善良之心Gutes Herz

前幾天聽了一篇古代繼母對待兒子的善良之舉。文章中講:周朝時,魏國有位慈母,是一位叫芒卯的人的後妻。芒卯的前妻有五個兒子,前妻的五個兒子都不喜歡這個繼母,即使繼母對五個兒子很寬厚,他們仍然不喜歡繼母。有一次芒卯前妻的第三子違反了魏王的命令,依法被判處死刑。繼母為此愁苦悲傷,早晚勤奔走去營救他。有人對她說:“這幾個兒子都不喜歡你,你為何還要這樣勤勞營救而悲苦如此呢?而繼母卻說:他們的父親就是怕他們成為孤兒,所以娶我來當繼母。繼母也是人母,若不愛護她的兒女,能稱為‘慈’嗎?只愛自己親生的忽視前妻的兒女,能稱為‘義’嗎?不慈不義,憑什麼立足於世間呢?他們雖然不喜歡我,我怎麼敢忘記義理呢?”魏王敬仰她的慈義之行,就赦免了芒卯前妻三子的罪過,讓他回家。五個兒子被繼母的善良舉動所感動,從此一家人和樂融洽。

聽了這篇文章之後,真的被深深地打動。文章中的繼母即使別人再怎麼傷害她,她最終還是沒有一點怨恨,仍然守住了內心中的慈和義。在我們平時的生活中,一聼到繼母這個詞總是有一種不好的印象,就像叔叔和我們説的人們對老鼠的觀念一樣,是人們對一種事物的偏見而導致的刻板印象,其實我們做人也是一樣,要按叔叔説的做一個真正內心善良的人,而不是那種表面顯得自己很好,但內心只想著這自己的人,這樣的人即使得到了他人的認可,也逃脫不了因果報應,我們應該向文中的母親學習,擁有一個無私爲他的善良之心。

A few days ago, I heard an ancient stepmother's kindness to her son. The article said: During the Zhou Dynasty, the state of Wei had a loving mother who was the step-wife of a man named Mang Mao. Mang Mao's ex-wife has five sons, and the five sons of the ex-wife don't like the stepmother. Even though the stepmother is generous to the five sons, they still don't like the stepmother. On one occasion, the third son of Mang Mao's ex-wife violated the order of the King of Wei and was sentenced to death according to law. The stepmother was distressed by this, and ran to rescue him sooner or later. Someone said to her: "These sons don't like you, why do you still work so hard to rescue and suffer like this? But the stepmother said: Their father was afraid that they would become orphans, so he married me as a stepmother. A stepmother is also a human being. Mother, if you don't love her children, can you be called 'kindness'? Can you be called 'righteousness' if you only love your own children who ignore your ex-wife? If you are not merciful and unrighteous, how can you stand in the world? Although they don't like it I, how dare I forget righteousness?" King Wei admired her act of kindness and righteousness, so he forgave Mangmao's ex-wife and three sons' crimes and let him go home. The five sons were moved by the kindness of their stepmother, and the family has been harmonious since then.

After listening to this article, I was really moved. No matter how much others hurt her, the stepmother in the article still has no resentment and still keeps the kindness and righteousness in her heart. In our daily life, when we hear the word stepmother, we always have a bad impression. Just like our uncle and we said people's concept of mice, it is a stereotype caused by people's prejudice against one thing. The same is true for us. We should be a truly kind-hearted person according to what our uncle said, not someone who looks good on the surface, but only thinks about himself in his heart. Even if such a person is recognized by others, he will escape. Without karma, we should learn from the mother in the text and have a kind heart that is selfless for him.
