兩難之間的處境 Caught Between Two Difficult Situations

在我們人生中常常會遇到一種兩難之間的處境, 不知道當怎樣去處理。中國人有一句話說: 順得哥情失嫂意。意思是讓哥哥滿意了卻得罪了嫂嫂, 意思是很難讓雙方都滿意。以斯帖記第四章就出現了這樣的一個處境。這也是我們人生常常遇到的困難,我們當怎樣去面對, 以斯帖記第四章提供給我們處理的原則

Ever been caught between a rock and a hard place? Listen to Rev. Jeremiah Cheung this week as he draws from Esther Chapter 4 to help us learn how to choose when the only options available to us are troubling and unfavorable.
