Jack’s Winning Words 6/28/17
“The only moral lesson which is suited for a child—the most important lesson for every time of life—is this: Never hurt anybody.” (Rousseau) One of the pledges that doctors make is, “Primum non nocere,” meaning: “First, do no harm.” Jesus taught something similar when he said, “”Love your neighbor,” meaning: “Do everything you can for a person in need.” Basic human morality is to treat others as you would like to be treated. Do no harm! ;-) Jack
FROM ST PAUL IN ST PAUL: good words for sure. would that the whole world would now heed them!====JACK: If the physician's pledge is "do no harm," what should the pastor's motto be? ====SP: do some good!??? or just do something:):):)====JACK: Sometimes pastors are referred to as...do-gooders. That ain't so bad!====SP: better than do-baders!====JACK: As with any organization, there are "baders", if you want to look for them. I'd rather concentrate on the good ones and try to follow their example.====SP: i once heard this illustration about the church. there are the shirkers, the jerkers, and the workers. the shirkers shirk their responsibilities, the jerkers jerk the rug out from under those who are working, and the workers get the job done!
