(Memorization Scripture 20-21)
20 according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, 26 that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.
One chapter of Proverbs per day in January: Proverbs 3
20 照著我所切慕、所盼望的，沒有一事叫我羞愧，只要凡事放膽，無論是生是死，總叫基督在我身上照常顯大。21 因我活著就是基督，我死了就有益處。 22 但我在肉身活著，若成就我工夫的果子，我就不知道該挑選什麼。 23 我正在兩難之間，情願離世與基督同在，因為這是好得無比的； 24 然而我在肉身活著，為你們更是要緊的。 25 我既然這樣深信，就知道仍要住在世間，且與你們眾人同住，使你們在所信的道上又長進又喜樂， 26 叫你們在基督耶穌裡的歡樂因我再到你們那裡去，就越發加增。
