Sick Beta

"If you start to think about your physical or moral condition, you usually find that you are sick." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Everyone is sick somehow, but nobody is willing to face and accept this inconvenient truth.

They will only see doc when they feel uncomfortable, but they never have the intention to cure themselves when they make others uncomfortable. Instead, they suggest the victims see the doc to reduce and control the pain. They ignore the fact that they are the root cause of problem, but insist that they are always right, and the others are always wrong. They never realize that the best way to help others recover from the illness is to stop making others uncomfortable. It's actually they who need to see the doc, but not the poor innocent victims.

However, people seldom realize that they are sick. Even if they are really sick, they don't and won't admit it. They consider themselves perfect, and others imperfect. There is simply not one single chance that they are imperfect, and others perfect. This is sickness. After all, how could it be possible? How can they draw any reliable conclusions without examining and diagnosing everything subjectively? They simply hypnotize themselves and believe whatever they think is absolutely right. What makes things worse is that they also try to hypnotize others to believe in them.

This is going to be a never ending torture, until people accept that they are sick. To err is human. What’s wrong with being sick? It is not a crime. It is nothing wrong indeed.

For those who are consciously or unconsciously sick, get well soon.

Father of goodness and love, hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen.
