事情不一定總是像你看到的

作者:佚名 / 中譯:以恩

有兩個在旅途中的天使在一個富裕的家庭裡暫住一夜。這個有錢人的家庭對他們非常粗魯,不讓他們住在別墅裡的客人房,只讓他們住在地下室又冷又小的房間裡。當他們在硬地板上準備舖床睡覺時,那位比較年長的天使看到牆壁上有個洞就把它修補好。年輕的天使看了問他為什麼這樣做,年長的天使回答:「事情不一定像你所看到的。」

第二天晚上,這兩位天使到了一個很窮苦的家庭借住,這家庭的主人是個很窮但很好客的農夫和妻子。在分享了他們有限的食物之後,他們把自己的睡房讓給天使們住,希望天使們能有好的休息。次日清早,當天使起床後,發現農夫和子妻子眼中含淚,因為他們唯一的乳牛死了,牠生產的牛奶是他們唯一收入的來源。年輕的天使非常生氣,質問年長的天使怎可讓此事發生?第一個家庭什麼都有,你卻幫助他們;第二個家庭只有很少的東西卻很願意分享,你卻讓他們的乳牛死了?

「事情不一定像你所看到的。」年長的天使說:「當我們住在別墅的地下室時,我從那個破牆洞中看到牆內藏有金子,因為那家主人十分貪婪,也不願意與人分享他的好運,所以我把牆洞補好,不讓他找到金子。」

「昨晚我們睡在農夫的床上,死亡的天使來找農夫的妻子,我就把乳牛交給他。事情不一定像你所看到的。」

有時候,有些事情就是這樣發生,好像和我們預期的不一樣。但是假如你有信心,你要相信神在每件事上都有最美好的旨意。你可能不會一下子就知道,直到一段時間過後......

THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM

Anonymous

Two travelling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guestroom. Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest. When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field? The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen? The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused. The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die.

"Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it."

"Then last night as we slept in the farmer's bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust God that every outcome is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later...
