Where I live they are constructing a super hospital. What exactly does that mean? Is that a hospital for superheroes? No, this will be a facility with hopefully better equipment and more professionals to care for the sick and injured. Whatever happens there, doctors and hospitals these days are so necessary. Why is that?
You would think with all the progress in understanding the body and better drugs, better equipment and better training we would need less hospitals and not more. What is happening and not happening in the field of health care?
I think the problem is that we leave thedoctors to take care of our health needs and do very little to take care of our own health. We may think that doctors and hospitals will do magic when we get sick and quickly heal us.
However we may be living an illusion. I’ve seen some dear friends go the hospital and they never came back home again.
While doctors and hospitals do the best they can, they are not magicians. They are not miracle-workers. We need to care for ourselves also. We
According to Matthew 4:24; all that were ill and came to Jesus were cured quickly of their illnesses and infirmities. Jesus was a real miracle-worker. Doctors and hospitals are limited in what they can do.
So, let’s do our part in taking care of these wonderful bodies that God gave us. Let us take time to learn about what makes the body sick and what helps it to stay healthy. There is so much we can prevent if we learn how.
We appreciate the work of dedicated doctors and the fine hospitals that we have when we need them. It is better however to have as little need of them as possible. A healthy person will not need doctors and hospitals as much as a sick one.
