In Ottawa, at a seminar that we attended, one of the presenters shared information and asked the doctors one question: “What is the probability that your patients will receive unbiased, honest and principled information away from your office?” The answer was “less than 1%, most people will be close to 0%”
He made the point that if we will not share the truth with you, then the probability is that some people will never know the truth about HEALTH!
That’s why everyone had, at least once, a thought to quit their proper chiropractic care. Including me (Dr. Dmitri).
Innately we are all disobedient children and to stay on the right pathway is often hard. In fact, we are the ones who are responsible for all our troubles.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)
Do you think the strongest people on earth never thought about quitting?
Here is the one great example:
“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22:42. Jesus said these things in the morning prayer just before being betrayed, arrested and crucified.
Even for Jesus Christ himself, staying on the right pathway was tremendously hard.
Here is how it works:
One evening, a Grandfather told his grandson about a debate that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Grandpa simply replied, “The one you feed”
What are feeding yourself?
What are you listening to?
What are you watching?
Who are hanging out with?
What are you choosing to believe in?
Who is your Sheppard?
Since we tried the fruit from the tree of good and evil, we know the difference now. And if you are confused or frustrated? Please ask questions, just do not quit!
You are too valuable! God loves you and so do we.
Great example about the 2 wolves. Be careful which one we choose to feed. God bless.
Hi, thanks Doctor for the message of encouragement. I evaluate the message and the questions. I not quitting the Lord, I never will because He has sealed me for eternity but right now I have been going through a crisis that is slowing me down in my thinking and emotions to make decisions. I don’t have the strength and even courage to quit what I don’t know is in my way. I appreciated you and the staff a lot and I will not leave you completely because I know where are the right paths to go. Thanks again and blessings.
Thank you for raising this important question and for clear explanations! I always enjoy reading your information, it is useful and important.
