31天之尋找智慧 (31 Days of Wisdom): Day 4 & 5

Standard

Proverbs 箴言 4:23

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

你要保守你心,勝過保守一切因為一生的果效,是由心發出。

To me, most things that happen in life are a matter of the heart. Call it what you will, psychological well-being, emotional wellness, peace of the soul, but it always boils down to the human heart. Everything we feel, think, and do; it comes from our heart. And whatever we let into our heart, comes out in our actions.

對我來說,人類生活的發生都歸於我們的心。我們的心包含心裡健康,情緒健康,心裡平靜,生活的事都從此些啟發,感覺,思想,行為,皆歸於我們的心。什麼事進去我們的心,什麼事在生活中生出來。

Proverbs 箴言 5:5-6

Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not.

他腳下入死地,她腳步踏住陰間,以致她不著生命平坦的道。他的路變遷不定,自己還不知道

The “she” in these verses refer to an adulteress. Why an adulteress? Well, in order to commit adultery, people generally end up being dishonest, lie to people who love them, and, ultimately, are unfaithful. Why? To get what they want. I think this might be the opposite of the “she” in the previous chapters, the opposite of wisdom. But the scary part about not having wisdom, is that you literally don’t realize how you’re ruining your life. It makes me think about all those times I’ve only gone after what I wanted, not even realizing how much I was damaging my own life.
