[15] He gave five bags of silver to one, two bags of silver to another, and one bag of silver to the last-dividing it in proportion to their abilities. He then left on his trip. [16] "The servant who received the five bags of silver began to invest the money and earned five more. [17] The servant with two bags of silver also went to work and earned two more. [18] But the servant who received the one bag of silver dug a hole in the ground and hid the master's money. [19] "After a long time their master returned from his trip and called them to give an account of how they had used his money.

    Generosity and true riches
    慷慨與真正的財富



    Luke 16:9-13 NKJV
    [9] "And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home. [10] He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. [11] Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? [12] And if you have not been faithful in what is another man's, who will give you what is your own? [13] "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

    路 加 福 音 16 章 9-13 節 CUV
    9 我 又 告 訴 你 們 , 要 藉 著 那 不 義 的 錢 財 結 交 朋 友 , 到 了 錢 財 無 用 的 時 候 , 他 們 可 以 接 你 們 到 永 存 的 帳 幕 裡 去 。10人 在 最 小 的 事 上 忠 心 , 在 大 事 上 也 忠 心 ; 在 最 小 的 事 上 不 義 , 在 大 事 上 也 不 義 。 11倘 若 你 們 在 不 義 的 錢 財 上 不 忠 心 , 誰 還 把 那 真 實 的 錢 財 託 付 你 們 呢 ? 12倘 若 你 們 在 別 人 的 東 西 上 不 忠 心 , 誰 還 把 你 們 自 己 的 東 西 給 你 們 呢 ? 13一 個 僕 人 不 能 事 奉 兩 個 主 ; 不 是 惡 這 個 愛 那 個 , 就 是 重 這 個 輕 那 個 。 你 們 不 能 又 事 奉 神 , 又 事 奉 瑪 門 。

    提 摩 太 前 書 6 章 10 節 CUV
    10 貪 財 是 萬 惡 之 根 。 有 人 貪 戀 錢 財 , 就 被 引 誘 離 了 真 道 , 用 許 多 愁 苦 把 自 己 刺 透 了 。

    1 Timothy 6:17-19 MSG
    [17-19] Tell those rich in this world's wealth to quit being so full of themselves and so obsessed with money, which is here today and gone tomorrow. Tell them to go after God, who piles on all the riches we could ever manage-to do good, to be rich in helping others, to be extravagantly generous. If they do that, they'll build a treasury that will last, gaining life that is truly life.
    提 摩 太 前 書 6 章 17-19 節 CUV
    17 你 要 囑 咐 那 些 今 世 富 足 的 人 , 不 要 自 高 , 也 不 要 倚 靠 無 定 的 錢 財 ; 只 要 倚 靠 那 厚 賜 百 物 給 我 們 享 受 的 神 。 18又 要 囑 咐 他 們 行 善 , 在 好 事 上 富 足 , 甘 心 施 捨 , 樂 意 供 給 人 , 19為 自 己 積 成 美 好 的 根 基 , 預 備 將 來 , 叫 他 們 持 定 那 真 正 的 生 命 。

    [19] After all, what gives us hope and joy, and what will be our proud reward and crown as we stand before our Lord Jesus when he returns? It is you! [20] Yes, you are our pride and joy.
    帖撒羅尼迦前書2章19-20節 CNV

    Extravagant generosity
    極級慷慨


    John 12:1-6 NKJV
    [1] Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. [2] There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. [3] Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. [4] But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, who would betray Him, said, [5] "Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?" [6] This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.

    約翰福音 12:1-6 CCB
    逾越節前六天,耶穌來到伯大尼,就是祂叫拉撒路從死裡復活的村子。 2 村裡有人為耶穌預備了晚飯,拉撒路也與耶穌同席,瑪大在旁邊伺候。 3 瑪麗亞拿出一瓶珍貴的純哪噠香膏來抹耶穌的腳,又用自己的頭髮去擦,屋裡頓時充滿了香氣。
    4 有一個門徒,就是將要出賣耶穌的加略人猶大說: 5 「為什麼不把香膏賣三百個銀幣去賙濟窮人呢?」 6 他這樣說不是因為他真的關心窮人,其實他是個賊,常常藉管錢的機會中飽私囊。
