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 24, 2021 Full Text: 路加福音 Luke 12:35-48

35 “你們的腰當束起來,燈也該點著, 36 像等候自己的主人從婚筵回來一樣,好叫你們在主人回來敲門時,立刻給他開門。 37 主人來到了,看見僕人警醒,這些僕人就有福了。我實在告訴你們,主人必親自束腰,招待他們吃飯,進前來侍候他們。 38 主人也許半夜之前,或天亮之前回來,看見他們這樣,這些僕人就有福了。 39 你們都知道,家主若曉得竊賊甚麼時候來,就不會讓他摸進屋裡。 40 你們也要準備妥當,因為在想不到的時候,人子就來了。”

41 彼得說:“主啊,你說這比喻,是為我們還是為眾人呢?” 42 主說:“誰是那忠心精明的管家,被主人指派管理家裡的僕人,按時分糧呢? 43 主人來到的時候,看見他這樣作,那僕人就有福了。 44 我實在告訴你們,主人要指派他管理主人的一切財產。 45 如果那僕人心裡說:‘我的主人不會那麼快回來’,就動手打其他的僕人使女,並且吃喝醉酒; 46 在他想不到的日子、不知道的時間,那僕人的主人要來,嚴厲地處罰他,使他和不信的人同在一起。 47 那僕人知道主人的意思,卻不預備,也不照他的意思行,必多受責打; 48 但那不知道的,雖然作了該受責打的事,也必少受責打。多給誰就向誰多取,多託誰就向誰多要。

35 “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak. 39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?”

42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
