If we consider the unblushing promises of reward 诚然当我们仔细查考福音书中 Promised in the Gospels 不讳言地记载有关奖赏的应许 And the astonishing nature of humans 还有其中所包含的惊人本质的时候 It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong 恐怕我们的主会认为我们所想得到 It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong 所渴望的那一份胃口 But too weak 不但不够大 And too small 而且未免也太小了 We are half hearted creatures 我们真是一群漫不经心的族类 Although there are boundless blessings to be rewarded us 尽管有无限的福乐要赏赐给我们 We fool about with food, entertainment and drink 我们却只会呆呆地追求吃喝玩乐 Or ambition 或者所谓雄心大志之类的事情 We are like an ignorant child 正如一个无知的小孩 Who wants to go on making mud pies 只想在脏乱的贫民窟 In a slum 继续地玩耍泥土 Because he cannot imagine what is meant by 而对于人家所提供 The offer of a holiday at sea 他到海边渡假的乐趣 The offer of a holiday at sea 一点也无法想象 We are far too easily pleased 我们实在太容易满足了 Do you know what?

Instead, in their present situation 上帝反而是在当下的处境当中 God leads them and accompanies them through it 带领他们 陪伴他们去渡过 You know that sometimes, maybe for someone 你知道有的时候你也许为某一个人 The people around you 在你身边的那些人 You have been praying for change for a long time 你甚至一直为他的改变 You can't take it anymore 你祷告了很久 你快受不了了 But maybe God does not want to change him 但也许上帝要改变的其实不是他 Maybe it's you who God wants to change 上帝也许要改变你 So, I think in the second point 所以我想在第二点 Let me share with everyone further 我另外讲跟大家再深入分享 In our current situation 我们在现在的处境当中 We need to lay a foundation with self control and discipline 我们需要用节制与纪律打稳基础 And use our expertise to strive for excellence in our current position 在现有的位置与专业上精益求精 Discipline and self control 节制跟纪律 They are very important for laying our foundation 是一个打基础非常重要 They cannot be ignored 没有办法忽视的 And we have to use our expertise 然后我们要精益求精 To strive for excellence 我们要做到卓越绝对不是以后 It's not that we wait until God calls us to a position 等我到了上帝呼召我的位子 No 不是 God's calling for us is right now 上帝呼召你呼召我就是在现在 It's different from what we may have imagined 跟我想象中的不一样 It may seem meaningless 我觉得这个好像没有意义
22:39
We are waiting to see how God leads us 我们等着上帝祂要怎么带领 We have to strive for excellence in our current position 我们必须在现在的位子跟专业上面 Using our expertise 精益求精 We know that in the Bible 你知道在圣经里面 There was a young man named Daniel 有一个年轻人叫做但以理 Daniel's country was conquered by Babylon 但以理他在他们的国家 Daniel's country was conquered by Babylon 被巴比伦所灭 Babylon took the elites, especially the young and talented people 所以巴比伦把他们国家里面的 Babylon took the elites, especially the young and talented people 那些精英 特别一些的青年才俊 To the Babylonian palace 来俘虏到巴比伦皇宫里面去 To let them be reformed, educated 来让他们接受一个改造的一个教育 To make them become people who work for the king of Babylon 为了是要让他们成为 To make them become people who work for the king of Babylon 一个能够为着巴比伦王国来效力的 Such precious talent like this 这样的一个宝贵的人才 What does the Book of Daniel say? 那圣经怎么说 在但以理书 说
23:43
Do you know what? In this kind of situation 你知道吗 在这样的一个状况里面 Actually, Daniel was in a good position 其实但以理他到一个很好的位子 He was in the palace 他在王宫里面 And he was in a higher position than most of his people 而且他比他同族人都高人一等 He could eat the same food as the king 他有王这些的膳食 That was excellent, wasn't it? 非常的优渥 不是吗 But Daniel refused 但是 但以理他拒绝了 He was eligible to receive it, but didn't want it 他理所当然得到 但他不要了 I want to say that is self control 我要说的是往往这个节制 From the things we are eligible to receive 可以从我们本来应该可以的 Those good things 那些很好的事物开始 We choose to make a different decision 我选择做一个不一样的决定 You know that the environment I grew up in 你知道在我所成长的环境里面 Actually, my parents 其实我的父母 They also educated me in this way 也是用这样的一个方式在教育我 And the finance industry I'm working in 而我现在所服务的一个这样的 And the finance industry I'm working in 在金融业里面 Of course, I think I'm blessed 那当然我是一个我觉得蛮蒙福的 God has given me a very good position 神给我到一个很好的位子上面 You know that among my peers 你知道我旁边的这些的同侪 I see these many friends of mine 我看到交往的这些的很多的朋友 Actually, they are living in luxury 其实他们过得很优渥 From their food 从他们的饮食 And their cars 从他们所用的他们车子 The houses they live in 他们所住的房子 And the destinations they travel to in other countries 他们出国的一些地点等等
24:44
They are all very good 都非常的好 But you know, in this kind of environment 但你知道在这样的环境当中 Gradually 无形当中 You will be affected by this atmosphere and peer pressure 你其实会被这样的一个氛围 You will be affected by this atmosphere and peer pressure 这样一个同侪的压力 You will be affected by this atmosphere and peer pressure 你会被影响 You know, when we think 你知道当我们如果说 This is not bad 觉得这也没什么不好 I'm ok with it. I can afford to enjoy it 我也都ok 我可以享受得起 Or I will strive for a little bit more 或者我就争取多一点 You know this will affect our values 你知道这个会影响到我们的价值观 This may make us spend more effort 这个也会让我也许花更多的心力 In pursuing enjoyment 在想要去追求这样一个享受 You know our direction 你知道我们的一个方向 And our focus will be affected 跟我们一些的重点就会受到影响 Actually, in this aspect 其实我也会在这方面 In the clothes I wear 我很刻意的在我所穿的衣服 The house I live in and the car I drive 在我所住的房子 在我所用的车子 My travel destinations 在我们在旅游的地点 The hotels I stay in 所住宿的地方等等 I try to practice self control 我会刻意的来操练节制 I purposely practice self control 刻意操练节制 This has also influenced and blessed my children greatly 这个也非常影响也祝福到我的孩子 When they started to become independent 当他们可以开始要自立 And started to organize their own lives 开始要在外面打理自己生活的时候 They weren't bound by a luxurious environment and enjoyment of the past 他就不会被过去的一些的 They weren't bound by a luxurious environment and enjoyment of the past 很优渥环境的一些享受所绑住
25:46
You know that when we practice self control 你知道当我们操练这个节制的时候 That can help us 可以帮助 Especially when we experience some difficulties 特别当我们在一些困难的时候 Or when we feel financial pressure 或者财务被挤压的时候 We won't feel that it is so hard 我们就不会觉得那样的一个辛苦 Or that we can't get through it 那样的过不去 And when everything is going smoothly in life 而且或者在我一切都很顺利的时候 I won't spend too much effort on those things 我不会有太多的心思在追求那些 That actually aren't very meaningful 其实不太有意义的事物上面 You know in the Book of Galatians, chapter five, verses 22 to 23 你知道在加拉太书5章22 23节 Here it talks about the fruits of the Holy Spirit 这边讲到圣灵的一个果子 Self control is the last one 节制是最后一个 That is a conclusion 就是一个总结 You know in these 你知道这里面 Every one of them is gained through practice 每一个都是操练而来的 Love, love is not only a natural feeling 爱 爱不是自然的感觉 Love is a decision 爱是我就是决定 It's a conscious decision 一个意志上面的一个决定 Joy, it's not when I feel happy and everything is going smoothly 喜乐 不是我觉得快乐很顺利 Then I am joyful, no 我才会快乐 不是 Rather, I am joyful in all circumstances 喜乐是在各样的处境当中 I decide to have a joyful attitude 我决定有一个喜乐的态度 Peace, in chaos I have peace 和平 纷乱里面我有一个平安
26:47

Will that happen naturally? 要连着祂结出 自然就结出 No, that connection comes from effort 没有 那是努力的连结的 That's a process that requires waiting 那是有一个过程的需要等待的 Do you know, after self-control 你知道吗 其实在这个节制之后 There needs to be discipline 还要有一个纪律 Decisions need to be made again and again 不断地 一次又一次的决定 To practice 要去练习
27:47
Paul said it in First Corinthians 在保罗在哥林多前书这边说 Even for a competition that people quickly forget about 即使为了一个其实很快世人 Even for a competition that people quickly forget about 就会淡忘的这样的一个锦标 For a medal 这样的一个奖牌 They will try their best 他们都会竭尽全力去努力 They will keep practicing 去操练不断去锻炼的 Let alone this everlasting 更何况这个是永不朽坏的 This is what we have to win 这是我们要所赢得的 Maybe you will say, how come? 也许你说 怎么会是这个样子 Don't forget this is from the Bible 不要忘记这是圣经所说的 We have to win this 我们要去赢得的 God has saved this kind of crown for us 神有把一个这样的桂冠 God has saved this kind of crown for us 这样的一个冠冕为我们所存留的 He hopes that we 祂希望我们 We need to win it 而且我们要赢得 You may ask if you have to suffer 你说 那我要很苦对不对 No, because the Holy Spirit leads us 不会 因为圣灵祂要带领我们
28:48
There will be a process of practice 会有这个锻炼的一个过程 But I believe that 但是我相信 We need to have a goal 我们要有这样的一个目标 It requires self control 它需要透过节制 It requires discipline to lay the foundation 它需要透过纪律来打基础 You know that in the Bible 你知道在圣经里面 There was another man named David 另外有一个人叫做大卫 I believe everyone is very familiar with him 我相信大家都很熟悉他 David, before he became king 大卫其实他的本业在成为君王之前 He was a shepherd 他是一个牧羊人 David's father Jesse 那个时候大卫他因为他的父亲耶西 Asked him to go to where King Saul's army was 叫他去扫罗王的军队里面 To visit his three brothers 去探望他三个哥哥 Because he wanted to know how they were doing 因为他不知道他们最近状况怎么样 And he went to the army's camp 他就到了军营里面 He found they were facing the Philistines 发现他们正面对非利士人 There was shouting 对他们一个叫阵 It was a great threat 很大的一个威胁 The Philistines sent a giant 那时候非利士人派了一个大巨人 Named Goliath 那个巨人叫歌利亚 He was three meters tall and the armor he wore 他身高三米 他身上穿的那个盔甲 The bronze helmet weighed nearly 60 kilograms 他那个铜盔就重达将近六十公斤 He was very powerful 非常孔武有力 And he shouted and provoked the Israelite army 他就对着这些以色列的军队 No one dared to fight him 来叫阵 来挑衅 没有人敢去迎击 But David said, "How could this be?" 但大卫他说 怎么可以这样
29:49
"How could he insult" 你怎么可以来侮辱 "How could he shout at the army of the eternal God?" 你怎么可以这样子来对着 "How could he shout at the army of the eternal God?" 那个永生神的这样一个军队来叫阵 "I will fight him" 我要跟来跟他对阵 When Saul heard this, he asked to see David 那时候扫罗听见了就把大卫找来 In First Samuel, what does it say? 撒母耳记上这边怎么说 Sometimes 有时候喔 You know, this means it was not only once 你知道 代表这不是只有一次 Every time, again and again 每一次 一次又一次 What did David do? 但是大卫怎么样 He fought those beasts 他就去跟着这些的猛兽去对战 He was a shepherd 他是一个牧羊人 I think his skills didn't suddenly appear 我想这个身手绝对不是 I think his skills didn't suddenly appear 突然之间有的 And the Bible doesn't record that 圣经也没有记载 David was born a powerful man 大卫他从小生出来 David was born a powerful man 就是一个很孔武有力的人 No 没有 Why was David like that? 大卫为什么会是这样子 Because of his expertise 因为他对他的专业 His attitude and the task that he was entrusted with 他在的态度 他被托付的任务
30:51
He was very responsible 他非常的尽责 If a beast came 如果有这些野兽来 And took one of his sheep, he would chase after it 牠衔了一只羊羔 他就追出去 Maybe other shepherds would say 也许别的牧羊人会说 It's too scary, it's impossible, or 好可怕 不可能 或者说 Only one was taken 只有一只被抓走 It's ok, I still have a flock 还有一群没关系 My father won't blame me for this 我的父亲不会跟我计较 Or in our workplaces, we say something is too difficult 或者在职场上面我说 这个太难 It is not part of my job description 这个超过我的职务被赋予的 I'm off work now 这个其实我现在下班了 And I don't get paid that much 我薪水也没有拿那么多 Or, the company has a lot of money anyway 或者 公司反正很有钱 It's ok, it's only a bit more expensive, it doesn't matter, whatever 这个贵一点也没有关系 随便 Do you know? 你知道吗 How do we face the things we are entrusted with? 我们在我们所被托付的事情上面 How do we face the things we are entrusted with? 我们怎么样去面对 How do we react to them? 我们怎么样去回应 And it makes a difference 就带来一个极为不同的一个分野 A few months ago 几个月前 I was at a coffee shop chain 我到一个咖啡的一个连锁店 I ordered a meal and a drink 那个时候我就点了一份餐点跟饮料 Because the points I had collected 那因为我有一些累积的一些点数
31:53
Were about to expire in two days 就过两天就到期了 So, I gave the person at the counter my order 所以我跟他说 So, I gave the person at the counter my order 我想要这样点 And that I wanted to use my points to pay 然后我要用我的点数来折抵 He knew that 那他们也说好 Then at the cash register 后来在结账的时候 He keyed in my order 他按到最后 Suddenly, he told me 他突然跟我说 "Sir, the meal you ordered" 先生 你点的这个餐点 "I can't use your points for this" 我没有办法用点数来帮你折抵 I said, "Is that so?" 我说 是这样子吗 I was a bit confused 我心里有点纳闷 Because I was at another branch two days before 因为我前两天在另外一家分店 I ordered something similar 其实也点了类似的东西 And used my points 也是用点数 But I thought it might be because the meal I ordered was different 但我想可能是因为 But I thought it might be because the meal I ordered was different 我点的餐点不一样 Or they had a different approach 或者他们有什么样不同的办法 And I thought about it and said 我想想我就说 "Ok, forget about it" 好吧 那算了 "I will cancel my food order" 不然我把那份餐点退掉好了 Because I still wanted to use up my points as soon as possible 因为我还是想要 Because I still wanted to use up my points as soon as possible 把点数来赶快使用掉 And he said that 然后他就跟那个 The cashier told the person in the back 结账员就跟后面的 The one who was preparing the meal 那位准备餐点的人说 And that person said 那准备餐点的说 "But I have already heated it up" 但是我已经加热了 And the cashier told me 然后他就跟我做一个转达 "But your meal is being heated" 但是你的餐点已经加热了 When I heard that 我其实听了心里面 I was a bit upset at first 一开始我有一点点不太舒服 I was silent for a moment 但后来我沉默了一下 I said, "That's ok" 我说 没关系 那算了 "I will pay cash then" 那我付现
32:54
