Two people saw a homeless friend laying on the ground.
The first asked him, "Do you need anything?"
The second was behind them talking to his friend.
街友說, "餓了" 所以第一個人買便當給街友吃.
The homeless friend said he was hungry, so the first person bought him a meal.
As the homeless friend was eating, the second person called the first person over to him.
Since the first person was helping the homeless friend open his meal, he just ignored the second person.
第二個人繼續叫他, 所以第一個人去問他, "怎麼了?"
The second person kept on calling though, so finally the first person went over and asked him what he wanted.
第二個人說, "那個街友是騙人, 不用給他幫助, 他是騙人."
The second person said, "That homeless guy is trying to cheat you. Don't help him, he's a cheater."
第一個人回答說, "他是不是騙人我不在乎. 他的狀況很可憐. 他值得幫助."
The first person answered and said, "Whether or not he's a cheater, I don't care. His situation is desperate. He deserves help."
The second person kept repeating, "He's a cheater."
第一個人再回答, "我一前也是騙人而我的狀況也很可憐, 但是耶穌拯救我, 所以我的生命改變了. 那個街友也值得幫助因為他是個人. 我們都是神的孩子, 我們都需要水, 食物, 衣服, 跟房子, 這些都是基本的. 所以如果他騙我, 我不在乎. 我一樣要幫助他."
The first person again answered, "I was once a cheater and my situation was desperate as well, but Jesus saved me, so my whole life changed. That homeless friend deserves help simply because he's a person. We are all God's children and we all need water, food, clothes, and shelter. These are basic needs. If he is a cheater, I don't care. I will help him all the same.
The second person asked the first person, "Are you a Christian?"
"Yes, I am a Christian."
Then, the second person changed the subject and walked away.
These two people have completely different ideologies.
第一個人相信每一個人都值得恩典, 再一次機會, 跟基本的生活.
The first person believes that every person deserves grace, another chance, and our basic human needs.
第二個人相信騙人就是騙人, 他們沒辦法改變而且他們是罪人, 不值得幫助.
The second person believes that cheaters are cheaters. They don't change, they are always going to be sinners who don't deserve our help.
如果我們都看自己的心理面, 我們每一個人會承認, 我們都是騙人, 但神是愛, 祂繼續選擇幫助我們, 愛我們, 而給我們在一次的機會.
If we look at our own hearts, we will all be forced to admit that we are all cheaters, but God is love and he continues to choose to help us, love us, and give us another chance.
祝大家平安! 可以思考自己的想法. 感謝神我們每天都接受更多恩典.
Bless you all! You can think about your own ideology. Thank God that we can receive more grace each and every day.
