Within the Sound of Church Bells

This video is from one of the hospitals where Samaritan's Purse sends post-residency candidates. And as I watch the heart-wrenching scenes, I can't help but think about the ridiculous ways we spend our time, money and affections in America. $100 on a pair of pants. Dessert every day. Hours on our appearance, on our entertainment, on our self gratification. No matter how we slice it, these do not seem to be the life choices that honor the God who gave Himself for us. But this guy... this thoracic surgeon who chose to live in poverty... he gets it. And I hope someday I do too.
