36.jpg
A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.

有位年轻人即将大学毕业。数月来,他一直渴望得到某汽车商产品陈列室中的一辆跑车。他知道,他那富有的父亲肯定买得起这辆车,于是,他便跟父亲说他唯一想要的就是那辆跑车。

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautifully wrapped gift box. Curious, and somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold.

在毕业典礼即将来临的日子里,年轻人等待着父亲买下跑车的消息。终于,在毕业典礼那天上午,父亲将他叫到自己的书房,并告诉他,有这么出色的儿子他感到非常自豪而且非常爱他。他递给儿子一个包装精美的礼品盒。年轻人感到好奇,但带着些许失望地打开礼品盒,却发现里面是一本皮封面精装本《圣经》,上面以金子凸印着年轻人的名字。

Angry, he shouted at his father and said "With all your money, you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house.

年轻人怒气冲冲地向父亲喊道:“你有那么多钱,却只给我一本《圣经》?”说完,便愤怒地冲出房子。

Many years passed and the young man had become very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father now was getting old, and thought perhaps he should go see him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.

许多年过去了,年轻人已事业有成。他拥有一所漂亮的房子,一个温馨的家庭。但当意识到父亲年事已高,他想,或许应该去看看他。自从毕业那天起他就一直没有见过父亲。然而还未等他做好安排,他收到一封电报,告知他父亲已逝世,并已立下遗嘱将其所有财产转给儿子。他需要立即回家处理后事。

When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still gift-wrapped Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he was reading those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had wanted. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words "PAID IN FULL ".

当他到达父亲的房子里时,内心突然感到一阵悲伤与懊悔。他开始仔细搜寻父亲的重要文件,突然发现了那本包装依旧完好的《圣经》——还跟数年前他丢下它时一样。他眼含泪水打开《圣经》并一页一页地阅读着。他正在品读那些文字时,从《圣经》的背面掉出一把钥匙。钥匙上挂着一个标签,上面写着一个汽车经销商的名字——正是他曾渴望的那辆跑车的经销商。标签上还有他的毕业日期及“款已付清”的字样。
