doctor's life support

7th January: Attitudes

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5 (NIV)

`I've got to look good on Prof's ward round today!'

  • Do nothing out of selfish ambition ...
`I'm going to talk to him afterwards about his Senior House Officer post, I really am the best applicant!'

  • ... or vain conceit,
`Oh don't bother me now, nurse, can't you see I'm very busy?'

  • but in humility ...
`No, I'm not going to do it, anyway, it's not my job, I am a doctor!'

  • ... consider others better than yourselves.
`I just hope he doesn't make a fuss again about that old bed-blocker! (one who occupies a much needed bed).'

  • Look not only to your own interests ...,
`It would look good if I could get her transferred before next week!'

  • ... but also to the interests of others.
Now read Philippians 2:3-11 (NIV) and ask yourself:

  • Am I motivated by selfish ambition?
  • Am I conceited?
  • Is my work always more important than that of others?
  • Am I prepared to be a servant?
  • Who matters most? I or my patients?
Thank you Lord that you humbled yourself -- even to death on a cross -- for me. Help me to humble myself for you.
