聖經經文

Jesus said, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” “總要儆醒禱告、免得入了迷惑.你們心靈固然願意、肉體卻軟弱了。”(馬可福音 14:38)

意思

當我們說一個人精力不足無法完成工作時,我們就用The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak這句話來表示。

來源及應用

這句話源出于馬可福音14:38,指我們的弱點在于難以抗拒引誘及身體上的軟弱。 在耶穌被捕前,耶穌的門徒彼得祈禱時睡著了。耶穌回來看到彼得沒有留守就說,“總要儆醒禱告、免得入了迷惑.你們心靈固然願意、肉體卻軟弱了。”
