我不是文學家,也沒有修過文學史;我只知道我們中國人的實際智慧是一等一的。論語孟子和傳統文學中像格言一般的句子比比皆是,好像:
三人行必有吾師焉。(論語)

這句話是多麼謙卑,多麼真實,更道出了學無止境和不斷學習的精神。又好像:
愛人者人常愛之;敬人者人常敬之。(孟子)

這正像「你們願意人怎樣待你們,你們也要怎樣待人」一樣積極有效。

但是我更喜歡民間文學,一些根本不在書本上印的,通俗的、卻人人隨口說得出的話;好像:
不識字有飯吃;
不識人沒有飯吃。(蘇州、上海一帶)
不怕貨比貨;
只怕不識貨。(商人常用的口頭語)
尤其是第二句,已經那麼有效,而從口頭的俗語進入了廣告的詞彙。

而很不幸的,我們中國人的造句天才,以我們的小聰明,愛佔便宜,保護自己的利益,創造出一些似是而非的新「格言」,實際上是次等又次等的心態的表現;好像:
人不為己,天誅地滅。

我真佩服「人的話‧神的話」的編者,居然能找到那麼多「人的話」,並且以漫畫把這些表達出來。漫畫實在誇張,這些「人的話」經過一番誇張竟然變成了「鬼話」,我佩服之至。

更驚人的是編者能搜集合適的「神的話」來辟邪歸正,真正難得。以漫畫手法表達這些「人的話」,暴露了眾生相,功勞已經不淺;居然還能指出一條「神的話」的正路,使我佩服得五體投地。

我先睹為快,獲得了許多幫助;我介紹給你,希望你也獲得幫助。

有人以為畫漫畫是我的專長,其實接下「人的話‧神的話」專欄,對我來說卻是一個挑戰。

每次面對「人的話‧神的話」文稿,在反覆思想設計插畫的當中,總有機會讓我先反省自己的思想言行。常有朋友開玩笑說:「自這些大鼻禿眼的漫畫人物,可想像到慧君的模樣、德性。」嗯!真是令人作羞,雖然我不像漫畫人物中長得畸型怪狀般,但卻自其中的話與畫中,看到了不少自己的影子。

認識自己是件殘酷的事情,但若能以「神的話」勇敢地去接受自己,改變自己,那就是我繪「人的話‧神的話」最大的收獲!

有人說:神是沈默的,因為祂不輕易向人說話。其實不然。君不見整本聖經中,滿載著神的原則和標準;祂的好惡和性情;祂對人的要求和期許?

聖經是神向人啟示的一本書;是神向人說話的憑據;是一面清晰不變的鏡子。

今天,當世界的價值體系日益變動,世人逐漸慣於以醜為美,以非為是、以惡為善、以暗為光;但是聖經的鏡子,清晰如昔、絕對如昔。

我因此有了把人和神的話並列比照的想法。因為除非人能了解神的純全美善,否則無法辨別自己誤謬卑下的傾向;除非人能站在「神的話」的光中深思自省,否則不能明鑑所處世代的幽暗污濁。我們需要極力整治日益污染的生態環境;我們更需要淨化逐日被污染的思想心靈。

三年前,我開始搜集身邊的「人的話」,同時尋求切合相對的「神的話」,為了讓讀者印象鮮明,決定以漫畫的方式表達。三年來,在救世之道月刊上連續刊載。強烈的正反對比之中,產生了不少趣味,卻也帶出許多嚴肅的真理。

閱讀這本畫冊的時候,如果笑是您的第一個反應,願思考是第二個步驟;但是如果您沒有切實地遵照神的話去行,這本書的價值,只止於紙上。反之,您會發現,奇妙的事在生活中展開,因為天國已在您的心裏。

話說到此,下面就讓我們一起「照鏡子」吧?

People say, "God is silent for He does not speak to man." But He does speak to us through the Bible. God's principles and standards, His character, His likes and dislikes, as well as His expectations of Man are revealed there. The Bible is the evidence of God's communications with Man; it also serves as a clear and unchanging mirror through the ages.

The value system of this world keeps changing from day to day. People are gradually becoming used to considering ugliness as beauty, wrong as right, evil as good and darkness as light.

Therefore, I thought of putting Man's and God's thoughts side by side for comparison. Until Man realizes how perfect and beautiful God is, he won't be able to recognize his own imperfect nature. Unless Man stands in the light of God's Word, he will fail to see the darkness of the age in which he lives. Just as we must solve the increased problem of pollution on earth to live, we must also purify our hearts and minds from the daily pollution of declining standards and philosophies of the world, to lead a fulfilling life.

Three years ago, I started collecting the sayings of Man and the right scriptures to counter them. In order to create a vivid picture for the readers, it was decided to have them illustrated with cartoons. Since then, the series has been published in "Salvation Monthly", a Chinese Christian periodical.

The comparisons have produced a good amount of humor, yet the messages behind them are not to be taken lightly. When reading this book, laughing may be your first reaction, but I hope that meditation on His Word will be the second. However, if you do not follow up meditation with action, there is little value in this book. By heeding God's advice, you will discover that wonderful things are happening in your life, for the Kingdom of God is in you, when you submit to His authority.

So, let us begin to take a look into God's mirror.
