瑪竇福音 6:24-34

在今天的福音中,耶穌就:「你們不能事奉天主而又事奉錢財。」耶穌教導門徒的生活方式:不依戀世俗的事物、以愛主愛人為己任,跟尋求財富和名利的生活態度完全不同。耶穌清楚的讓我們知道,我們只能二選其一。我們要接受耶穌作為我們的主,就不能被物質上的追求佔據我們的心。

現代人面對很大的壓力,一些人甚至要為此尋求心理治療。耶穌知道人經常為各種事情憂慮,祂在福音中給了我們很好的訓示:「你們中誰能運用思慮,使自己的壽命增加一肘呢?」祂叫我們看看大自然的百態,是叫我們對天主懷有信心,祂早已知道我們的一切所需。祂想我們把目光集中在實踐天主的旨意,而不是浪費光陰,為各樣我們無法控制的事憂愁。

當魔鬼引誘我們為世俗的事而擔憂、不履行天主旨意的時候,讓我們記著耶穌的話。德蘭修女曾經說過:「昨天已經過去。明天還沒到來。我們所擁有的只有今天。讓我們開始吧。」珍惜今天,實踐天主此刻為你的旨意!

Matthew 6:24-34

In today’s gospel reading, Jesus said: “You cannot serve God and mammon.” The way of life that Jesus taught His disciples: don’t be attached to worldy things, strive to love God and our neighbours, is completely incompatible with a preoccupation with money and possessions. Jesus told us clearly that we can only choose one over the other. If we truly accept Jesus as our Lord, we cannot not be materialistic.

Many people today face lots of stress, some of them go to therapies for this reason. Jesus knows men have lots of anxieties, and so He gave us some excellent advices in the gospel: “Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?” He asked us to look at the nature, to encourage us to have faith in God that He already knows all that we need. He wants us to focus on doing God’s will, as oppose to wasting our time to worry about those things that we have no control over.

When the devil tempts us to be anxious about our material needs, to not follow God’s will, let us remember Jesus’ words. Mother Teresa once said: “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” Make the most out of today, follow God’s will for you today.
