‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:22-23‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Humility

Our country has been blessed with great wealth including many comforts and pleasures. These blessings have been taken for granted as we expect a certain way of life. This pandemic has shown us that our society is vulnerable. I believe God is sending us a great message to change our ways, yet we are already anticipating getting back to our normal way of life. What will it take to humble ourselves and put our faith in God? He wants us to rely on Him fully, putting our trust in Him. Growing up, Trust and Obey was one of my favorite hymns. Its words are still sweet music to my ears and the message resonates.

Perfection

Like most physicians, I am a little obsessive-compulsive, which keeps us from making critical errors clinically. Sometimes it is hard for us to accept that perfection is not possible for mere mortals. We seek to find it, but it always eludes us and can frustrate us until we realize that the pursuit in itself is enough. Trying to be as good as possible does not mean that we think we are God. Indeed, it shows that we accept our humility.
