Valentines and the Valley of Dry Bones

David C

I’m a physician that often bridges very dif­fer­ent worlds. Voca­tion­ally, my foci are in inter­nal med­i­cine and pedi­atrics. Geo­graph­i­cally, I grew up in the sub­urbs but was invited and lived "on the block". Eth­ni­cally, I’m Asian and Amer­i­can. Socially, I’m an intro­vert that enjoys pub­lic speak­ing (mainly as a plat­form for ideals). Polit­i­cally, I lean center-left but have deep Evangelical Chris­t­ian roots. Aca­d­e­m­i­cally, I’ve stud­ied engi­neer­ing, med­i­cine, and health pol­icy. Faith-wise, I am decid­edly Christian.

    Was reflecting on my expendability earlier today. So much burden to think God “needs” me to do His work. So much freedom in knowing we are His children with the privilege of going to the office with Dad each day! Even if the office stanks sometimes.

    Expendable.

    What an ugly word. 

    But this post makes me think about what Jesus said: “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first”. 

    and Paul: “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”

    and Jesus again: “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, otherwise they may also invite you in return and that will be your repayment.
    “But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

    and a lot more similar passages.
