如何真正理解别人、与大家和睦相处呢? 了解一个人的内心需要我们放下自己的身段,尊重对方,才能触及到对方心里真正所想的东西。放下自己的身段,就是要做到拥有谦卑的心,将他人放在高处。

腓立比书 2:3-4  凡事不可结党,不可贪图虚浮的荣耀,只要存心谦卑,各人看别人比自己强各人不要单顾自己的事,也要顾别人的事。

相反,若以高傲的视角审视别人,我们则很难看清事物真正的一面。时间久了,我们就会习惯性地自满,并且瞧不起别人。更糟糕的是,我们还会在不经意间伤害到别人的心灵,影响到大家的和睦团结。

所以,只有谦卑能够为我们打开别人心灵的窗户,让我们走近对方、爱护对方。若能做到这一点,每个人都将相互服侍、牺牲。

谦卑——上帝的子女必备的品质

歌罗西书 3:12-14  所以,你们既是神的选民、圣洁蒙爱的人,就要存怜悯、恩慈、谦虚、温柔、忍耐的心。倘若这人与那人有嫌隙,总要彼此包容,彼此饶恕;主怎样饶恕了你们,你们也要怎样饶恕人。在这一切之外,要存着爱心,爱心就是联络全德的。

作为上帝的子女,我们必须怀有同情、善良、谦卑、温柔和耐心。要想谦卑,我们首先应该降低自己。至高的上帝为了给我们榜样,降低了自己来到肉身的世界,作为“服侍的人”竭尽全力地拯救我们。因此,我们应当跟从上帝的脚步,永远以谦虚的心来尊重、服侍别人。

How can we truly understand others and live in harmony with everyone? ‘Understand’ is a combination of the words ‘under’ and ‘stand’. When we stand under someone, we come to look up to and respect them. To truly understand others, we have to consider others better than ourselves.

Philippians 2:3-4  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

On the contrary, if we stand over others, thinking that we are better than them, we cannot understand them. Then, how can we become one? We may even come to look down on others, hurting others without even knowing it.

Thus, only when we are humble, can we understand all things and give love to everyone. In such a place, everyone will serve and sacrifice for one another.

Humility—a trait God’s children must have

Colossians 3:12-14  Therefore, as God’s chosen people,  clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another  Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

As the children of God, we must embrace compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. To have humility in us, we should lower ourselves. Let us remember that God Most High came as the “One who serves”, and made all His efforts to save us, taking the nature of a servant. Following the example of God, let us always respect and serve others with a humble heart.
