未雨綢繆

 「智慧人家中積蓄寶物膏油.愚昧人隨得來隨吞下。」(箴21:20

  鴟鴞是一種身體小,性情溫馴的小鳥。在詩經豳風篇,有一首詩,形容一隻鴟鴞母鳥,失去了它的孩子,仍然在努力築巢。這母鳥哀怨的說:「趁著天之未陰雨,趕緊撕些桑樹皮,綢繆纏裹破漏處,免得受人的侵害。」尚書中金滕篇有一段故事,描述武王死後,託孤於周公,其餘的弟弟忌妒,就造謠說:「周公將不利於孺子。」周公就告訴大臣們說:「我不討伐他們,就對不起先王。」於是就先下手為強,把圖謀不軌的人都抓起來了。他就用這首詩經的歌,送給繼位的成王,起名「鴟鴞」,以自喻為保護家巢的母鳥。後世的人就用「未雨綢繆」這句成語,表示事先籌劃準備,以免臨時手忙腳亂。

  從上世紀八零年代開始,美國公司逐漸取消養老金制度,改成401(k)IRA免稅存款的制度。換句話說,每個工人要自己從每月收入中,抽出部份作退休金準備。這主意很好,可以避免公司被養老金拖垮,也可減輕政府社會安全保險的負擔。但是美國人花錢的方式太壞,物質誘惑太大,大家沒有存錢的習慣。三十年後,美國人有超過一半的家庭,沒有退休的存款;只有四分之一的家庭,有退休基金但只達到五萬美元。十年之後就要退休的家庭,有40%沒有絲毫存款。悲哀的是,大家仰賴的社會安全基金,正在快速的枯竭中。專家們估計,大約在1216年之內,政府支付養老金和醫療保險的花費,將趕不上稅收,勢必減少提供所有的福利。屆時依靠社會保險收入的老年人,將面臨極大的困難。

  聖經告訴我們,要信靠神,不要依賴不定的錢財。同時要我們未雨綢繆,預備好將來會發生的需要。然後把多餘的分給窮人。這才是錢財的好管家。

Be Prepared for the Rainy Day

  “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.” (Prov. 21:20)

   Strigidae is a small owl that has tender temperament. In Chinese ancient poetry “the Book of Songs”, Binfong chapter, there is a poem that describes a female Strigidae who lost her young but still is busy in building a nest. The bird said: “Before the rain, I will fly to the sycamore tree to get some tree bark to reinforce my nest so that I will not be destroyed by my enemy.” In another ancient book ShangSu, there was a story: After the King Wu passed away, the appointed regent Gong Zhou to take care his family. But the brothers of King Wu were jealous of him, so they spread rumors and said that the regent wanted to take over the king’s position. So Gong Zhou declared that if he did not take actions, he would be dishonored the past king. So he took pre-emptive action and captured all brothers of King Wu. Then He gave that poem to the young king as a hint that he himself was acting like the mother bird that protected her nest. Later, people use the phrase of “reinforcing your nest” as “to be prepared for the rainy day.”

   Starting from 1980s, American companies began switching from traditional pensions plan to self-directed 401(k) or IRA. In another words, everyone has the responsibility for his or her own retirement by saving portions of their income for the future expenses. This seems a good idea that not only can prevent companies to file bankruptcy due to the pensions, but also can reduce government’s burden in Social Security program. However, Americans have very bad spending habit and they can’t resist temptations from material things and they have no concept of saving money. Thirty years later, there are more than half of the whole country population have no saving for their retirements and about only one quarter of families have $50, 000 or more saved. For those who are going to retire in ten years, 40% of them have no saving at all. The bad news is that the Social Security Fund is decreasing rapidly. According to some experts, within 12 to 16 years government expenses in Social Security and Medicare will be far more than that the tax revenues and will result in decreasing benefits. At that time, those who solely depend on the government checks for living will face great difficult financially.

   The Bible teaches us to depend on God, not to depend on unsecure money. It also reminds us that we have to prepare for the unseen future. We have to save some of our income regularly for the retirement and future needs and then give the surplus to the poor. In doing so, we can become a good steward for money that God entrust us.
