【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第十三週星期一(2014-09-01/ 08-19)

正教會今日讀經
格後/ 林後8:7-15
  就如你們在一切事上,在信德、語言、知識和各種熱情上,並在我們所交於你們的愛情上,超群出眾,這樣也要在這慈善事上超群出眾。我說這話並不是出命,而是藉別人的熱情來試驗你們愛情的真誠。因為你們知道我們的主耶穌基督的恩賜:他本是富有的,為了你們卻成了貧困的,好使你們因著他的貧困而成為富有的。我在這事上只給你們貢獻意見,因為這樣更適合於你們,因為你們從去年不但已開始實行了,而且還是出於自願。所以如今,請完成你們所實行的事罷!好使你們怎樣甘心情願,也怎樣照所有的予以完成,因為只要有甘心情願在,蒙受悅納是照所有的,不是照所無的。這不是說要使別人輕鬆,叫你們為難;而是說要出於均勻:在現今的時候,你們的富裕彌補了他們的缺乏,好使他們的富裕也彌補你們的缺乏,這樣就有了均勻,正如所記載的:『多收的沒有剩餘,少收的也沒有不足。』

  Now as you excel in every respect, in faith, discourse, knowledge, all earnestness, and in the love we have for you, may you excel in this gracious act also. I say this not by way of command, but to test the genuineness of your love by your concern for others. For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich. And I am giving counsel in this matter, for it is appropriate for you who began not only to act but to act willingly last year: complete it now, so that your eager willingness may be matched by your completion of it out of what you have. For if the eagerness is there, it is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have; not that others should have relief while you are burdened, but that as a matter of equality your surplus at the present time should supply their needs, so that their surplus may also supply your needs, that there may be equality. As it is written: “Whoever had much did not have more, and whoever had little did not have less.”

谷/ 可3:6-12
  法利塞人一出去,立刻便與黑落德黨人作陷害耶穌的商討,為除滅他。
  那時,耶穌同自己的門徒退到海邊去,有許多民眾從加里肋亞跟隨了來,並有從猶太、耶路撒冷、依杜默雅、約但河彼岸、提洛和漆冬一帶地方的許多群眾,聽說他所做的一切事,都來到他跟前。因為人多,他遂吩咐他的門徒,為自己備好一隻小船,免得人擁擠他。因為他治好了許多人,所以,凡有病災的人都向他湧來,要觸摸他。邪魔一見了他,就俯伏在他面前,喊說:「你是天主子。」他卻嚴厲責斥他們,不要把他顯露出來。

  The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against him to put him to death.
  Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples. A large number of people (followed) from Galilee and from Judea. Hearing what he was doing, a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem, from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan, and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him. He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him. And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, “You are the Son of God.” He warned them sternly not to make him known.
