It is OKAY to care A LOT

It is OKAY to care A LOT 

As a healthcare professional, I admit, I become very attached to my patients. No matter their past, present, race, or belief system, they are deeply loved by me. I become their advocate, and they become my family. 

I am probably not the most popular person on my job because I will always make sure the voices of my patients are heard. I often become frustrated with myself for caring so deeply. I went through a phase of “wishing I didn’t care so much”. 

Recently, I’ve been reflecting on what God says about caring for others: 
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2 ESV

We are supposed to walk out life’s ups and downs TOGETHER, as a community. We are the body of Christ collectively, not individually. By bearing one another’s burdens, we provide a true reflection of our Savior, who carried each of our burdens to The Cross. 

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is in Christ Jesus, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of me.” 
Philippians 2: 4-7 ESV


This verse. WE WERE CALLED TO CARE A LOT! Jesus cared so deeply for us that he “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:8 ESV). 

I say to myself and each of you, keep fighting for others! 

It is absolutely OKAY to care, love, and value others for it is a reflection of Christ’s humility and love.
