Stewards of God's Gifts

EVERYDAY STEWARDSHIP - RECOGNIZE GOD IN YOUR

ORDINARY MOMENTS

Practicing Graciousness in the Desert

Looking back over my journey of parenthood, I know there were days when I traveled the extra mile for my children. I made their toast the way they like it, let them play in the park an extra ten minutes, or let them go to the movies with their friends and I finished up the chores on my own. And then, it happened: the attitude. The request for the smallest thing from one of them is met with disdain or bewilderment.

Sometimes you can be made breathless with the ingratitude of another person who takes so much and with so little shame, only to scoff at the idea that they, too, give even the smallest amount.

But if we’re being honest with ourselves, we will admit that we do the exact same thing to God. Haven’t we all been the Israelites in the desert at one point or another? God has parted our Red Sea in some way. He’s led us out of some great trials, given us some great blessings. But then we run into a little resistance somewhere along the way and we throw up our hands.(white flag?) How could you do this to us, Lord? How could you ask this of us? No, I can’t go any further. No, I won’t do any more.

Persisting in the blindness to the many ways God continues to protect us is nothing short of a temper tantrum. It robs our Everyday Stewardship of its graciousness, of our ability to accept with joy the trials of life because we are also constantly aware of its blessings.

每日當責-在日常生活中體會天主- 在沙漠中練習仁慈

 

回顧為人父母的路程,我明瞭那段為孩子們加倍努力付出的日子,我以他們喜歡的方式順應了他們,讓他們在公園多玩十分鐘,或是讓他們和朋友去看電影而我獨自做完家務。然後,他們就發生了這樣的態度: 我在他們之中要求一件很小的事情,卻遭到他們的輕視或疑難。

 

有時候你可以因為一個人的忘恩負義,而喘不過氣來,此人獲得了許多的享受,卻少有愧疚。而他們只是嘲笑你的想法,並且付出更小的代價。

 

但如果我們坦承的面對自己,我們一樣也會坦承的面對上主。難道我們都沒有成為沙漠中的以色列人過嗎? 天主用某種方式將我們的紅海分開,天主領我們走出重大的考驗,賜予我們很大的祝福,但是隨後,我們在過程中某個地方遇到了小小阻力,便舉起雙手投降放棄,天主,祢怎可如此對待我們? 祢怎可如此要求我們? 不能,我無法再往前走了,我也無法再多做一點了。

 

上主堅持繼續用很多方式來保佑我們,而我們卻盲目的視而不見擅自發脾氣。此舉剝奪了我們過聖善生活裡的仁慈。使我們沒有歡喜的能力去接受生活的考驗,使我們也沒有不斷的意識到上主這樣的祝福。

常年期第十八主日

於是耶穌向他們說: "我實實在在告訴你們: 並不是梅瑟賜給了你們那從天上來的食糧,而是我父現今賜給你們從天上來的真正的食糧,因為天主的食糧,是那由天降下,並賜給世界生命的。"  若 6:32-33
