Luke 7:36-50

September - 4

 

 

WHAT DO YOU SEE IN OTHERS?

 

He turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman?” Luke 7:44

 

 

It’s easy to judge people whose lives and circumstances are different from ours. We easily write off people who have political views or who struggle with weaknesses that are different from ours. We find it easier to befriend people who are just like us.

 

That was Simon’s problem.

 

Simon was a very religious person who knew how to throw a great party. As he welcomed Jesus, Simon deliberately overlooked some of the common courtesies that he offered to other guests when they arrived. He offered no water for Jesus to wash with, and no oil to soothe his skin from the harsh effects of sun and wind.

 

A local prostitute came uninvited into the banquet hall. She came to Jesus wanting to be set free from a sinful past. Her tears wetted Jesus feet, so she wiped them with her long hair. Letting her hair down in public was considered a seductive, immoral act in those days. Simon quickly sized up the situation. All he saw were wrong behaviors, not the sinner longing for and receiving forgiveness.

 

Jesus said to Simon, “Do you see this woman?”

 

How about you? Do you see her as a person who is longing and grateful for a new start? What’s your attitude toward people who have been accepted by Jesus and who also need to be accepted by his church?

 

PRAYER

 

Father, forgive us when we judge by appearances. Help us to look deep inside and see how much we have been forgiven. Move us also to accept others in Jesus’ name.

 

路加福音   7:36-50

September - 4

 

 

你在别人身上看到甚么?

 

「转过来向着那女人,便对西门说:『你看见这女人吗?』」 路7:44

 

 

对那些与我们的生活方式和环境不同的人,我们往往容易妄下判语;对那些持不同政治立场或生命中因与我们有不同的软弱而挣扎的人,我们也时常不把他们放在眼里。与趣味相投的人做朋友,毕竟较为容易。

 

西门的问题就在这里。

 

西门是非常虔诚和擅长设宴款待人的。当耶稣来到时,他却没有用招呼客人的一般礼节来招呼耶稣;他没有给耶稣水洗脚,也没有用油抹祂因日晒风吹而受损的皮肤。

 

当地有一个妓女,她不请自来,在宴客的地方出现。她来见耶稣,希望能从过往的罪孽中得到释放。她的眼泪湿了耶稣的脚,就用自己的长发擦干。在那个时代,在公众地方披头散发算是挑逗和不道德的行为,西门立刻对这件事有微言。他眼中只见妇人不当的行为,却没有看到这个渴望罪得赦免的罪人。

 

耶稣便对西门说:「你看见这女人吗?」

 

你呢?你眼中的她,是不是一个渴望和感激有机会改过自新的人呢?对那些已蒙耶稣接纳、但仍需要教会接受的人,你会持甚么态度呢?

祷告

 

父啊,我们单凭外表下判语,求祢赦免。求祢帮助我们看人心深处,又看到我们罪得赦免祢的大恩。求祢感动我们,好叫我们也能奉耶稣的名接纳别人。阿们。
