24-25 Waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.

– Romans 8:24-25

The Message Version (MSG)


24-25 等待不會使我們的意志消沉,就像懷孕的母親在等待中充滿期盼一般。在等候的過程裡,我們變得寬廣。當然,我們不曉得是什麼使我們變得寬廣。然而,只要我們等候愈久,我們就愈寬廣,也愈充滿喜樂地期盼。

— 羅馬書八章 24-25 節
