記得當我起大學讀緊 Project Management 時,有一課講專業操守,有一條功課的題目是講到在投標程序時你發現上司有不公平的操作,你會如何處理呢?而那條題目的參考答案是這樣的

…. Inform your manager what you plan to tell the customer. If your manager forbids you to do what is ethical, it is time to look for another employer. (Is this the best thing for you to do? I don’t know. There is a risk that you may lose your job. If you are not very good at what you do, you may not be able to find another job soon. You may become depressed by being out of work. You would hate me because I said it was the right thing to do. I cannot say what the best thing is for you to do. Everyone sets a different ethical standard for him- or herself. Act according to your values, abilities and the risks you can afford.)

我地又可以諗下,如果這個面道德決擇的人是你的朋友,你又會如何勸他?我覺得這份功課題目的參考答案好像一個朋友的勸勉,我欣賞他客觀地分析你作抉擇面對的處境,再叫你反思,而非直接把答案的帽子扣到你的頭上。反觀有時基督徒的回應卻是一味叫人憑信心去行,我覺得這是冷漠的回應,迅速終止溝通,不願了解對方心情。

耶穌也說過「有誰出去打仗不計算代價?」我們作決定是憑信心,但也要有決心去承擔一切可能的代價。耶穌不要我們如機械人般去跟從衪,衪卻要我們憑自由意志甘心樂意地跟從衪。沒錯,真理是絕對的,但向人傳達真理卻是要以諸般的智慧和愛心去行,我們千萬不要以為自己擁有絕對答案,就要像輸入資料到電腦一樣要求別人全盤順服接受這答案。

對基督徒而言,我們會如何回應 — ‘Act according to your values, abilities and the risks you can afford’ 這問題?我地所能承受的代價,只在於今生所見嗎?(接著的層次就真是要進入信心的部份了!)
