神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

感恩的心 Words from Thanksgiving

读经

“应当称谢耶和华; 因他本为善,他的慈爱永远长存!”  历代志上 16:34 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.  1 C H R O N I C L E S 1 6 : 3 4

默想

在感恩的季节,人们用各种各样的词汇来表达感恩和感谢。除了“谢谢”,还有“纪念、怀念、想念、思念、难忘、珍惜、珍重、祝福、祝愿”等等。

圣经中,用来表达感恩的话就更多了。内心的感恩,会促使人们用各种形式、词汇表达出来。在历代志上16章,大卫用诗歌表达自己对上帝的感恩,他用的词汇都很美:歌诗、赞美、诉说、奇妙、历代、荣耀、作为、伟大、美名、列国、善良、慈爱、喜乐、纪念、寻求、力量、居住、宣告、圣洁、天国、救赎、永生,等等,太多了。阿们!

If you take the letters of thanksgiving and scramble them up, you can create some great vocabulary omelets. Words like giving and thanks are obvious, but think of all the others: think, hang, tang, gnat, king, gang, sing, singing, hanging, skiing, than, thin, snag, thing, nag, kin, stinking, thanking, thinking, hank, gain, gin, sang, it, at, is, as, gist, gas, its, ant, tan, shin, gash, kit, hat, saint, skit, angst, taking, van, skin, hint, sting, hint, asking, tasking, ah, sin, in, an, gig, inn, gag, tag, tank, stag, staging, aging, gist, ski.

The Bible speaks often about other words that derive from a heart of thanksgiving. An attitude of gratitude causes people to erupt in thankful expressions. For instance, in 1 Chronicles 16:8–36, David overflows with thanksgiving, which creates in him a litany of other words too: sing, praise, tell, miracle, generations, glory, acts, wonderful, name, known, nations, good, joy, rejoice, remember, seek, face, Lord, strength, dwelling, declare, ascribe, resound, splendor, holiness, tremble, heavens, salvation, everlasting, people, say, amen.

祷告

耶稣,谢谢你对我奇妙的作为,让我持有感恩的心。阿们。

Jesus, giving thanks to you produces wonderful things in me. Keep creating a thankful heart within me. Amen.

行动

这样的灵修是很愉快的吧。在感恩的季节,对上帝、对他人,多用赞美和感谢,要发自内心。

This may seem like the cheesiest devotional entry you have ever read before. But imagine doing this with people over the Thanksgiving holidays. What other words overflow from a heart of thanksgiving?
