当继续“看别人比自己强”还是当说“主啊,我在这里。”?

一位弟兄在评论我上次的日记分享时,向我提出了这么一个问题:当继续“看别人比自己强”还是当说“主啊,我在这里。”?

其实,我也一至在思考这么一个问题。今早一梦醒来,又有感动要写下来。这个梦是这样的。广场上聚集着很多人,在宣布同学聚会的消息。我在不断的掌声和呼喊声中东张西望。我远远看见辛城教会的传道人Mary与少数的一些人坐在远处。我含泪向她走去,她的脸开始变年轻。梦醒后,想还是应该把写的东西继续与大家分享。

说句心里话,每次看到文章后面的那张像片时,我就会情不自禁地想起那段美好的时光。像片记载了老中青三代人在一起同工的喜乐。每个人脸上都挂着灿烂的微笑。那时神迹奇事也常伴随我们。豪哥的癌症得医治,美华姐进入团队事奉 (我感觉美华姐现在的笑跟那时的笑是很不一样的)。我爸妈受洗成为神的儿女。我发表了第一篇开创性的论文。那时好多人愿意参加同工会,人多得要在餐厅里开会。我看见神的美意是要将教会建在每一个人的心里,让大家都有参与的意愿。

可是,有的人看到的是人的能力,以为要是我们有一位优秀的大有能力的牧师,我们就能出埃及进入迦南地。我选择了“看别人比自己强”。可是看到的是C, A, H, X, X, 等等相继离开教会。后来有机会跟他们之中的一些人聊天,得知离开教会的原因之一是,“去教会感觉压力大。有些人在台上台下,看起来是大有能力,我却什么能力也没有。拿什么来事奉神呢?” 啊,原来如此。难怪圣经说,“我要灭绝智慧人的智慧,废弃聪明人的聪明。”

虽说我们都是基督徒,但是去教会的目的可能不一样。耶稣说,“凡劳苦担重担的人,可以到我这里来,我就使他们得安息。我心里柔和谦卑,你们当负我的轭,学我的样式,这样,你们心里就必得享安息。”对我来说,上教会就是要将一周的劳苦重担交给神,到神面前来充电,平平安安,欢欢喜喜地回到家里,去从新开始新的一周的生活。不知从什么时候开始,那份平安和喜乐被愁烦取代了。

Happy Time

Who can exactly control the weather? | 谁能控制天晴下雨?

He passed away. He left behind his three children and his wife, his invention and patents, his company, his dream to open a factory in China, and many unfinished things. I couldn’t help bursting into tear when I heard his son long to play a basketball game with him. I believe he has fallen asleep in Jesus after I heard his wife’s testimony about how he accepted Jesus as his savior.

For several days, it was rainy. It seemed that God was sharing sorrow with the family who lost their beloved one. On Friday morning, it became sunny. I thought it was God’s mercy. But I heard the thunder storm, and heavy rain hit the roof like sounding trumpet when the funeral service was going on. At the right end of the funeral service, the rain stopped and it became sunny. We carried his coffin on a hearse. We followed the hearse to his tomb. Right after we carried his coffin to the shelter of his tomb, it started to rain again. Who controlled the weather so exactly that his coffin did not catch a drop of rain?

When his coffin was about to close, his wife noticed that his watch stopped working. What an unbelievable thing!

他走了,走得那么匆忙。留下了三个未成家的孩子和妻子,留下了他的发明和专利,留下了他的公司,留下了去中国开工厂的理想,。。。。。。留下了许许多多的不舍 。当他的儿子说到多想他爸能陪他打一次蓝球时,我的鼻子发酸了。当他的妻子回忆他如何信耶稣得永生的过程,我相信他已在耶稣里睡了。

连续几天下雨,好像是天与人同哀。可是送他的那天早上阳光明媚。我心中感谢神的怜悯。可是当葬礼在进行时,我听见轰隆的雷声,看见刺眼的闪电。暴雨打在屋顶上,好像是有人在敲锣打鼓。然而当葬礼结束时,明媚的阳光又出来了。车队缓缓地驶向墓地。我们刚把棺木抬进墓地的临时帐篷里,天又下起了雨。

总之,那天一会儿下雨一会儿天晴。每次当我们要抬他的棺木的时候,天就晴, 好像是经过精确的计算。谁能这样精确地控制天晴下雨呢?当要盖棺的时候,他妻子注意到他的手表突然停摆了。 世上那有这样的巧合!

The couple defeated cancers

Thank God for giving me the privilege to introduce Uncle Reggie, our English speaker on the coming Sunday.

Time is flying. The first time when I met Uncle Reggie was about 10 years ago. On Friday evenings, he came to the campus of the University of Cincinnati to pick up my eldest daughter to the Youth Fellowship at Cincinnati Chinese Christian Church. This Youth Fellowship produces missionaries all around the world and students at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Johns Hopkins and other top American universities.

The first impression which I have about Uncle Reggie is that he likes to laugh and laugh loudly. He always smiles. When he suffered from cancer, it did not stop him from laughing. He did not stop laughing even when the chemotherapy made his wife’s hair disappear. It is a miracle that the couple has defeated cancers.

The second impression is that he is so humble. Although he is a professor, he often sits there to listen to the Youth to teach him Bible and stands among the crowd to talk about Jesus and make jokes with people. He often picks up students or visiting Chinese scholars at airports and on campus for church and shopping. But he seldom makes public speech at church. So for quite a while, I did not know he is the co-founding elder of the Cincinnati Chinese Christian Church.

Although he holds many public tiles such as the Director of Neonatology and Associate Chairman of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, the President of the American College of Nutrition, he has cofounded Medical Service International (MSI) and went to poor countryside in China to provide free medical service. He organizes VBS (Vacation Bible Study) to tell kids interesting missionary stories every summer. He leads the Youth to missionary trips in Thailand every year.

The third impression is he lives in a simple life. In US, a pediatrician earns a lot of money. But they live in a small house in a poor neighborhood. He drove an old red SUV. He said SUV is convenient to help people to move stuff. However, under his leadership, the Cincinnati Chinese Christian Church has built a new building worthy of nearly 3 million dollars in Mason, a rich neighborhood.

The fourth impression is his humor sense. Many Christians are very serious. But he likes to play with kids and make friends and jokes with kids. I asked my second daughter if she remembers Uncle Reggie after 6 years. She answered, “Yes, of course. His missionary stories are interesting and never end.”

Welcome to see what story he is going to tell us on the coming Sunday.

一想起就泪流满面

大约三十年前的一天,老师对她说,如果明天不交书本费,就不准进教室。那时真是穷啊,连不到五元钱的书本费(只相当于一美元)都交不出来。又正值分田到户,家里缺劳动力。 重男轻女的祖母正好顺水推舟。从此她和另一个妹妹就先后失学了。

大约两年后,上海招女童工。姐妹俩去了上海。正在外地读书的我,以为她们就象“包身工”那样受着资本家暗无天日的剥削和压迫。极力主张她们回家学一门技艺。又一次断送了她们的前程。也成为我一生中最懊悔的一件事。一想起这些事情我就泪流满面。

昨晚得知她去广东创业,在广东省江门市新会家具一条街紫华路18号(邮码529000)经营《金盛古典红木家具》。自责,内疚和无奈之情`油然而生。自责的是自己拼命要往外走,为什么当时没有鼓励她们留在上海。内疚的是几十年来,没有能体会她们心中的伤痛。无奈的是帮不了她们什么忙。

在此恳求有需要的读者能惠顾她的生意。她的名字叫匡月珍。电话是18029619566。部分样品照片放在Product Sample Images 样品相片

求你指教我们怎样数算自己的日子,好叫我们得着智慧的心。

在上个月,两位朋友因病先后离开了这个世界。一位是在中国当教师。另一位是在美国当教授。在他们走之前,我被梦中的启示感动而与他们通过电话。

在与中国那位的交谈中,他的幽默风趣和惊人的记忆力令我佩服得不得了。他由于身体的原因多次被拒于大学门外,后来他爸写信给当时的省委书记。在省委书记的特批下得以上大学。他当时跟我讲,“如果不上大学,就心甘情愿去学做衣服,说不好现在成了服装设计大师或服装厂的大老板。”当然,他也为自己能从一个小镇调到上海工作而感到骄傲和满足。他更为自己曾暗恋的那位同学每逢他生日时能给他发个短信而高兴。他充满深情地回忆了参加她婚礼的情景。他回忆了自己作为摄影爱好者在大学乐于助人的情景。 我保留有他摄的相片。他跟我讲了很多我已忘记的大学里的人和事。最后他跟我讲他与病魔斗争的第一个五年计划,并充满希望地说,不要到时”遥知兄弟登高处,遍插茱萸少一人。”

当我打电话给在美国的那位教授时,他的夫人接了电话。她含泪却坚定地说,“他能挺过这一关。”后来当他打电话给我时,由于正在开车未接。到家后再打回去,他未接。此事成为终生遗憾。

人生就有这许多的无奈。就像神人摩西所说,“主阿,你世世代代作我们的居所。 诸山未曾生出,地与世界你未曾造成,从亘古到永远,你是神。 你使人归于尘土,说,你们世人要归回。 在你看来,千年如已过的昨日,又如夜间的一更。 你叫他们如水冲去。他们如睡一觉。早晨他们如生长的草。 早晨发芽生长,晚上割下枯干。 我们因你的怒气而消灭,因你的忿怒而惊惶。 你将我们的罪孽摆在你面前,将我们的隐恶摆在你面光之中。 我们经过的日子,都在你震怒之下。我们度尽的年岁好像一声叹息。 我们一生的年日是七十岁。若是强壮可到八十岁。但其中所矜夸的,不过是劳苦愁烦。转眼成空,我们便如飞而去。 谁晓得你怒气的权势?谁按着你该受的敬畏晓得你的忿怒呢? 求你指教我们怎样数算自己的日子,好叫我们得着智慧的心。 耶和华阿,我们要等到几时呢?求你转回,为你的仆人后悔。 求你使我们早早饱得你的慈爱,好叫我们一生一世欢呼喜乐。 求你照着你使我们受苦的日子,和我们遭难的年岁,叫我们喜乐。 愿你的作为向你仆人显现。愿你的荣耀向他们子孙显明。 愿主我们神的荣美,归于我们身上。愿你坚立我们手所作的工。我们手所作的工,愿你坚立。”

朋友,珍惜神给我们的每一天吧!

The turtle is awaken

One of our friends gave a turtle to our youngest daughter about half a year ago. Her interest in it had lasted only for one or two days. One day it stopped eating and fallen into sleep. I was worried that it was going to die. My daughter told me, “It is going to hibernate.” I was worried if it could survive the warm indoor environment. I suggested we should release it. But our daughter insisted keeping it at home. In today’s morning when I saw it stick out of its long neck, I was full of joy. This is a sign of spring. This is a sign of a renewed life. Thank God for the winter, the white snow teaches me what purity means. Thank God for the winter, the cold weather teaches me to cherish the pleasant and warm spring. God teaches a turtle to protect itself in a harsh winter time. For sure God teaches us to protect us. God said to Jonah in Jonah 4:10-11, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”

Yes, God has “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Wish you a Merry Christmas!

“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means “God with us.”  Mathew1:23『必有童女、怀孕生子、人要称他的名为以马内利。』(以马内利翻出来、就是 神与我们同在。)

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ” John3:16 神爱世人、甚至将他的独生子赐给他们、叫一切信他的、不至灭亡、反得永生。
