When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and
his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole
income, lay dead in the field.|
The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel "how could you have let this happen!? The first man had everything, yet you helped him," he accused. "The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let their cow die."
"Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."
Sometimes this is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every outcome is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later.
Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels
stay in the mansion's guest room. Instead the angels were given a
space in the cold basement.
