The Doctor

April 5, 2012

This is a short story to open our eyes to how we perceive our problems over another. May the Lord bless everyone who reads this..


A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call ASAP, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block.


He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor.


Once seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”


The doctor smiled and said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”


“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily


The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”


“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy.” murmured the father.


The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank God! Your son is saved!”


And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running.


“If you have any questions, ask the nurse!!”


“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait a few minutes so that I could ask about my son’s state.” The father complained to the nurse minutes after the doctor left.


The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”


NEVER JUDGE ANYONE because you never know how their life is and as to what is happening or what they’re going through.




For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Galatians 5
