A Place at God’s Table

God gives hope!  So what if someone was born thinner or stronger? Why count diplomas or compare resumes? What does it matter if they have a place at the head table?  You have a place at God’s table—and He’s filling your cup to overflowing!

上帝賜下希望!若是有人一出生就比較瘦弱或是比較強壯,那有什麼關係呢?為何要數算你的證書或學位呢?若有人總是坐在宴席首位,那有什麼關係呢?因為在神的桌子上,必然有你的位置,祂必使你福杯滿溢!

The overflowing cup was a powerful symbol in the days of David. As long as the host kept the cup full, the guest knew he was welcome. When the cup sat empty, the host was hinting that the hour was late. On those occasions when the host really enjoyed the company of the person, he filled the cup to overflowing; he kept pouring until the liquid ran over the edge of the cup and down on the table.

在大衛王的時代,杯子滿溢是一個很有力的記號,只要主人繼續斟滿你的杯子,就表示你仍然受歡迎。若是沒有人來斟滿你的杯子,杯子空了,那便是主人在暗示,是客人該離去的時候了。倘若主人非常喜歡某位客人,便會一直為他續杯,讓他的杯子滿溢。他會一直往那位客人的杯子倒飲料,直到杯子滿溢,甚至流到桌上。

Have you noticed how wet your table is? God wants you to stay. Your cup overflows with joy. Overflows with grace. Shouldn’t your heart overflow with gratitude?

你可曾注意到你的桌子都被弄濕了?上帝希望你留下來。你的喜樂之杯滿溢,恩典也滿溢。你的心豈不也應當感謝滿溢嗎?
