NO GLORY WITHOUT SACRIFICE

“For the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.” – Luke 8:15

As medical students, we all went through the stage of having so many things to do in so little time. But time flew by so fast that before we knew it, we were done with medical school. In hindsight, it’s a good thing we didn’t give in to being disheartened or distraught. All those struggles, after all, were just part of being a medical student.
My elementary school teacher was right when she said, “We always start from A-B-C, 1-2-3, or do, re, mi. There’s no glory without sacrifice.”
This applies to every stage of one’s life.
Look back at your life and recall the severe trials you went through. Didn’t they help you become what you are now? God has a mission for our lives when He allowed us to become what we are today. He uses all our experiences, even our negative ones, to shape us into better persons. It may take time before we see the good emerge from it all, but as we persevere, we will soon enjoy the good fruit of our efforts.Dr. Henry Yu (henrio_md@yahoo.com)

Lord, help us in our struggles. Show us hope when we are down. Grant us perseverance.
