When I was down or in a bad mood, I would simply show a long face to the people around me. However, when I read the Book of Matthew 7:2--“With the measure you use, it will be measured to you,” I was surprised and decided to carry out the verse! I started to look into my heart and examine my thoughts. This verse reminded me of a life principle--I have to treat others the way I’d like to be treated. I began learning to manage my thoughts and emotions to conform with God’s word. I learned to smile even when I didn’t feel like smiling; I was willing to be kind to others when I didn’t think they deserve it.

Now I have a niece. She’s almost one and a half. She likes to imitate those around her intuitively. She’s like a mirror! She’s able to vividly replicate my behaviors and habits. I was shocked to find that she picked up not only the good behaviors but also the bad ones! I realize that I need to set a good example for her. I pay more attention to how I deal with things and what I say when I am with her. The last thing I would like to see is that my bad temper might be replicated in her! My fast-growing little niece teaches me a lesson on this precious life principle—I should treat others right in the name of Love.

以前我如果心情不好時,若有人跟我說話我的語氣就會很不好。但自從我看到聖經馬太福音七章二節中說到;「你們用甚麼量器來量,上帝也要用同樣的量器量給你們。」我覺得這句話很有道理。我開始思考及反省,因這段經文提醒我,想要別人怎麼對待你,也當如何對待別人。所以,我開始學習管理自己的情緒,使我無論心情何等的糟,都要用和氣的態度對待別人。

我有一個姪女,快一歲半,她的學習模仿能力超強,她就像鏡子中縮小版的我,我的一舉一動,她大都能模仿,是好是壞她都吸收。真讓我驚訝。以致我需要花時間用柔和的態度勸導她。當我意識到這個情形時,我開始在她面前謹言慎行,避免我的壞習慣也成為她的壞習慣。她,成為我的活鏡子,讓我實際體驗 神的話是如此又真又活。
