A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS

30天新教徒导航

DAY 12 LOVING OURSELVES

第12天 爱我们
Do I love myself?

你爱你自己吗?

Here is the "surprise" from yesterday's lesson: the reference point for loving others is our

love for ourselves. "You shall love your neighbor as yourself"  (Matthew 22:39).

这是昨天上课时惊奇的发现:爱他人就要先爱我们自己。“你要爱你的邻居如同爱自己一般”(马太福音 章节 22:39)

How should we love ourselves? Jesus' concept of loving ourselves has nothing to do with the

weary drone of today's pop psychology -- "feeling good about yourself" is all that counts.

Marketers blatantly link "good feelings" with acquiring everything from pep pills to protruding

biceps; fabulous manicures to monster TVs; fast cars to fantastic vacation getaways.

我们该怎样爱我们自己?耶稣爱自己的观点跟今天普遍存在的心力交瘁无关----感觉自己不错,就是爱自己。

While "good feelings" may have a place (and I'm not on a crusade against things we acquire),

more often than not, acquisitions and nonstop activity are escape mechanisms that will never

fully satisfy.

可能好的感觉分场合(我不反对我们需要的东西),往往,获取和不停地活动是那些从不满意的逃跑机械主义。

 In fact, when we try all the "elixirs" and they fall short, we often get

discouraged or depressed, the result of trying to fill our emptiness in the wrong ways. God's

provision transcends feelings and things. Our deepest needs are only and always fulfilled in

Him. Centuries ago St. Augustine wrote, "You have made us for Yourself, O God, and our hearts

are restless until they find their rest in You."

实际上,当我们在努力寻求各种不老术,却还是难免一死,我们经常遭受挫败或陷入绝望,这是我们用错误的方法在填充我们的空皮囊。

上帝的惠赠包括感情和物品。我们内心的需求是唯一通过他满足,一直是。几百年前,圣奥古斯丁(St. Augustine)写道,“哦,上帝,你因你自己而塑造我们,我们一直忙碌不停,直到我们把心托付于你”

Now that you have come to Christ and "all things have become new," the whole matter of your

self-image gets a major makeover -- and is the basis for your loving yourself. (Don't worry,

you can still wear cool clothes and gel your hair!)

Here are two keys to your new self-image.

现在你已经信仰基督,一切都已经变为新的,“你自己的形象整体有大变化----它是你爱自己的基础(不要担心,你可穿凉爽的衣服,你可喷发胶!),下列2点是你i新形象的关键。
