《荒漠甘泉》2月15日


  “不要…心怀不平。”(诗篇三十七篇1节)

  不要冒火,抱不平。我们常见作恶者穿了紫色细麻布的长袍,终日宴乐,凡事顺利。“恶人。”(诗篇九十二篇七节)执掌大权,欺压不幸的人们。犯罪的男女享受安逸骄奢的生活,因此好人常会冒火,抱不平。

  可是经上说:“不要…心怀不平。”不要冒火!把火气冷下去!即使你的冒火是很有理由的,但是也不是一个聪明的办法。不平只会起摩擦,(一种冲突);不平不能变成和平。一部火车的车轴如果发热了,并不能帮助火车前进;它们的发热只能产生障碍。车轴发热的缘故,乃是为了不必需的摩擦;我们应该让神用他的恩膏涂在我们不平的地方,以免生出轧折来。

  心中怀了不平,就会有许多尖锐锋利的砂粒——急躁,恼恨,嫉妒,无礼等——嵌进来,叫你失去生活中谦和的香气。摩擦生热,热后就会发生最危险的破坏。所以不要怀抱不平。让神的圣膏油使你平滑罢;否则,恐怕因着冒火的缘故,你自己就会列在做恶者之中了。——译自《银亲》

 

 

Streams In the Desert for Feb. 15

 

“Fret not thyself.” (Psalm 37:1.)

 

DO not get into a perilous heat about things. If ever heat were justified, it was surely justified in the circumstances outlined in the Psalm. Evil-doers were moving about clothed in purple and fine linen, and faring sumptuously every day. “Workers of iniquity” were climbing into the supreme places of power, and were tyrannizing their less fortunate brethren. Sinful men and women were stalking through the land in the pride of life and basking in the light and comfort of great prosperity, and good men were becoming heated and fretful.

 

“Fret not thyself.” Do not get unduly heated! Keep cool! Even I;n a good cause, fretfulness is not a wise help-meet. Fretting only heats the bearings; it does not generate the steam. It is no help to a train for the axles to get hot; their heat is only a hindrance. When the axles get heated, it is because of unnecessary friction; dry surfaces are grinding together, which ought to be kept in smooth co-operation by a delicate cushion of oil.

 

And is it not a suggestive fact that this word “fret” is closely akin to the word “friction,” and is an indication of absence of the anointing oil of the grace of God?

 

In fretfulness, a little bit of grit gets into the bearings-some slight disappointment, some ingratitude, some discourtesy-and the smooth working of the life is checked. Friction begets heat; and with the heat, most dangerous conditions are created.

 

Do not let thy bearings get hot. Let the oil of the Lord keep thee cool, lest by reason of an unholy heat thou be reckoned among the evil-doers. – The Silver Lining.

 

Dear restless heart, be still; don’t fret and worry so; God has a thousand ways His love and help to show; Just trust, and trust, and trust, until His will you know.

 

Dear restless heart, be still, for peace is God’s own smile, His love can every wrong and sorrow reconcile; Just love, and love, and love, and calmly wait awhile.

 

Dear restless heart, be brave; don’t moan and sorrow so, He hath a meaning kind in chilly winds that blow; Just hope, and hope, and hope, until you braver grow.

 

Dear restless heart, repose upon His breast this hour, His grace is strength and life, His love is bloom and flower; Just rest, and rest, and rest, within His tender power.

 

Dear restless heart, be still! Don’t struggle to be free; God;s life is in your life, from Him you may not flee; Just pray, and pray, and pray, till you have faith to see.
--- Edith Willis Linn.
