出谷紀 20:1-17

瑪竇福音 13:18-23


那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「那麼,你們聽這撒種者的比喻吧!聽天國的話而不了解的,那惡者就來把撒在他心裏的奪去:這是指那撒在路旁的。那撒在石頭地裏的,即是指人聽了天國的話,立刻高興接受;但在心裏沒有根,不能持久,一旦為這話遭遇艱難或迫害,就立刻跌倒了。那撒在荊棘中的,即是指人聽了天國的話,卻有世俗的焦慮和財富的迷惑,把話蒙住了,結不出果實。那撒在好地裏的,即是指那聽了天國的話而了解的人,他當然結出果實,有結一百倍的,有結六十倍的,有結三十倍的。」

摘要:我們的心態決定我們對天主話語的接受程度。

(文/王安當神父)


這是耶穌給門徒講述的一個比喻,被稱為撒種的比喻。在這個比喻中,耶穌講述了四種不同的土壤,分別代表人們接受天主的話語和信息的心態。以下是這個比喻的簡短道理:

耶穌的撒種比喻告訴我們,天主的話語像種子一樣,洒在各種不同的心靈土壤上。第一種土壤是路邊的土壤,代表心態堅硬、不願意聆聽天主的話語,種子很快就被鳥吃掉了。第二種土壤是石頭地,代表接受天主話語的人心衝動,但沒有根基,一旦遇到困難就放棄了。第三種土壤是荊棘地,代表心態被世俗的憂慮、財富和物質所佔據,無法真正領會天主的話語。最後,第四種土壤是好土壤,代表樂意聽從天主話語的心靈,種子在這裡生根發芽,結出豐盛的果實。

這個比喻提醒我們,我們的心態決定了我們對天主話語的接受程度。如果我們的心靈堅硬,或者容易放棄,或者被世俗的憂慮所填滿,我們就無法真正明白天主的旨意。然而,如果我們樂意開放心靈,願意耐心地聆聽天主的話語,並且將其運用在生活中,我們就會結出豐盛的果實,並成為神的工人,將祂的愛和真理帶給這個世界。

因此,這個比喻提醒我們要保持敏感的心靈,時刻準備好接受天主的話語。我們應該清除心靈的石頭和荊棘,讓天主的話語深深扎根在我們的內心,並在日常生活中活出祂的真理和愛心。只有這樣,我們才能在天主的國度中結出豐盛的果實,並成為祂的忠心門徒。


Message:Our attitude determines our receptivity to God's word.

(Fr. Anthony Heng, CDD)


In the parable of the sower, Jesus teaches that God's word is like seeds sown on different types of soil, representing various attitudes people have towards receiving His message. The first type of soil is the roadside, symbolizing a hardened heart that refuses to listen to God's word, allowing the seeds to be quickly snatched away by birds. The second type of soil is the rocky ground, representing those who initially receive God's word with enthusiasm but lack depth, so they give up when faced with difficulties. The third type of soil is the thorny ground, representing hearts preoccupied with worldly worries, wealth, and material possessions, leaving no room for understanding God's word. Lastly, the fourth type of soil is good soil, representing a receptive heart willing to hear and understand God's word, allowing the seeds to take root, grow, and produce abundant fruit.


This parable reminds us that our attitude determines our receptivity to God's word. A hardened, easily discouraged, or worldly heart prevents us from truly grasping God's message. However, an open and patient heart, willing to listen to God's word and apply it in our lives, will bear abundant fruit and allow us to be God's agents of love and truth in the world.


Therefore, this parable encourages us to maintain a sensitive heart, always ready to receive God's word. We should remove the stones and thorns from our hearts, allowing God's word to take deep root within us, and live out His truth and love in our daily lives. Only then can we bear abundant fruit in God's kingdom and become faithful disciples of His.
