系,又会使我们作出冲动的举动,产生苦毒与罪恶感。不过,愤怒本身并不是错误的,看到不公平与罪恶发生时会愤怒是合理的反应。你要发怒的时候,首先要找出发怒的原因。你是因为看到邪恶的事情而发怒,还是出于自私的本能呢?你应当求神帮助你控制暴躁的性情,将情绪纳入正轨,藉著谦卑与悔改的心,克服自私的怒气。

怜悯穷人乃是尊敬主,这我可没怎么想过……
14:31 神特别关注贫穷人。他坚持物质丰富的人应当慷慨地帮助有缺乏的人。为穷人提供帮助不单是圣经的教导,更是一条诫命(参利23:22;申15:7-8;诗113:5-9;146:5-9;赛58:7;林后9:9;雅2:1-9)。
