Advent Word, Day 21 ‘open’

Day 21 #open #敞開 Sunday December 18, Fourth Sunday of Advent

‘When we open our hearts enough to truly love, our enemies can open up the possibility for our healing. It’s not just about treating our enemies a certain way; it’s about the fruits of relating to each other, to everyone, in the fullness of Christ’s love. When we practice loving fully, our great reward is being free from holding onto feelings like anger and hatred’.

當我們敞開心胸,懷抱真愛的時候,我們的敵人自然也會更加開放,使雙方關係的修復變為可能。這不僅表示該採取什麼方法對待敵人,更表明在基督全然的愛中,彼此若能真心相繫,會產生怎樣的結果。在操練「全然的愛」時,我們最大的獲益就是:從此免於憤怒或仇恨之類的有害情緒。
