THE CHINESE FARMER
There is a Chinese story of an
old farmer who had an old
horse for tilling his fields. One
day the horse escaped into the
hills and, when all the farmer's
neighbours sympathised 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 wild horses from
the hills and this time the
neighbours congratulated the
farmer on his good luck. His
reply was, 'Good luck? Bad luck?
Who knows?'
Then, when the farmer's son
attempted 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? Bad
luck? Who knows?
Moral : In every situation you
find yourself give thanks to God,
because what you see as bad
might be an escape route for
you.
