I was binge-watching ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ earlier this week and shortly after I started watching, I found myself screaming at the TV when I discovered doctors had to save the life of a young boy, who was very unworthy in my eyes.
In the episode, a 15-year-old boy who killed two police officers during a robbery was in dire need of a liver transplant and one of the officers turned out to be a match.
My blood was boiling (I take my TV shows very seriously) and I almost fell when a doctor asked the deceased’s mother to donate her son’s organs to the killer.
I could not fathom how someone could work up the nerve to do something like this. After saying no, the mother later changed her mind and obliged, as she knew her son would want her to donate his liver to the teenager.
Viewers later learned that the deceased tried to help the troubled teen as best as he could and believed that there was still hope for the lost boy.
The scene brought tears to my eyes. Sure, it’s all scripted, however, stories like this can teach us how to deal with real life situations.
At times, we will encounter hard situations—situations that may challenge our faith and beliefs.
I could not possibly imagine being in the aforementioned situation but I do know I would scream out the name of Jesus and ask for His guidance, had I been in the mother’s position.
What would you do if you were in her shoes?
I’ll leave you with this: whatever you do in life, seek the face of God, because it is only He who can give you the strength to endure, grant you inner peace and so much more.
Take care guys.
