How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

My Sermon Notes from October 17, 2021 Full Text: 路加福音 Luke 12:13-34

13 群眾中有一個人對耶穌說:“老師,請吩咐我的兄弟和我分家業。” 14 耶穌說:“你這個人,誰立我作你們的審判官和分家業的人呢?” 15 於是他對眾人說:“你們要謹慎,遠離一切貪心,因為人的生命並不在於家道豐富。” 16 就對他們講了一個比喻,說:“有一個富翁的田地豐收。 17 他自己心裡說:‘怎麼辦呢?因為我沒有足夠的地方收藏出產了!’ 18 又說:‘我要這樣辦:我要拆掉這些倉房,建造更大的,好在那裡收藏我的一切糧食和貨物。 19 然後,我要對我的靈魂說:靈魂啊,你擁有許多好東西,足夠多年享用,只管安安逸逸地吃喝快樂吧!’ 20  神卻對他說:‘無知的人哪,今天晚上,你的靈魂必被取去,你所預備的要歸給誰呢?’ 21 凡為自己積財,在 神面前卻不富足的,也是這樣。”

22 耶穌又對門徒說:“所以我告訴你們,不要為生命憂慮吃甚麼,也不要為身體憂慮穿甚麼。 23 因為生命比飲食重要,身體比衣服重要。 24 你們想想烏鴉:牠們不種也不收,無倉又無庫, 神尚且養活牠們;你們比飛鳥貴重得多了。 25 你們中間誰能用憂慮使自己的壽命延長一刻呢? 26 既然連這極小的事都不能作,為甚麼還憂慮其他的事呢? 27 你們想想百合花,怎樣不勞苦,也不紡織。但我告訴你們,就是所羅門最榮華的時候所穿的,也比不上這花中的一朵呢。 28 小信的人哪,田野的草,今天還在,明天就投進爐裡, 神尚且這樣給它裝飾,何況你們呢? 29 你們不要求吃甚麼,喝甚麼,也不要憂慮, 30 因為這一切都是世上不信的人所尋求的。你們的父原知道你們需要這一切。 31 你們只管求他的國,這些東西都必加給你們。 32 你們這小群,不要怕,因為你們的父樂意把國賜給你們。 33 當變賣你們所有的施捨給人,為自己製造不朽壞的錢囊,積蓄用不盡的財寶在天上,就是賊不能近、蟲不能蛀的地方。 34 因為你們的財寶在哪裡,你們的心也在哪裡。

13 Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”

14 Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
