疫境中的豐盛

​新冠病毒散佈全球已是不爭事實,到今天澳洲還未到全面爆發階段,不過病毒進入了社區,無法完全被堵截,亦是明顯可見。​這表示人類,不管在那一個國家,我們都要長期受到病毒的威嚇。很多人覺得這就是世界末日,人心惶恐。有人屯積衛生紙、米、罐頭等日用品,純粹表達心中的恐慌。是的,數十年來,人類在科技的進步、國家社會鼓吹合作和共同發展、及長時間的和平,已經令人以為沒有可以威脅人類的存在的事。不過,這些看不見的冠狀病毒,以無比的速度擴散,令人再一次知道自己的渺小。

澳洲政府現時仍實施堵截政策,只是隨著病毒全球擴散,相信澳洲很快會進入在社區中偵察及防止感染的階段。到那時,人要更注重衛生,令到病毒無法在社區中生存及擴散。當人受感染及發病時,要避免與人接觸,減低病毒擴散速度。受感染者要受到適當的治療,減低死亡的可能性。更盼望科學家們能盡快找到對抗病毒的治療方法,人類才能從這困局中走出來。

中國以極大力度,停止整個社會運作,看來是成功地把病毒暫時圍堵著,不過同時也付上巨大的經濟代價。至今停了的工廠無法全面復工,在未來日子,人民生活將面對著極大的壓力。全球經濟即時插水,一些行業如航空、餐飲、旅遊業等立時進入了嚴冬,大蕭條已是無法避免。澳洲總理莫里森將在本週發表剌激經濟的­24億元計劃,盼望能使澳洲在這全球困境中,受到最小的影響。

歡欣機構在上一期,刊出了一個廣告,表明「小至看不見的病毒,讓我們活在恐懼、灰心、絕望;大到無處不在的神,給我們帶來平安、豐盛、永恒」,我相信這是很重要的。病毒和神都是看不見卻又是我們知道都存在的。我們對付病毒的方法是堵截、阻止它傳播、減慢他的傳播速度、研發疫苗及特效藥及適當照顧受感染者。我們每一天的生活也要調整,經濟受壓的情況也不會即時消失。我們是否願意重新找尋那無處不在卻又無法看得見的神,給我們平安喜樂的心,每一天仍譧卑地活在盼望之中?

豐盛不是沒有缺乏,而是在知道我們有的,已是超過我們需要,神已經在供應著。

Abundance in Pandemic

It is inevitable that COVID-19 will become global pandemic. Australia is still not severely affected but the virus obviously is with the community.

So the whole world is going to live with this virus. Some people in panic mode see it as the end of the world. Some people stockpile daily items such as toilet rolls, rice, canned food etc in fear. Yes, for decades through technological advancement, national mutual collaboration and prolong peace it seemed mankind is unbeatable. But the rapid spread of this invisible virus is telling how helpless is mankind.

Our government has been using the border control tactic but as the pandemic develops, we shall need better detection and prevention at the community level. Personal hygiene is imperative to control community spreading especially for those who feel contracted. Good medical treatment is needed to suppress mortality, before scientists can come up with the vaccines and medicines to tackle.

China has been forcibly hard in containing the epidemic, at a great economic cost though. National production has been vastly cut and people will suffer for long. Global recession is round the corner as major industries such as aviation, catering and tourism dive. PM Morrison will soon announce measures to stimulate local economy in the hope of the least impact on our side.

In our last issue REJOICE organization published a all important  statement “a minute virus can make us in fear, helpless and hopeless. But our greatest God can give us peace, abundance and eternity. Both virus and God are invisible to us although we know they are there. We aim to block and reduce the spread of virus, and we use vaccine and medication to cure victims. We need to adjust our daily life and cope with the economic hardship. We should also aim to humbly look upon the all mighty God for His daily provision of peace, joy and hope.

​Abundance doesn’t equal to full possession of everything but just knowing what’s given to us by God suffice what we need.
