My Husband Put Others First During a Tribulation
(Minghui.org) My husband was deceived by the Chinese Communist Party and had misunderstandings about Falun Gong. When he saw me reading Falun Gong books, he would verbally abuse me.
He fell from the roof one day on a construction job. It was a really bad accident. He was unconscious and nobody believed he would ever wake up. My mother-in-law cried terribly. But Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, has told us that if a person practices Falun Gong, his or her whole family will benefit.
I asked our neighbors to move him to his bed, and I played the audio recordings of Master Li's lectures next to him. Before the first lecture was over, he woke up. Everybody was amazed. My husband said that, if it wasn't for Falun Gong, he wouldn't have been able to regain consciousness. He and his mother now both believe that Falun Gong is great.
I told my husband to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as often as he could. I also told him to prioritize the needs of others and always consider them first. He always says, “Yes, I remember all of that. I am very compassionate now. I feel sad when I see other people suffering.”
One day, another motorcycle hit his at a very high speed, and he and his motorcycle flew into the air. He fell down, bounced up, and landed some 10 yards away. Everybody who witnessed the accident was stunned. He thought, “That's it. I'm going to die today.” But when he opened his eyes, he discovered that he was uninjured except for a little pain in his buttocks. He then got up, and even the pain in his buttocks was gone. He was amazed and then realized that Falun Dafa had saved him.
His two-month-old bike was destroyed, though. He held up the guy who'd caused the accident and asked him to pay for the damage. The fellow said, “You can take my motorcycle, or you can take my life.” But his motorcycle was old and in very bad condition, so my husband turned him down. The guy said, “I don't have any money. Either take this bike or my life. You choose.”
My husband believed him, so he let him go without taking any compensation. He got home and told me about it. I asked him if he had gotten the troublemaker's contact information. He said, “Why do I need his contact information if I don't plan on getting any money from him? He looks poor, and things must be difficult for him. He said he didn't even have any money for breakfast, so I took him to a restaurant and bought him a bowl of noodles.”
I was amazed that my husband could do that.
He took his smashed-up bike to the garage. The mechanic heard his story and was amazed that my husband wasn't hurt. When the mechanic heard that my husband even treated the guy to noodles, his surprise turned to respect. “It is very rare nowadays for anyone to be that good,” the mechanic said. Then he added, “Good is rewarded with good. You did a good deed, so I will do one, too. I will give you a discount that will save you several hundred yuan (roughly US$100). I promise you a brand new motorcycle.”
My husband said he didn't want the discount, but the mechanic insisted: “What you did really touched me. You really are a good guy. And thank you for telling me about 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' I'll say that often, too.”
I was very happy for my husband. He used to be so attached to money. I often told him about Falun Gong's teachings, so he changed.
About 30 laborers at a construction site near our house also heard about the incident. They all praised my husband and Falun Gong. “Good people will be protected by the divine,” said one. Another said, “We will remember 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'”
