FOCUS ON THE GOOD DEEDS IN TRAGEDY

【喬靖夫:正因為人性醜惡,我們才要繼續戰鬥】聽到女嬰恐已逝世的消息,情緒很低落。相信不少人會因為被騙而憤怒,但我覺得不必。即使拐帶是假,我們當日付出的關心、同情和正義感卻是真的。再來一次,我們也該這樣做。

亦有人會因看到這樣的案件,覺得對人性失望。我倒是想,人性本來如此,有極醜陋,也有極美好。

因此我們才要繼續戰鬥。

FOCUS ON THE GOOD DEEDS IN TRAGEDY

I think most of us have learnt and experienced a lot from the recent baby murdered case during the past few weeks.

It is natural for us to be sad.

Some may even get angry because of the mother’s dishonesty.

Here I would like to share with you a view from a writer, 喬靖夫.

He thinks there is no need for us to be angry.

Though the kidnap is fake, the good deeds we have shown in the process, e.g. concern, sympathy, feeling of justice are all real.

Even something like this happen again, we still should do the same, try our very best to help.

Yes it is understandable that people may get disappointed by what the mother has done.

But it is true that human nature can be good as angel, and at the same time being evil.

Therefore, the writer thinks that is why we still need to fight.

In fact, I think not only we need to fight against crime, the fighting is also within ourselves.

It is not easy to be a good person all the time, but it is worthwhile to take little steps to be a better man.

I always think if I can do what it is said in this meaningful prayer, I can already be a better man. May I ask you to read carefully and try to act this out in every new day.

Let’s turn to our prayer book page 12, ”Prayer for A New Day”.
