Road to success

Sheta’s self-talking.

There’re NO shortcut to success. NEVER. You may find shortcut to the “road to succeess”, but you still have to walk on step by step. Don’t put anything blocking your road by yourself… it’s full of obstacles already. If you don’t want to walk on, just leave it… you don’t need any excuses at all, because it’s a matter of your own choice. You simply don’t need to tell people your reason of quitting… no one is interested and responsible at all.

But, if you DECIDE to walk on, focus on the goal ahead and every step you make. Don’t bother how many steps ahead. You know from your heart: the road is long and winding, with tons of unknowns and attacks. Since you DECIDE to walk on, you have nothing to do but to walk on step by step. Don’t rely on friends’ support and encouragement. These are not a MUST in your life, but little gifts from heaven. One day, someday, when you reach the destination, you reach your goal, experiencing all miracles happening on the road, with stronger mind and heart. You’ll find “walking through with all your effort” is what it means to be successful.

  1. The road is always long long to go. Can we find a shorter road with a “smaller” success or we find a long road to aim at a “great success”?

  2. 以今晚原文查經班的其中一個故事作回應,是很多人用作總結保羅一生的明句(保羅真可憐),於腓立比書三章十三至十四節。很熟悉,但有一個字我們卻走漏了眼。

    13 弟兄們、我不是以為自己已經得著了,我只有一件事、就是忘記背後努力面前的、
    14 向著標竿直跑、要得神在基督耶穌裡從上面召我來得的獎賞。

    忘記背後努力面前。這可能是很多信徒的案頭儆世明句。我們走漏了眼,是那個毫不起眼的「的」。忘記背後,努力面前的。面前的甚麼呢?保羅沒有說;那標竿是甚麼呢?保羅沒有說。他說得明明白白的只有一件事,就是他所指的那「一件事」,就是「要得神在基督耶穌裡從上面召我來得的獎賞」。

    往昔查經的重點從來不在那兒,這聖經被巧妙運用,變成鞭策信徒的良方。但保羅卻著眼於無論作何事,為的是要得上帝召我們要得的獎賞。上帝召我們不是擔泥,卻是要我們得獎賞。

    這也是我最近的領受:很多時候我們以為上帝會這樣那樣看我們,我們傾向以自己的經驗去經驗及詮釋上帝。但上帝真的計較我們在大成功還是小成功嗎?究竟我們真正認識且認同祂眼中的好惡嗎?

    最近查考的約拿書、詩篇和這經文的信息很豐富,真的要找個機會慢慢細讀。
