Harvest of a Lifetime

许宜春  

“for you are all children of light and children of the day.”

1 Thessalonians 5:5a

That was 34 years ago.Today ,the boy is a successful architect in New York City.His father’s cabin is still there on the island in the middle of the lake.He takes his own son and daughters fishing from the same dock.

And he was right.He has never again caught such a magnificent fish as the one he landed that night long ago.But he does see that same fish again and again。every time he comes up against a question of ethics.

For,as his father taught him,ethics are simple matters of right and wrong.It is only the practice of ethics that is difficult.Do we do right when no one is looking? Do we refuse to cut corners to get the design in on time? Or refuse to trade stocks based on information that we know we aren’t supposed to have?

We would if we were taught to put the fish back when we were young。For we would have learned the truth.The decision to do right lives fresh and fragrant in our memory.It is a story we will proudly tell our friends and grandchildren.Not about how we had a chance to beat the system and took it,but about how we did the right thing and were forever strengthened.

一生的收获

“ 你们都是光明之子,都是白昼之子。”

----帖前 5:5

那件事已经过去34年了。而今,男孩已经成为纽约城里一位成功的建筑师。他父亲的小屋仍然伫立于湖心岛上。他也曾带着自己的儿子和女儿回到同一个码头去钓鱼。

他当时的猜想是对的。他再也没有见过那么大的鱼了,就像很久以前的那天晚上所钓到的那样。但是,在他每次面对道德难题时, 那条大鱼总会浮现在他的眼前。

因为正如父亲告诉他的那样,道德就是简单的对和错的问题,但困难的是付诸行动。在无人旁观时,我们的行为能否仍然正当?为了将图纸及时送到,我们是否会抄近路?或者在明知不应该的情况下,我们是否会将公司股份卖掉?

当我们年轻的时候.如果有人要让我们把鱼放回去,我们应该那样去做,因为我们将从中学到真理。选择去做正确事情的决定将在我们的记忆里变得深刻而清晰。我们可以把这个故事自豪地讲给我们的朋友和后辈听。这并不是关于如何攻击某种体制并战胜它,而是关于如何去做正确的事情,从而不断完善自己。
