辯論休妻

馬太福音19: 1_12_辯論休妻

1耶穌說完了這些話,就離開加利利,來到猶太的境界約旦河外。 2 有許多人跟著他,他就在那裡把他們的病人治好了。

3 有法利賽人來,試探耶穌說:「人無論什麼緣故都可以休妻嗎?」 4 耶穌回答說:「那起初造人的,是『造男造女』, 5 並且說:『因此,人要離開父母,與妻子聯合,二人成為一體。』這經你們沒有念過嗎? 6 既然如此,夫妻不再是兩個人,乃是一體的了。所以神配合的,人不可分開。」 7 法利賽人說:「這樣,摩西為什麼吩咐給妻子休書,就可以休她呢?」 8 耶穌說:「摩西因為你們的心硬,所以許你們休妻,但起初並不是這樣。 9 我告訴你們,凡休妻另娶的,若不是為淫亂的緣故,就是犯姦淫了;有人娶那被休的婦人,也是犯姦淫了。」 10 門徒對耶穌說:「人和妻子既是這樣,倒不如不娶。」 11 耶穌說:「這話不是人都能領受的,唯獨賜給誰,誰才能領受。 12 因為有生來是閹人,也有被人閹的,並有為天國的緣故自閹的。這話誰能領受就可以領受。」

這是一個引起人爭執不休的問題,至於為何會爭論不休,我想是那些想離婚又想為自己的離婚合埋化的人吧。因為不想離婚的人對這事根本沒興趣。

主耶穌指出兩個事實:一,婚姻是神所配合,男女二人成為一體。連體嬰可以開刀分開,夫妻卻無法開刀,因為是一體。神眼中的一體。所以你看那些離婚的人,個個災情慘重,即使為了小三或小王而離的,下場也很少有美滿的。因為一體分開實在不可收拾。小孩的受傷更影響他們的一輩子。

Sometimes God Blesses Us In Spite Of Us, Not Because Of Us

Hi GAMErs,

Today’s passage is 2 Kings 15:13-26.  Let’s go!

On verses 13-26:  In Israel, Shallum had killed Zechariah to become king. Then a month later Menahem kills Shalum to become king.  After Menahem reigns for 10 years, his son Pekahiah takes over only to be killed and succeeded 2 years later by Pekah.

What can we learn from this?  Sedition — that is, rebelling against God-given authority — may seem like an easy shortcut to power.  But a kingdom built on sedition will not last very long.  If you try to build a kingdom on sedition, chances are good that your kingdom will also be supplanted and brought down by the seditious acts of others.

Praise God that whereas Satan’s kingdom was built on sedition, the kingdom of heaven is built not on sedition but on servanthood.  The kingdom of God is not a top down organization, but a bottom up organization where the greatest leaders are also the humblest servants.
