Things aren’t always what they seem
A big angel and a little angel were travelling when it suddenly got dark. The big angel told the little angel, “Let’s look for a place to sleep then we’ll continue with our journey in the morning.”
So, they found a poor man who offered them a place to spend the night. He treated them with his best care, gave them best food and best place to sleep. When the morning came, the big angel killed the poor man’s cow and left. That cow was the only treasure the poor man had, the only source of income for it gave him milk. He really cried for this loss.
The night came again while the two angels were on their journey. But again, they looked for a place to spend the night and this time they found a rich man who gave them a place to spend the night. He gave them poor treatment, bad food and offered them to sleep in a store instead. While in the store, the big angel saw a crack on the wall and he sealed it.
As they continued with their journey in the morning, the little angel asked, “We were at the poor man’s place, he treated us well but you killed his only cow. Then we meet a rich man who treats us bad and you seal a crack on the wall of his store. Why?”
“You see little angel, things aren’t always what they seem…” said the big angel “…an angel of death came when we were at the poor man’s home and he wanted to take his child but I let him take the cow because he had treated us well. But as for the rich man, that crack meant an opening for more blessings coming but because of the way he treated us, I chose to block the blessing.”
Things aren’t always what they seem. Everything that happens in your life is for a good reason so long as you keep good will, clear intentions and do the right things.
The Holy Book says, “All things work for good for those who love God.”
So, when things go wrong, just don’t go with them. When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing one of the two things will happen; There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly. Keep going!
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
