Make Your List and Check it Twice

Tomorrow Karen and I are off to visit Jack Donovan Sweeten, the 2 1/2 year old musical genius who lives in Steelers' Country. Oh well, we can't have everything.

While we are on vacation, design a program to deliver health care to those who need it. In the last blog I asked several questions. I have not received any Comments yet and I am disappointed.

Maybe the questions were dumb, uninteresting or off the point. But, there they are and I am stuck with them.

Take a swing at the questions and imagine you have been given a grant of $1,000,000.00 to spend on building a Christian health and healing ministry. Take a leap of faith and make up a plan to spend the dough that Bill Gates gave you to deliver health care more effectively. The whole world is in desperate need for a better system of health care.

Jesus, The Great Physician, seemed to know a lot about healing and He cared a lot for sick people. Does it make sense that he would ignore those people in the 21st Century? Why do so many Christians boycott health and healing today? Seasoned Believers have the knowledge, wisdom, experience and time to make real changes in the lives of millions of people.

Allow me to offer a hint. Almost every chronic disease today results from a badly chosen "life style". What Seasoned Believers have to offer are our spiritual, emotional and relational resources.

Second, many problems could be treated easier, cheaper, quicker and better if there as a system that brought all the resources together in one web page.

Third, the greatest needs are spiritual in nature not physical.

Fourth, lay people are critically important to enhancing good health.

Have fun!!
