God Notices the Grateful Heart

God notices the grateful heart. He took a praise-singing shepherd boy and made him a king.

上帝覺察感謝的心。祂曾經讓一個喜歡唱歌讚美的牧羊人做王。

There’s no hint of God getting out of sorts if we aren’t thankful. But there is evidence that we are affected by our own ingratitude. What of the disastrous days?  The nights I can’t sleep and the hours I can’t rest?  Am I grateful then?  Jesus was.

聖經並沒有說我們若不感謝,神就會不高興。但是卻有證據顯明我們若不懂得感恩,便會受到影響。記得那些痛苦不舒服的日子嗎?那些睡不著,無法休息的夜晚?現在我知道要感恩了嗎?耶穌明白這其中的道理。

The Bible records, “On the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it.”  (I Corinthians 11:23). It’s not often you see the words betrayed and thanks in the same sentence, much less in the same heart. In the midst of the darkest night of the human soul, Jesus found a way to give thanks.

聖經記載:“ 我當日傳給你們的,原是從主領受的,就是主耶穌被賣的那一夜,拿起餅來,祝謝了,就掰開”(林前11:23-24a)。你很難得可以看見被出賣和感謝在同一句話裡(英文是同一句),更不可能在一個心裡知道要被出賣還感謝。在人類最黑暗的靈魂裡,耶穌依然可以感謝。

Anyone can thank God for the light. Jesus teaches us to thank God for the night. He says to us, “You’ll get through this!”  And we will.

人人都可以為了光明而感謝,但是耶穌教導我們,即使在黑夜裡也要感謝。祂對我們說:“你將可以勝過這些。”是的,我們一定會勝過。
