38个无名之辈閱读38个名字 38 NAMELESS PEOPLE

38个无名之辈閱读38个名字

 

「守门的:沙龙的子孙、亚特的子孙、达们的子孙、亚谷的子孙、哈底大的子孙,朔拜的子孙。」 尼7:45

 

 

这並非一般的灵修经文內容:除了38个名字之外,便再沒有其他特別的內容了。我们通常都会略过这些名字,或留待「他日再作深入研究」。

 

可是,在某一个清晨,当我们38个来自邻近地区、街头和教会,以及「被遗棄者之家」的人,一起朗读这些名字时,我发现了一件事,原来我们已经一起逐节逐节朗读整本圣经达六年之久。

 

在我们第六次閱读圣经时,我还以为我们会略过历代志上和尼希米记所记载的上千个名字。对於这个想法,有人喝采,亦有人不满。但最后,我们这些不知名的小人物,始终不希望略过圣经中任何一个名字,免得神认为也可以略过我们的名字。一位露宿街头的弟兄說:「祂大概是唯一把我们当作是人,对其他人来說,我们只是『一群流浪汉』。所以,我们不应该略过圣经中任何一个名字。我们也不希望祂略过我们的名字,对吗?」

 

为了尊重神,尊重已离世的人,尊重那些在我们以后来到世上的人,以及互相尊重,让我们把这些名字再读一遍。哈底大和朔拜,还有其他人,都是有价值的人。

 

祷告

 

天父,感谢祢赐给我们话语和其中记载的许多人的名字。让我们明白,祢也知道我们的名字,而且我们也受到尊重。奉耶稣名求,阿们。

 

38 NAMELESS PEOPLE READING 38 NAMES

 

The gatekeepers: the descendants of Shallum, Ater, Talmon, Akkub, Hatita, and Shobai. Nehemiah 7:45

 

 

This is not the usual kind of Scripture reading for devotions: 38 names and not much else to go along with them. Usually we skip over such names or reserve them for "some other time when we'll do an intensive study of them.”

 

But early one morning 38 of us from the neighborhood, the streets, the church, and "abandominiums” read these names out loud, and something came out of it. We've been reading the entire Bible together out loud, verse by verse, for six years.

 

On our sixth circuit through the Bible, I had thought we might want to skip the thousand or so names in 1 Chronicles and Nehemiah. There were some cheers about this idea but also some groans. It came out that we nameless nobodies, by and large, didn't want to skip any name in the Bible lest God think it OK to skip our names. One homeless brother said, "He's about the only one who recognizes us as people. To others we are GHS's: 'generic homeless stereotypes.' No, we shouldn't skip any name in God's Word. We don't want him to skip over us, do we?”

 

To honor God, to honor those who have gone before us and who will come after us, and to honor each other, let's read that list of names again. Hatita and Shobai do have a good ring to them, along with the all the others.

 

PRAYER

 

Father in heaven, thank you for your Word to us with its many names of so many people. It helps us know that you know our names too, and we are honored. In Jesus,Amen.
