誠實

  「你們的話,是就說是;不是就說不是,若再多說,就是出於那惡者。」(太5:37 

  在甘肅某城一所小學,一位二年級的老師教導她學生說:「誠實是一切美德的基礎。」幾天以後,她收到一封謝卡,是一對年輕的夫婦寫給她的,謝謝她教導孩子要誠實。原來她班上有一位學生,在聽到老師的講解誠實之重要後,在回家的路上搭公車,發現有人在座位上留下了一個塑膠袋。他好奇的打開一看,居然是裝滿了百元人民幣。這孩子把袋子帶回去,交給了父母,並且要求他們幫他找到這袋子的主人。他父母就把錢帶到當地的派出所去報案,一共是15萬人民幣。不久,袋子的主人出現了,就是這對夫婦,他們為失去買房屋的頭款,正急的要發瘋。後來得知是孩子的老師教他們要誠實,就寫信來謝謝。

  現代人越來越藐視誠實,認為是傻瓜或是弱者才需要誠實。好像別人應當對自己誠實,而自己卻有不需要誠實的特權。誠如那位老師所說的:「誠實是一切美德的基礎。」如果不誠實,所有表現出來的好行為,都帶著一些隱藏的動機,那又有什麼意義?而且不誠實的社會,彼此不能信任,不論做什麼事都要提防受騙,或是想辦法騙人,生活會變成十分緊張痛苦,混亂不堪。難怪孔子說:「鄉愿,德之賊也。」

  主耶穌說:「那真正拜父的,要用心靈和誠實拜祂,因為父要這樣的人拜祂。」

可見的神是十分看重誠實的心。即便我們失敗,或因犯罪而變成不潔淨,只要我們肯誠實的面對神,承認自己的過犯,接受失敗的苦果,神還是會接納我們的。人是可以欺騙的,但神知道萬人的心,誰能欺騙的了神呢?如果我們因著撒謊,得到一時的好處,卻失去神的祝福,那又是何等大的損失?

Honesty

"Simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one." (Matt. 5:37)

In Gansu province, there was a second grade elementary school teacher who taught her students a saying: “Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues.”  Several days later, she received a thankyou card from a young couple who applauded her for teaching children about honesty.  The story behind it was that one of her student remembered the teacher’s lesson that day, and while riding home on the bus, he discovered a plastic bag on the backside of the seat.  With curiosity, he peeked inside of the bag and noticed that there were big rolls of hundred dollar bills.  The boy took the bag home and told his parents.  He asked his parents to help him to find the owner of this bag.  The parents brought their son to the local police department to register the case, and afterwards the police counted the money, to be ¥150,000 RMB.  Later on, the owner of the money showed up.  They had almost went crazy for losing the down payment for a house.  After they heard about how the boy returned the money, and how the teacher recently taught him about honesty, they were inspired to write a thank you letter to the teacher. 

In the modern society, people often distain the importance of truthfulness and consider it as a sign of weakness.  Actually, they want others to be honest to them, but exempt themselves.  Just as the teacher said: “Honesty is the foundation of all virtues.”  If a person is not honest, whatever good deeds he does always seem to have some hidden agenda, then what good is it?  Without truthfulness in society, people cannot trust to each other; everyone has to protect his own interests, in order not to be cheated, this leads to a life full of distrust and anxiety. Therefore, Confucius said: “Cheating is the thief of conscience.”

Jesus said: “True worshipper will worship the Father in spirit and in truth.”  God wants us to be honest and He honors the truthfulness in our heart.  Although we may fail and become unclean due to our transgressions, but if we can truthful and face our sin with a repentant heart, and willing to receive the consequences of our failures, God will forgive us our sins and grant us grace.  People can cheat to each other, but no one can cheat God.  He knows what is in everyone’s heart.  If we tell a lie to gain some temporary benefits, but lose the blessing of God, how great a loss will it be!
