Good Is Not Necessarily Good, Bad Is Not Necessarily Bad
This is a good story that was sent to me in my mother tongue language by a colleague from work. I felt it is worth sharing it in Cyza Sector so all of you can read and get the positive message inside it. I’ve translated the story and adjust it a little bit. I hope you enjoy and learn the precious message.
Once upon a time, there was a very poor old man who lived with his son and a female horse.
One day, the female horse went for graze but did not come back. All the villagers came to express their condolences over the loss of the poor old man favorite horse. He replied “The good is not necessarily good, the bad is not necessarily bad”. The villagers do not understand what the old man said and they continue to pass.
After quite some time, the female horse surprisingly returned back and brought over five strong male horses. The old man was very happy and all the villagers came to congratulate him. He thus replied “The good is not necessarily good, the bad is not necessarily bad”. The villagers increasingly got confused and do not understand the answer to the old man’s statement.
Then one day, a tragedy happened. The old man’s son was seriously injured when one of the horses suddenly kicked his son. The son experienced permanent disability as a result from the incident. He was very sad for his son and the villagers once again came to express their condolences. He thus said “The best is not always good, the bad is not necessarily bad.” As usual, the villagers remained confused with the old man’s statement.
Day after day, season after season, the country where the old man lives faced with war. All young man in the country were demanded to join the arm forces (soldier) except the defective child in the village (the old man’s son).
It was destined that the country faced an unfortunate defeat and all the young man were killed. Now, there is no young man except for the old man’s son who at that time has grown up to be a young man. The young man become a husband to one of the girl in the village who came from a wealthy family. So once again all the villagers came to congratulate the old man. He repeated his favourite praise “The best is not always good, the bad is not necessarily bad.”
Moral story: Do not regret or cry upon the tests that are sent to you, your family or your love ones. If God will, all deficiencies are purely tests from the God which that later you will see the wisdom and benefit from it.
