Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way.  1 Corinthians 13:4-5
愛是恆久忍耐,又有恩慈。愛是不嫉妒,不自誇,不張狂;
不作失禮的事,不求自己的益處,哥 林 多 前 書 13:4-5

1. True Love Requires “You And Me” Relationships 真愛所要求的是「你加上我」的關係

1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Philippians 2:1-2
1所以,你們在基督裡若有甚麼鼓勵,有甚麼愛心的安慰,有甚麼靈裡的契通,有甚麼慈悲和憐憫, 就應當有同樣的思想,同樣的愛心,要心志相同,思想一致,使我充滿喜樂。腓 立 比 書 2:1-2

2. True Love Begins With A “You Before Me” Mindset 真愛的起頭是「你優先」的心態

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:  Who, being in very natureGod, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Philippians 2:5-8
你們應當有這樣的思想,這也是基督耶穌的思想。(全節或譯:“你們當以基督耶穌的心為心。”) 他本來有 神的形象,卻不堅持自己與 神平等的地位, 反而倒空自己,取了奴僕的形象,成為人的樣式; 既然有人的樣子,就自甘卑微,順服至死,而且死在十字架上。腓 立 比 書 2:5-8

3. True Love Avoids Three “Me First” Traps 真愛避免三個「我優先」的陷阱

Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way.  1 Corinthians 13:4-5
愛是恆久忍耐,又有恩慈。愛是不嫉妒,不自誇,不張狂; 不作失禮的事,不求自己的益處,哥 林 多 前 書 13:4-5

  • The boasting trap 自誇的陷阱

The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many warriors with you. If I let all of you fight the Midianites, the Israelites will boast to me that they saved themselves by their own strength.  Judges 7:2
耶和華對基甸說:“與你在一起的人太多,我不能把米甸人交在你們手中,免得以色列人向我自誇:‘是我們自己的手救了我們。’ 士 師 記 7:2

Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.  Psalm 20:7
有人靠車,有人靠馬。我們卻靠耶和華我們 神的名。詩 篇 20:7

  • The pride trap 驕傲的陷阱

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.  Proverbs 16:18
在滅亡以先,必有驕傲;在跌倒以前,心中高傲。箴 言 16:18

  • The “my way” trap 「我的方式」的陷阱

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:3-4
不要自私自利,也不要貪圖虛榮,只要謙卑,看別人比自己強; 各人不要單顧自己的事,也要顧別人的事。腓 立 比 書 2:3-4
