Old Millionaire’s Wisdom  老富翁的智慧

                                 中文 /何绮华  翻译/David Li

有一个老富翁,想死后进天堂。于是,他宣告要把财产送给有需要的人

  An old millionaire wanted to go to heaven after he died. As a result, he announced that he would give away all his wealth to the needy.

 

不到一天的时间,他家就被从四面八方的人包围起来,吵吵闹闹的抢着要他的财产,老富翁不知道该怎么办,竟然昏死过去。

  Not even before a day’s time, his home was surrounded by people from everywhere, nosily asking for his wealth. The millionaire was so distressed from not knowing what to do, suddenly passing out.

 

  天使要把老富翁送进地狱。祂说:“那么多人为了得到你的财产,变成敌人,太可怕了!

 An angel wanted to send the millionaire to hell. “People wanted your money so much that they became enemies. How terrible!” said the angel.

  

“可是我的出发点是善良的啊!”富翁争辩着,天使叹了一口气说:“想上天堂,除了善良,还要有智能啊。”天使愿意给富翁一个机会。

    “But I meant well!” argued the millionaire. The angel sighed and said, “If you want to go to heaven, you need not only compassion but also wisdom.” The angel decided to give the millionaire a second chance.

 

富翁又活过来了,他对大家说:“一件善事,一块金币;所做的善事越大,金币越多。”这时,所有的纷争平息下来了。一段日子以后,富翁的钱分光了,但是许多人开始喜欢帮助别人的感觉,所得到的钱也愿意和别人分享。

      The millionaire came back to life. He said to everyone, “One golden coin for every good deed you do. The more good deeds you do, the more money you get.” Now, all the conflicts were resolved. After a while, the millionaire gave away all his money, but more and more people started loving how it felt to help other. And they were willing to share their money with other.

 

当然,最后这老富翁如愿的上了天堂。

Of course, the millionaire went to heaven as he wished.
