Father's Gift

父亲的礼物

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.

一个年轻人将要从大学毕业。很长时间以来,他一直很喜欢在汽车店展厅里的一辆漂亮的赛车。因为他父亲完全买得起这辆车,因此他告诉父亲,那就是他要的一切。

As Graduation Day approached, the young man waited for his present. On the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his 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 beautiful box. Curious, and somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angry, he raised his voice to his father and said, “With all your money, you give me a Bible?” and rushed out of the house.

随着毕业的临近,年轻人等着他的礼物。在他毕业的那天早上,父亲把他叫到书房,告诉他自己有这么个好儿子多么骄傲,告诉他自己多么爱他。他把一个漂亮的盒子递给了他。年轻人怀着好奇心,也多少有点失望,打开了盒子,发现里面有一本精美的《圣经》,上面有他烫金的名字。他生气地对他父亲高声说道你有那么多钱,就给我一本《圣经》?” 说着气呼呼地跑出了屋子。

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and needed help. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegraph 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,年轻人在生意上很成功。他有一个美满幸福的家,但意识到父亲已年迈,需要帮助。自从毕业之后,他一直没有见过父亲。在他还没有来得及安排看望父亲之前,他便收到一封电报,告诉他父亲已经去世了,立下遗嘱把他所有的财产都留给儿子。他需要立即回家,料理事务。

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. Suddenly, 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 desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words PAID IN FULL.

当他回到父亲的屋子的时候,他的心突然充满了痛苦与悔恨。他开始寻找父亲的重要文件,看到了那本包装精美的《圣经》,跟他好多年以前丢下时完全一样。他含着眼泪打开了《圣经》,开始一页一页地翻。突然,一把汽车钥匙从书的封底掉了下来。上面有车店名字的签条,跟他想要的赛车的车店名字一样。签条上有他毕业的日期,还写着“付讫”。
