Reflection感想:

“此时此刻”是神给我们的礼物。如果我们一直缅怀过去,就不能完全投入当今的生活里。你的人生目的神早已经给 你安排好了。我们经常努力朝着自己设定的目标,忘了停下脚步问神:”我们为什么来到这个世上?“ ”神啊!你要我来这个世界的目的‘是什么?“ 我相信我们每个人不是白白来世上走一遭的,我们活着是有目的的!我 们来这世上不光是为了赚钱过活!就如 Jean-Jaques Rousseu所说的,”It is too difficult to think nobly when one thinks only of earning a living.” (要是一个人满头脑所想的只是赚钱养活,就很难有崇高的思想。)很多人追求物质上的成功–殊不知在追求荣华富贵的过程中,精神日趋贫乏。

我 的人生目标是 来完成神的目的。虽然我们有时候不能完全明白神的旨意,我们可以默想他的话语,随时向他祷告,寻求他的指引,他就会引导我们走我们应该走的方向。我们人生 最大的挑战不在于知道是非对错,而是在于身体力行上。我们大都能明辨是非,可是如果没有神的救赎,没有借助神的大能,我们往往无法抗拒魔鬼的诱惑,脱离罪 的陷阱。然而我们可以选择”“忘记背后,努力面前的,向着标竿直跑,”朝着神给我们的人生目标前行!

这是我的感想,你有什么感想呢?不妨说来听听!
