When God Created Man



GOD created the DONKEY and told him, 'You will work tireless from sunrise up to sunset, carrying heavy bags on your back, you will eat grass. You will not have intelligence and you will live 50 years. You will be a DONKEY!'

The DONKEY answered, 'I will be a DONKEY, but living 50 years is too much, give me only 20 years!' and GOD gave him 20 years.

GOD created DOG and told him ' You will look after man's house, you will be his best friend, you will eat whatever they give you and you will live 25 years, You will be a DOG!'

The DOG answered 'GOD, living 25 years is too much, give only 10 years!' and GOD gave him 10 years.

GOD created the MONKEY and told him, 'you will jump from branch to branch you will do silly things, you will be amusing and you will live 20 years, you will be a MONKEY!'

The MONKEY answered ' GOD, living 20 years is too much , give me only 10 years!' and GOD gave him 10 years.


Finally,

GOD created MAN and told him, 'you will be a MAN the only rational being on this earth and you will use your intelligence to control other animals, you will dominate the world and you will live for 20 years.

The MAN answered, GOD I will be a man but living 20 years is not enough, why don't you give me the 30 years that the DONKEY refused, the 15 years that the DOG didn't want and the 10 years that the MONKEY refused ?'

That was exactly what GOD did, and since then:



MAN lives 20 years like a MAN,

then he gets married and spends 30 years like a DONKEY, working and carrying the load on his back.

Then, when his children leave he spends 15 years like a DOG looking after the house and eating whatever is given to him.

Then he gets old, retires and spends 10 years like a MONKEY, jumping from house to house or from children to children, doing silly things to amuse his grandchildren!





上帝造人的啟發


上帝創造了驢子並告訴牠︰你將從早到晚不停的工作,背負重物。你只能吃草,你將不會擁有智慧。你有50年的壽命,你是一隻驢子!

驢子回答說︰我是隻驢子,但活50年太久了,讓我活20年就好了!於是上帝給了牠20年的壽命。

上帝創造了狗並告訴牠:你必須替人類看家,你是人類最忠實的朋友,你只能吃人類給你的任何東西。而你可以有25年的壽命,你是一隻狗!

狗回答說:活25年太久了,讓我活10年就好了!於是上帝給了牠10年的壽命。

上帝創造了猴子並告訴牠:你必須在樹上跳來跳去,做一些蠢事讓人開心。 你有20年的壽命,你是隻猴子!

猴子回答說:上帝,活20年太久了,讓我活10年就好了!上帝也同意了。


最後,

上帝創造了人類並告訴他:你是人類,地球上唯一的理性生物,你將運用智慧去控制其他的動物並主宰世界。而你可以有20年的壽命。

人類說:上帝,我是人類,但20年的壽命實在不夠,何不把驢子放棄的30年、狗放棄的15年、及猴子放棄的10年都給我呢?

一言為定, 上帝回答。



於是乎,人類過了20年像人樣的生活。

結婚後花了30年像隻驢子一樣的背負重擔。

當他的孩子離家後,又花了15年如狗一般的看家、吃任何別人給他的東西、然後漸漸老去而退休。

剩下的10年,他像猴子般的在屋子和孩子間轉來轉去,盡做些蠢事為的是取悅兒孫!
