Job 21:14 They say to God, ‘Depart from us! We do not desire the knowledge of your ways.15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? And what profit do we get if we pray to him?

約 伯 記 21:14 他們對 神說:『離開我們吧!我們不想知道你的道路。15 全能者是誰,我們何必事奉他呢?求告他有甚麼益處呢?

In a time of crisis, our true “cards” are shown. Job’s words in 21:14-15 vividly describe the voice of a secular age which rebels again God – “Depart from us! We do not desire the knowledge of your ways.”. The world is still waiting to hear a different voice and moreover to see a different way of living. Let us counter the waves of this secular age by desiring above all else the knowledge of God’s ways and to serve Him, because we know who the Almighty is, and we are sure that “[t]he young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” (Psalm 34:10)

在危機時刻,我們的真實“牌”得以展示。 約伯在21:14-15中的話生動地描述了世俗時代叛逆上帝的聲音:“離開我們吧!我們不想知道你的道路。”世界仍在等待聽到不同的聲音,更需要看見不同的生活方式。 讓我們抵制這個世俗時代的潮流,以認識上帝的道路為首要並事奉上帝,因為我們知道全能者是誰,並且我們確信“少壯獅子尚且缺食忍餓,但尋求耶和華的甚麼好處都不缺。” (詩篇34:10)
