要作决定

“‘将乌陵和土明放在决断的胸牌里。… 亚伦 … 在耶和华面前常将 … 决断牌带在胸前。’” - 出 28:30

✟ 灵修

小时候我有一本书,书名是《珍贵的石头和宝石》(Precious Rocks and Gems),书中描述的珠宝似乎都相当豪华,亚伦决断的胸牌里的宝石使我想起那本书。神吩咐祂的子民,用世上一些美丽的东西为亚伦造了衣物,让他在进到神面前穿戴,真是十分有趣。


藏在胸牌里的还有“乌陵和土明”。我们不肯定它们究竟是什么或如何运作,它们大概是另外两块石。当需要作决定的时候,人们就循某种方式用它们去求问神的旨意。乌陵和土明曾一度是神奇妙的赐与,但只有以色列的大祭司才可以使用。


登山变像的时候,耶稣和最接近祂的门徒一起,他们听到神的声音这样说:“这是我的爱子,你们要听他!”在那天,门徒看到衣服发光的耶稣,这个异象表明祂是神的儿子。当时他们不明白这件事的意思,直到耶稣从死里复活,他们才晓得,然而他们却记得神曾说过:“你们要听他!”


今天,我们信靠我们终极完全的大祭司耶稣,祂必定会把神的话语和旨意向我们启示。藉着祂的灵,祂引导我们去作一切的决定,祂是我们的磐石和房角石;在祂里面,每样事物都找到有意义的的位份。所以,让我们都听祂吧!

✟ 祷告

主啊,我们天天都知道你的旨意,求你教导我们智慧之道,叫我们学习聆听和跟随你的声音,阿们!

普世佳音每日箴言

✟ Decisions To Make

“Put the Urim and the Thummim in the breastpiece. . . . Thus Aaron will always bear the means of making decisions . . . over his heart before the LORD.” - Exodus 28:29-30

✟ Devotion

As a girl, I had a small book called Precious Rocks and Gems. All of the jewels described on its pages seemed luxurious. The stones in Aaron’s breastpiece of decision remind me of that book. It’s intriguing that God had his people make something out of beautiful earthly objects for Aaron to wear when he went into God’s presence.


Tucked into the breastpiece were also “the Urim and the Thummim.” We don’t know exactly what these were or how they functioned, but they were probably two other stones. And somehow they were used in asking God about his will when decisions had to be made. The Urim and Thummim were a wonderful gift for a time, but they could only be used by the high priest of Israel.


At the transfiguration, Jesus was with his closest disciples when they heard God’s voice: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!” The disciples had a dazzling vision of Jesus that day, showing that he is the Son of God. They didn’t understand this event till later, after Jesus rose from the dead, but they remembered what God said: “Listen to him!”


Today we can trust that our ultimate High Priest, Jesus, reveals God’s Word and will to us. Through his Spirit, he is our guide in all our decision making. He is our Rock and Cornerstone, in whom everything finds its place and has meaning. So let’s listen to him!


✟ Prayer

Lord, we need to know your will each day. Teach us the way of wisdom as we learn to hear and follow your voice. Amen.
