Humility: The Right View Of Yourself (Chinese/English)

Proverbs 22:4-The reward of humility and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the Lord is riches, honour, and life.

Humility: The Right View Of Yourself

谦卑:正确看待自己

The Book of Proverbs offers a wealth of wisdom and insight for living a godly and fulfilling life.  It also praises humility as one of life’s greatest virtues. In this passage, King Solomon teaches us that humility has its rewards: Riches, honor and life.  Pride also has its reward: Failure and death.  There is fake humility (pretending to be humble) and true humility (genuine humbleness and meekness before men and God.

箴言讲述了过敬虔和有意义的生活所需要的丰富智慧和洞察力。它同时赞美了生活中最重要的一项品德谦卑。在这段经文中,所罗门王教导我们谦卑所获得的赏赐:富有,尊荣和生命。骄傲也有它的回报:失败和死亡。谦卑有真(在人和神面前真实的谦卑与柔和)有假(假装谦卑)。

Here are some ways we can look at True Humility:

这里有一些方法使我们可以识别真正的谦卑:

1) Is dependence on God.  It is recognizing our need for His presence in every area of our lives.

依赖神。在我们生活的每个领域认识到与神同在的需求

2) Seeks to glorify God; it does not seek attention or self-promotion.

寻求荣耀神;而不是寻求关注或自我提升。

3) Does not seek a reward; it takes pleasure in serving God and others.

不寻求回报;以喜乐服侍神和他人。

4) Is having an opinion of one’s self-based on the Word of God, not worldly achievements.

把自我建立在神的话语之上,而不是属世的成就,以此为价值观。

What helps us to have a correct view of ourselves?

如何帮助我们建立正确的自我认知?

It begins with having a reverential fear of God. When we look at ourselves in the light of God’s glory, we will have a correct view of ourselves. John the Baptist gives an excellent example of true humility.  During his ministry, some people thought that he was the promised Messiah.  However, he set the record straight, recognizing that he was the one to bear witness of the Light.  Regarding his relation to the Christ, he says, “He (Jesus) must increase and I must decrease.”  The greatest form of humility is surrendering our lives to God completely and unconditionally.  May we find joy in walking humbly before our God。

首先要有对神的敬畏。当我们以神的荣耀看我们自己时,我们就会正确的看待自己。施洗约翰对谦卑给出了极好的例证。在他的使命过程中,有些人认为他就是那应许的弥赛亚。然而他直接进行了澄清,认识到他是为光做见证的那位。关于他和基督的关系,他说,“他必兴旺,我必衰微。”谦卑最伟大的形式就是把我们的生命完全和无条件地顺服于神。在神面前谦卑行走我们就会找到喜乐。
