終於讀完了 For Self-examination / Judge for Yourself (勇氣與謙卑). 在最後一章, 作者祈克果提到甚麼是真正的捨己. 當我們感到痛苦, 受創, 是因為我們以為阻力, 和難以理解的苦難, 證明我們做錯了. 但慈愛的神是要我們在困難前面謙卑下來, 從這小小考驗裡學習謙卑. 真正的捨己, 不是要得著世人的尊重和欣賞, 也不是單單把這些都放棄, 更重要的是為自己所做的好事受苦.
我有為我所做的好事受苦嗎? 或許我應當問, 我真的有做過好事嗎?
Finally, I finished the book “For Self-examination / Judge for Yourself". In the last chapter, Soren Kierkegaard talked about what is “To Give myself Up Really". Whever we feel painful, hurted, that’s because we thought the hardship and reaction force are proof of our faults. However, God want us to be humble in hardship which is just a small test. To Really Give myself Up, is neither to gain respectation and appreciation, nor to give up respectation and appreciation. The main point is, to bear pain because of good things we do.
Do I bear pain because of the good things I do? I think I should ask myself: Have I ever did anything good?
