Cac ban tre than men,

Cac bai oc Kinh Thanh hom nay lien quan ti mot chu e rat cu the va thc te: con ngi co nen hng thu cac cua cai tran gian, s sung sng tran gian do cua cai mang lai khong? Ca ba bai oc Kinh Thanh co ve phi bac thang thng.

Bai trch sach Giang Vien nhn cuoc i la mot s phu van, nh bong hoa sm n toi tan, au kho th nhieu ma hanh phuc chang co bao nhieu. oc bai trch sach Giang Vien, co ngi lien tng ti cau th cua Cao Ba Quat: "Ba van sau ngan ngay la may, canh phu du trong thay cung nc ci". Con th Colose th day ngh ti nhng s tren tri, ng lu tam en nhng g thuoc ha gii. Hn the na, trong bai Tin Mng, ngi phu ho giau co va ch biet hng thu, c canh cao la noi trong em nay, mang song cua ong se b lay i.

Co le mot so ban tre cam thay co nhieu thac mac. Thien Chua dng nen the gii cho loai ngi, vay ma loai ngi khong c hng thu g hay sao? Cua cai tran gian danh cho loai ngi, vay neu loai ngi khong hng thu th ai hng thu? Sinh ra tran gian ma khong c hng thu g, th cuoc i au con thu v! Chung ta tra li the nao cho nhng thac mac ay? Hay oc ky cac bai oc Kinh Thanh, chung ta thay rat ro hng i cho nhng ngi co ao, mon o cua Chua Giesu.

Neu hieu t ng hng thu theo ngha xau: con ngi hng thu ch biet chieu theo nhng am me xau xa, khong con muon phan biet thien ac, khong ngh ti ai ngoai chnh mnh, khong cong hien g cho xa hoi, khong co mot no lc nao vn len trong cuoc song, th qua that hng thu la mc thap nhat, xau nhat trong cach song i. Mot so t ngi nh ong phu ho trong bai Tin Mng, ngh o la cach song hp ly; ho la nhng mon o cua chu ngha khoai lac. Than d cung thng dung nhng khoai lac tran gian lam moi cam do con ngi theo no.

Nhng neu ta hieu theo mot ngha bnh thng la tha hng nhng cua cai, nhng phat minh, nhng tien nghi ma xa hoi cung cap, th ai cung co quyen hng thu nhng ieu chnh ang, nhng nhu cau cot yeu cua i song con ngi. D nhien neu biet hng thu th cung phai biet cong hien. Toi nghiep cho nhng ngi ngheo kho va thap co be mieng, ca i khong co g e hng thu, ngoai chut lng thc an cho oi. o la cha ke nhng ngi ang oi an, thieu thon moi th!

Neu chung ta biet hng s hng thu i nay sang mot hng cao hn, o la thng thc, th cuoc i cua chung ta co the va rat hanh phuc, va rat cao ca va co y ngha, mien la ta biet chia se nhng s hng thu cua ta cho ngi khac. Chung ta hay vui mng, v cang ngay cang co nhieu ngi Viet nam c i ngh he, c thng ngoan nhng danh lam thang canh, c thng nem nhng mon an ngon lanh. Nhieu ngi, nh thng thc nhng tac pham nghe thuat ve thi ca, am nhac, hoi hoa, kien truc, hay i xem hoac tham d nhng cuoc thi au the duc the thao, ma i song c nang cao, tam hon c sang khoai. Thi nao con ngi cung can nhng s hu e song cho xng ang la ngi: s hu nhieu hn e hien hu ay u hn.

Giao huan cua th Colose rat ro: anh em a mac lay con ngi mi, con ngi hang c oi mi theo hnh anh ang Tao hoa. ang Tao Hoa la Chan Thien My. Hng ve Chan Thien My, moi ngi eu c nang cao, tr nen con ngi ung ngha hn, tron ven hn, gan vi Thien Chua hn, giong Chua Giesu hn. Thanh Phaolo day chung ta ng noi doi, v doi tra la ac iem cua con ngi cu giong than d ma ban chat la doi tra. Khi day ta hay giet chet nhng g thuoc ve ha gii, Phaolo hieu t ha gii theo mot ngha tieu cc, o la nhng ieu xau xa, nh gian dam, o ue, am me xau, c muon xau, nh tham san si chang han. Co lam nh vay, chung ta mi hng ve s tron hao, hng ve s thien, tr nen giong Thien Chua la ang Thien hao. Va neu ta biet thng thc nhng cai hay cai ep i nay, th ta mi co the co chut g giong Thien Chua la Cai ep Vnh Hang.

Khi biet hng thng, hng ve Thien Chua, cuoc i cua chung ta cao thng hn, co y ngha hn, vien man hn. Chua Giesu a en tran gian, a lam ngi, e day cho chung ta cach song lam ngi, ban cho chung ta s song doi dao va vien man. Theo Chua, chung ta luon cau tien, nhng khong tham lam, luon vn len, nhng khong ua oi, luon tnh thc, nhng khong lo lang, nang ong sang tao nhng khong gian doi, biet lo cho ban than nhng khong ch ky. Chua Giesu day chung ta yeu thng, v o la ieu cao ep nhat ni con ngi, cung la ieu lam cho con ngi giong Thien Chua, ang t ban chat la Tnh Yeu.
