Practicing What We Preach
There lived once a husband and wife both of whom were doctors. He was a doctor of theology and she was a doctor of medicine.
They had just moved to a new house and hired a young and
witty new housekeeper who doubled as a cook.
One morning the doorbell rang and the housekeeper promptly answered the door.
The visitor asked for “the doctor”.
Without missing a beat the housekeeper asked:
“Do you want the one who preaches or the one who practices?”
मैंने एक चिड़िया पाली, एक दिन वो उड़ गई
फिर मैंने एक गिलहरी पाली, एक दिन वो भी चली गई
फिर मैंने एक दिन एक पेड़ लगाया, दोनों वापिस आ गई
I bought a bird, one day it ran away
I bought a squirrel, he also went away
Then I planted a tree, both of them came back.
A man reached 80 years of age and he had an infection in his ears which made him almost deaf. The doctors informed him that an operation was necessary to cure this disease. He agreed to have the operation done as he couldn’t hear anything apart from the severe pain in the ears.
When the operation was completed successfully, his doctor gave him the bill which covered all the costs.
The old man looked at the bill and started to cry. Upon seeing this doctor felt pity on the old man and told him that if the cost was too high then they could make some other arrangements.
The old man said “I am not crying because of the money but I am crying because God let me hear for 80 years and He never sent me a bill.”
Moral: There are so many blessing of God which we don’t realize its importance, until its snatched away from us.
A worried woman went to her Doctor and said :
‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help!
My baby is not even one year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’
So the doctor said: ‘OK, and what do you want me to do?’
She said: ‘I want you to perform an abortion, and I’m counting on your help with this.’
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady:
‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’
She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.
The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!
‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!
