On a particular day, two wandering seraphs sought shelter at the residence of a wealthy family. Despite their affluence, the family’s heart was cold, choosing not to offer them a room in their grand house. Instead, they designated a corner in the stark basement for their stay.

Seraphs in Two Homes: A contrast between greed and benevolence in this story

As they set up their makeshift beds, the elder seraph noticed a flaw in the wall and took it upon himself to mend it. At the curious gaze of the younger seraph, the elder merely stated, “Things aren’t always as they seem.”

The following evening, the seraphs chose to take refuge in the modest home of a couple. Despite their limited means, the pair welcomed them warmly.

After partaking in the simple feast that was laid before them, the gracious couple offered their own bed to the seraphs, ensuring a restful night.

At dawn, the seraphs found the couple in tears. Their sole cow, whose milk was their livelihood, had died.

The younger seraph, with a stirred heart, asked the elder, “How could you let this happen? You aided the first family, who had everything in their favor, yet you took away the most valued possession of this kind family.”

“Things aren’t always as they seem,” the elder seraph responded.

“At the wealthy home, I noticed that behind the wall’s flaw, a hidden treasure lay. Given the owner’s selfish disposition, I decided to conceal it further. Yet, last night, as we rested here, the angel of death came for the farmer’s wife. I offered the cow in her stead.”

Indeed, things aren’t always as they seem.
