Good Luck Bad Luck!
There is a Chinese story
of a farmer who used an old horse to till his fields. One day, the horse escaped
into the hills and when the farmer's neighbors sympathized with the old man over
his bad luck, the farmer replied, "Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?" A
week later, the horse returned with a herd of horses from the hills and this
time the neighbors congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was,
"Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?"
Then, when the farmer's son was attempting to
tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone
thought this very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, "Bad
luck? Good luck? Who knows?"
Some weeks later, the army marched into the
village and conscripted every able-bodied youth they found there. When they saw
the farmer's son with his broken leg, they let him off. Now was that good luck
or bad luck?
Everything that seems on the surface to be an
evil may be a good in disguise. And everything that seems good on the surface
may really be an evil. So we are wise when we leave it to God to decide what is
good fortune and what misfortune, and thank him that all things turn out for
good with those who love him.
