Advent Word, Day 10 ‘be’

Day 10 #be #陪伴 Tuesday December 6

‘People in trauma need our presence and our prayer rather than our preaching. We will bear a much more comforting witness to someone facing deep loss by simply being with them, and in so doing, representing God Emmanuel – God with us – by our being with them. Not by our words, but by our presence’.

心理創傷的人不需要我們說教,卻需要我們陪伴和代禱。透過單純的陪伴,也能讓一個身陷絕境、苦楚不堪的人得到許多安慰。這種做法,正如同上帝的「以馬內利」(就是「神與我們同在」的意思)—-我們彼此陪伴,不是單靠嘴巴說說,乃是真心相陪、真實做伴!
