Things Aren't Always What They Seem

Two traveiling 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 guest room. Instead the angels were given a 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, which had been their sole income, lay dead in the field. The younger angel was infuriated and asekd the older angel "How could you let this happen!? The first family had everything and you helped them. The second faimly had little but was willing to share everything and you let their 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 her the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes this is exalty what happens when things don't turn out the way we think they should. If you have faith in God, just trust that evey outcome is always to your advantage. YOu might not realize it until much later.
