Am I a good spiritual doctor?
One day, when I was reading a newspaper, an article caught my attention. It was about the admission criteria of a medical university in the United States. According to the article, when they select new students, they regard personality as more important than the grades in their studies. They emphasize that it is important for doctors to have a good personality to build up trust between colleagues and communicate with patients, paying attention to their words. It is said that other prominent American university also adopt this way of selection.
I examine myself to see if I possess a good personality as a spiritual doctor, so I can heal sick souls with the new covenant: ‘Did I just try to deliver the Word, disregarding the pain of a soul? Didn’t I neglect other member’s opinions, only insisting on my own thoughts?
God’s word itself is an excellent medicine to save souls. However, there were many times when I understood the word of God just literally and tried to deliver only my knowledge. I think that I failed to save many souls because I was lacking in the ability to give spiritual treatment. Now I pledge myself to save the suffering souls with love-not with knowledge, and through communication- not through self-righteousness.
Matthew 9:12-13 “On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.””
As Jesus was a good spiritual doctor, I hope to be a good doctor to save many souls. In this last age, our God the Mother set us a good example how to be a good doctor. I will follow God the Mother with all my heart and mind and souls.
