A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
A Cheerful Heart is indeed good medicine. Happiness is not only contagious but a blessing to have. This is one contagion you hope to get infected with!
Jesus spent much of his ministry healing others. He helped all walks of life with an equal amount of love and compassion. It didn’t matter who they were, what their beliefs where or where they came from.
I became a paramedic with that same passion in my heart. I likewise run my business on Jesus’s example. We treat everyone with an equal amount of love an compassion regardless of who they are, producer or PA, regardless of beliefs or lifestyle.
The same goes for the medics we hire. We hire all medic with a great attitude, happy heart and professional demeanor. As a company we set the example by treating our medics well. When we treat our medics well, they will treat our clients well.
Often Christians are often misunderstood in this. The “Christian Fish” scares people. I wish that wasn’t so. As Christians, we strive to set the example Christ gave (albeit less than perfect). I hope our example will show Christians and Christ in a better light or encourage those Christians reading this now.
Also, there are EMS professionals out there right now who are suffering. Some have PTSD, some know it (as I do), some don’t know it. Too many EMS professionals commit suicide every year. Jesus loves you. We do too. There is help. We have put up a special page for you: MEDICS IN CRISIS It has resources and 24/7 phone lines to help our brothers and sisters in dire straits.
Jesus is a servant, I am a servant, we are all servants; meaning that regardless of our role in life we all serve someone; Family, a client, a production, God. When being a servant is embraced as a blessing you give to others, A Cheerful Heart soon follows.
