51. Cherishing Your Blessings
1 I am an insignificantly small person. All I do is deliver God’s messages and other messages from above.
1 我個人實在太渺小了，不過是傳達 上帝的意旨，傳達上天的消息。
2 I am asking you today, my fellow strivers, to cherish your blessings. That is to say, do not focus on excessive enjoyment.
3 God secures Taiwan. It is for the people of Taiwan to save their close to one billion and one hundred million fellow countrymen in Mainland China after they, themselves, are saved. God does not want people in Taiwan to align themselves with places like Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo, Paris, and London for the enjoyment of materialistic life.
4 For instance, most strivers have their private cars. Cars are means of transportation. They are not considered luxury items. Cars that are manufactured domestically are very good as well, so why are you buying imported cars which cost several millions [New Taiwan Dollars]? This is not considered cherishing your blessings and it is not accumulating virtues.
5 Where did your fortune come from? Was it given to you by God? You are blessed with it today, but if you do not cherish your blessings, you will no longer receive any.
5 你的財富從那裡來？都是 上帝賜予的。你若不惜福，當然不會再賜給你。
