箴言15参考

音量、语气对你说的话很有影响,你觉得自己在这方面需要改善吗?
15:1 你曾试过轻声细语地与人争辩吗?同样地,你若坚持以柔声对答的话,别人也不容易与你发生争辩。但另一方面,大声与暴戾的言语,常常激出对方的恶言相向。要想消除暴怒、寻求和睦,就要使用柔和的言语。

世风日下,犯罪率日升,神怎么不动工?
15:3 有时神似乎让邪恶在这个世界上横行。我们会疑惑神是否留意到这些事;但是神清清楚楚地知道一切,包括人的恶行与促成恶行的动机(15:11)。他并不是一位无动于衷的旁观者,他既眷顾我们,也在这世界动工。目前,我们虽看不见他在工作,但绝不要灰心。总有一天,他必除灭邪恶,惩罚恶人;他也要确立公义,并赏赐遵行他旨意的人。

追求知识没有错,不过你要有所选择──
15:14 滋养精神的营养,与供养身体的饮食一样重要。我们所读的书刊,与朋友的交谈,所听的音乐,所看的电影与电视,都是日常生活中的精神食粮。你应当用心辨别,因为滋养你心志的精神食粮会影响你整个人的健康与发展。因此,热切地寻求知识,就是智慧的表徵。

我遇到这么多问题,叫我如何能不愁?──有办法!你想不想试?
15:15 我们的态度显出我们的个性。我们常不能决定临到我们的事,却能决定应付各种情势的态度。内心喜乐的秘诀,就是在心中经常思念正义的、纯洁的、可爱的、对人生有益的事;这也是保罗在被囚禁时仍有喜乐的秘诀(参腓4:8)。我们面对生活的艰难困苦时,也可以运用这种秘诀。你要察看自己的态度,检查你怎样看待自身的境况。也许,你需要作一些改变。

怎么理解“正直人的路是平坦的大道”?
15:17-19 正直人的路似乎并不是平坦的(15:19);但看看另一种情况,你就会释然了。那些仇恨(15:17)、争端(15:18)、懒惰(15:19)所引起的问题,正直人不一定都要面对,对比之下,正直人的道路是一条平坦的康庄大道,因为那条道路是建造在爱神的牢固基础上的。

集思广益和自作主张,你通常偏向哪方?
15:22 人若在管中窥豹,必所见有限。人凭有限的知识可能找不到正路,因为他们思想不开通,不能领会新的意见。你要寻求了解你、又有丰富经验之人的意见,因为他们可以帮助我们开阔眼界,增广观察的角度。你也要敞开胸襟欢迎新的建议,并乐意考虑是否采用。这样你的计划就会更为稳妥,成功的机会也会更大。

你说话时是多从自己的感觉出发,还是听者的角度考虑?
15:28 义人小心谨慎地回答,恶人的话却往往急切地冲口而出,因为他们不考虑所说的话会有甚么影响。有话应对固然重要,但事先仔细思考也同样重要。你是仔细思索你的话,还是不考虑对他人的影响,只将你的想法脱口而出呢?
