Are We Really Caring?

In Soulguide, Bruce Demarest tells of Dateline NBC’s
report on Boston oncologist Dr. Jerome Groopman.
Dateline followed the doctor for two years as he
attempted to save the lives of Gene, who suffered from
AIDS, and Elizabeth, who suffered from breast cancer.
As the patients were treated, Dr. Groopman grew in
intimacy with them. After watching them eventually lose
their lives to their diseases, he concluded: "If you
care for someone without addressing his or her soul,
you’re not really caring for them."
Is the same not true for the Christian who walks among
the spiritually dead of this world? If we meet material
and emotional needs, but never address the spiritual
need, then we’re not really caring for them.
