Day 27 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary (爸爸的心 / Father’s Heart)



今天跟大家分享那天在吉隆坡听到的比喻,Pastor David Demian分享了一个很生动的画面,然后问了一个问题;我心中马上冒起一个念头说,我一定要跟教会分享这个感人比喻。

Pastor David叫我们想像一个画面,一个爸爸带他几个小孩外游,到运动场时跟他几位小孩说,大家来赛跑。因为每个小孩年龄不同,弱小的肯定是跑输的。Pastor David就问我们说,开始跑了,爸爸应该会跑在哪个孩子的身边,与他同步或作伴?

Day 27 : Oct 29th (Sat)

I shared with the church the parable I heard in KL that day, Pastor David Demian shared a very vivid illustration, then he asked us a question. At that moment, a thought entered my mind immediately that I must share this touching parable with the church.

Pastor David asked us to imagine a scenario where a father brings his kids for an outing, and in the sports field he tells his kids to have a race with him. Because each child’s age is different, so the younger or weaker ones would certainly lose. Then Pastor David asked us, when they begin running, which child will the father be running beside, same pace with him and accompanying him?

Immediately we all knew the answer, of course the father will be with the weakest and the one running last, fearing that this kid would be left far behind, that he might fall or hurt himself or what…

That is the love of a father, that is the love of our Father God… but so many times we tend to feel that God will stop loving us, be mad at us, or abandon and ignore us when we are weak, when we fall, not so pleasing to God, or when we feel we are not a good Christian… The truth is, our Father God will instead be by our side, encouraging us and helping us to continue running till the finishing line…

“So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”
~ Luke 15:20 ~
