感謝生命中遇到這種小人, 使我更渴望成為君子

"十五年來, 有位前輩處處打壓自己, 每天卻都要碰到, 因為他, 我不敢陷入低潮, 天天都很積極, 特別認真教書, 還寫了四十幾本書.  他喜歡演講, 愛搶位子, 我更努力演講, 更熱心公益.  他總是逼我放棄, 我卻堅持發光發熱.  他處心積慮阻擋我的升遷, 斷絕我的機會, 卻始終無法阻止我認真打拼.  感謝生命中遇到這種小人, 它使我更渴望成為君子"–東海大學社會工作系副教授 彭懷真
 
無意間在閱讀時看到這段文字, 令蘇姍很有感觸, 心裡有感覺, 卻因人文素養低落, 難以筆墨文字表達出來, 往往是在看到別人寫的文字後, 很有同感, 以轉載的方式來表達, 我想狹窄的心胸裝不下真正的喜樂, 寬闊的心境卻能引來無限的平安.
 
For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.–1 Peter 2:15-16
 
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.–1 Peter 2:23-25
 
"Whoever would love life
      and see good days
   must keep his tongue from evil
      and his lips from deceitful speech. 
 He must turn from evil and do good;
      he must seek peace and pursue it. 
 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
      and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
   but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened." But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. –1 Peter 3:10-16

成為基督徒從未附帶免於痛苦孤單的特權, 豈不知各樣的苦難都是化裝的祝福? 惟有逆旅中的躑躅才能體會祂無處不在的陪伴, 也唯有創傷時的疼痛, 才能經歷祂無可比擬的平安.  倘若選擇平順就意味少一點經歷祂, 我寧願選擇風雨中與祂結伴同行–余遠淳

相信每個人身上的難處, 都有上帝另一種祝福
