Hong Kong : A great city! 香港 : 一個很好的城市! Let’s love our city (just like God does!) 讓我們一起熱愛我們的城市! (神也是這樣的!) Jonah 4:9-11 AMP [9] Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have a good reason to be angry about [the loss of] the plant?" And he said, "I have a [very] good reason to be angry, angry enough to die!" [10] Then the LORD said, "You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. [11] Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 [innocent] persons, who do not know the difference between their right and left hand [and are not yet accountable for sin], as well as many [blameless] animals?" 約拿書 4章9-11節 (NCV) 神問約拿:“你因這棵蓖麻這樣發怒,對不對呢?”約拿說:“我發怒以至於死都是對的。” 耶和華說:“這棵蓖麻,不是你栽種的,也不是你使它長大的,一夜長成,一夜死去,你尚且愛惜它,何況這尼尼微大城,其中不曉得分辨左右手的有十二萬多人,並且有許多牲畜,我怎能不愛惜呢?” Luke 19:41 NIV [41] As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 路加福音19章41節 (NCV) 耶穌走近耶路撒冷的時候,看見了城,就為城哀哭 Let’s have faith for our city (and our future!) 讓我們一起相信我們的城市 (和我們的將來!) Jeremiah 29:11 NLT [11] For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 耶利米書29章11節 (NCV) 因我自己知道我為你們所定的計劃,是使你們得平安,而不是遭受災禍的計劃;要賜給你們美好的前程和盼望。’這是耶和華的宣告。 Ephesians 4:29 AMP [29] Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak]. 以弗所書4章29節 (NCV) 一句壞話也不可出口,卻要適當地說造就人的好話,使聽見的人得益處。 Let’s bless our city (and be blessed here!) 讓我們一起祝福我們的城市!

Then find spouses for them so that you may have many grandchildren. Multiply! Do not dwindle away! [7] And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare." 耶利米書29章5-7節 (CUV) 你們要蓋造房屋住在其中、栽種田園吃其中所產的。娶妻生兒女、為你們的兒子娶妻、使你們的女兒嫁人、生兒養女、在那裏生養眾多、不至減少。我所使你們被擄到的那城、你們要為那城求平安、為那城禱告耶和華、因為那城得平安、你們也隨著得平安。
