每日箴言

未来的盼望(记号:白百合)

“马利亚说,我是主的使女,情愿照你的话成就在我身上。” - 路 1:38

✟ 灵修

耶稣的母亲马利亚,是历史上最受尊敬的女性之一。所以毫不奇怪,“白百合”,或者有时叫“圣母百合花”,往往象征着她的纯洁、谦卑和奉献。长久以来,马利亚一直是坚定信心的有力见证。


要领略马利亚坚定的信心,我们只需把自己放在她的位置,想像一个天使突然出现在我们面前。我们许多人恐怕会因为害怕而晕倒。而马利亚呢,尽管她有困惑,却依然保持镇静,她倾听和回应了天使加百列的话。这位高层天使带来的信息更是令人吃惊。事实上,加百列对马利亚说:“至高者的能力要荫庇你。因此所要生的圣者,必称为神的儿子。” “你要给他起名叫耶稣,因为他要将自己的百姓从罪恶里救出来”(参太 1:21)。马利亚平静地说:“我是主的使女,情愿照你的话成就在我身上。”


面对巨大的不确定性,马利亚是坚定信心的榜样,她值得我们深深地尊敬。当然,她并不神圣,但她树立了一个属天的圣洁榜样,激励我们在跟随耶稣的过程中,当面对令人不安的呼召时,也能作出同样的回应。


愿我们每个人都能说:“我是主的仆人/使女”,然后尽心、尽性,尽意,尽力地跟随耶稣。

✟ 祷告

主啊,求你加添我们的信心,使我们更加忠诚,奉主耶稣的名祷告,阿们!

普世佳音每日箴言

Hope For The Future (Symbol: White Lily)

"'I am the Lord’s servant,' Mary answered. 'May your word to me be fulfilled.'" — Luke 1:38

✟ Devotion

Mary, the mother of Jesus, is one of the most highly revered women in history. So it comes as no surprise that white lilies, or “Madonna lilies,” as they are sometimes called, often symbolize her purity, humility, and devotion. Across the ages, Mary remains a powerful witness to unyielding faith.


To appreciate the sturdiness of Mary’s faith, we need only put ourselves in her place and imagine an angel suddenly appearing to us. Many of us would probably faint from terror. Yet, despite her bewilderment, Mary remains composed as she listens and responds to the angel Gabriel. The message this high-ranking angel delivers is even more startling. “By the power of the Holy Spirit you will conceive God’s Son,” Gabriel tells Mary, in effect, “and you are to call him Jesus, because he will save God’s people from their sins” (see Mathew 1:21).


And Mary responds serenely, “I am the Lord’s servant. May your word to me be fulfilled.”


For her example of unwavering faith in the face of great uncertainty, Mary deserves our deep respect. Of course she’s not divine herself, but she provides a divinely inspired example of how we too can respond when we are faced with unsettling calls to follow Jesus.


May each of us be able to say, “I am the Lord’s servant,” and then follow Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.


✟ Prayer

Lord, increase our faith and our faithfulness. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
