最高貴的義舉

作者:Zheng Jian, Dora Li;編譯:Ariel Tian,Alice Chen

很久以前,有一位富有的商人。他覺得自己年老體衰,時日無多,想把他的遺產留給三個兒子中的一個。

有一天,他把三個兒子叫來,對他們說:「你們去周遊世界,一年之後回來,告訴我你們在旅途中的最引以為傲的義舉。我會把所有的遺產留給你們中行最高貴的義舉之人。」

一年之後,三個兒子回來了。大兒子說:「我遇見一個陌生人,他給了我一袋金幣讓我為之保管。不久之後他去世了,我把所有的金幣都還給了他的家人。」

商人說:「誠信是你的性格,這並不是最高貴的義舉。」

二兒子說:「我來到一個貧窮的村莊,看到一個男孩掉進河裏。我立刻跳下去救了他。」

商人誇獎了他:「救人是你的天性,這也不是最高貴的義舉。」

三兒子說:「我有一個敵人,他幾次三番想要殺我,每次我都險些命喪黃泉。一晚,我見他睡在懸崖邊的樹枝上。我只要輕輕推一下他就跌入無底深淵,粉身碎骨。但是,我卻叫醒他讓他趕緊回家。我想這也許不是最高貴的義舉······」

商人聽完後說:「你能夠戰勝內心的怨憤,對敵人伸出援手。這是最高貴和神聖的義舉,而你做到了。我會把我所有的遺產都留給你。」

人性本善。善待他人是我們為人應盡的責任,不該被認為是傑出的貢獻。我們並不鼓勵在教育中將子女相互比較。但是,用慈悲和善念對待敵人,以德報怨,誠為世間高貴的義舉之一。

Forgiveness is the answer; if you cannot forgive others, then how can you ask for forgiveness for yourself?

Wonderful story. I thought all the sons responded well but the last son took it further : do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

PS. I saw the mug and would like to purchase one. Tell me how. Thank you
