You may have seen this shared before, however it is one that has stayed with me for a long time – its message resonating. Take a couple of minutes to read through the following and let its message inspire you…

A doctor entered the hospital in a hurry, after being called in for an urgent surgery.

He raced in the entrance, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. The Danger of Judging People

On seeing him, the father 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 any sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and replied “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital, I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… and now, it would be better for you to calm down so 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??” retorted the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & 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 re-entered the waiting room and announce happily, “Thank goodness!, 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 some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

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

Never judge anyone, because you have no idea of what they might be going through.
