I worked for the past 10 years as an LPN in healthcare, having worked in a hospital, home heath and family medicine. I have over the years worked with some excellent physicians and honorable people. I always understood that what these people did, what we all did was by the grace of God who was the true Healer. We were his Hands and a Fingers.
Those who chose to become physicians give up much in life for the welfare of others. Honor them and give them a break the next time you think Dr. Google knows better.
Our health is important to the Lord and it is essential for a healthy walk with Christ. We must do what we can to help our God given bodies work as well as possible. Although we are indeed wasting away day by day we still bear a responsibility to care for our bodies, The temple of Christ and The Person of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
Luke 21:34 “Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap.” 1 Timothy 4:8 “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”
God has also in this time in history blessed us with medical resources and we should take advantage of them, they are a gift.
