A doctor quickly entered the hospital after being called in for an urgent surgery. He changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He saw the boy’s father walking back and forth in the hall waiting for the doctor.
Once seeing the doctor, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could… now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do?” said the father angrily.
The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what is said in the Holy Bible ‘From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God.’ Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace.”
“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank God! Your son is saved!”
And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse.”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state?” commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery.”

When i read this story, I realized that we should respect each other either you are poor or rich., No one is excemted in this world ,so we came from from dust then we return from dust. So be thankful of what you now.

Very inspirational story really..

I think the story was pretty good I was confused at first but then Bianca explained it to me so I got it
Doctors are very close to god its true, an ordinary person cant even imaging what doctors feel in their soul
BECOMING CALM,what a great word!
This story is touching and helpful to everybody who know what is good to do in life. I have learned from this wonderful story 2 important things:
1. Helping others is our primary goal in life (specially being a doctor)
2. “Fear to God is the beginning to wisdom”. If we believe in God and know about him, then we will be calm in life.
I am happy now because I have realized how bad I was in respecting other people in their service areas, my heart is still challenged by the doctor’s reaction.
Awesome….Really heart touching
I’m dentist student…. this story gives me a big lesson and is very touching.

A good story. I love it.
I’m really moved by the Doctor’s edifying attitude! It’s really hard to judge others when we think only of our own struggles because we don’t know what are struggles of the other person.
Touching story… God’s grace is everywhere..
We are sent on Earth to perform our duty.. We should not move back from our duties in any situation..!!! 🙂
There is a lot to learn from this story.
Very touching story, I really learned something through this.
This is a really inspiring story. I am thankful to all the Doctors who do their work with this attitude.
“Stay calm and take perfect decision in all situation” is the main core of the story.
We need to stay calm in any situation and thank God for any circumstances.
There are still some doctors in this world even today, not all doctors are money minded.
Touching Story!!!!!! We can all relate to it in some way.
Touching. When you are doing Gods work there is no time for grief.
I think that’s a very good lesson for me..
I will surely keep this thing in my life..
