The Seven Words I Most Long to Hear

Faith Hall Stage Side

Living a life that pleases God…shouldn’t that be a top priority for all followers of Christ? Christians in healthcare have generally been blessed with training, resources and access to people who are in greatest need, often on the fringes of society. The level of trust of healthcare professionals is often high. God has also entrusted us with time, talents and treasure. Paul told us that “it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2, NIV 1984). Jesus told a poignant and powerful parable recorded in Matthew 25 to motivate us, His disciples, 2,000 years later to be faithful stewards. This parable also serves as a great caution to examine our hearts, guard our hearts and give our hearts to please the Great Physician who entrusts us with great responsibility.
