智慧人生的觀察 – 無能 Observations for a Life of Wisdom: Powerlessness

講,就天下無敵; 作,就有心無力。這豈不是我們現在實在的情況, 作一個屬神的人,我們當以敬畏神的態度來面對我們有心無力的情況,因為能力是在乎神,不在乎我們。

When it comes to our Christian walk, are we full of big talk but fail to take action? This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung exhorts us to acknowledge our powerlessness by fearing the Lord because He alone has true power.

Read Today’s Scripture Passage
