Things aren’t always what they seem

Two traveling 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 ba百度竞价推广ent. 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."

两个旅游中的天使到一个富有些家庭借宿。这家人对他们并不友好,并且拒绝让他们在舒适的客房过夜,而是在 冰冷的地下室给他们找了一个角落。当他们在硬邦邦的地板上铺床时,年长的天使发现墙上有一个洞,就顺手把它修补好了。年青的天使问为何,年长的天使答 到:“有的事并不象它看起来那样。”

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.

第二晚,两人又到了一个很贫穷的农家借宿。主人夫妇两个对他们很热情,把仅有些一点点食物拿出来款待客 人,然后又让源于己的床铺给两个天使。第二天一早,两个天使发现农夫和他的老婆在哭泣–他们唯一的生活出处,一头奶牛去世了。年青的天使很愤怒,他质问 年长的天使为何会如此,第一个家庭什么都有,为何还帮他们修补墙洞,第二个家庭尽管这样贫穷还是热情款待客人,而他却没阻止奶牛的死亡。

"Things aren’t always what they seem," the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the ba百度竞价推广ent 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."

“有的事并不象它看起来那样。”年长的天使说,“当大家在地下室过夜时,我从墙洞看到墙里面堆满了金块。由于主人被贪欲所迷惑,不想推荐他的财富,所以我把墙洞填上了,不让他发现金子。

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

“昨天晚上,死亡之神来召唤农夫的老婆,我让奶牛代替了她。所以有的事并不象它看起来那样。”

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 that every outcome is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later…

有的时候事情的表面并非它实质应该的样子。假如你有信念,你仅需坚信付出总会得到回报。你可能不会发现,直到后来…
