A young man I am mentoring had a wonderful week. He graduated from college this past June and, like many of his peers, was taking a few gap years to work and enhance his application to medical school.
The week began with news that a research paper, on which he is a co-author, was accepted for publication in a major peer-reviewed medical journal. It is an important addition to his already impressive resume. A few days later, he was invited to an interview at medical start up company that has developed a proprietary platform to empower patients to enroll into clinical trials. At the end of the interview, he was offered a position as a clinical investigator. This job will place him in direct contact with many physicians and key players in the medical industry encompassing business, law, and finance. This networking will be an invaluable resource to learn about medicine in a way few medical school applicants will ever see.
It was a good week!
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 (ESV)
I rejoiced with my mentee. He is a fellow brother in Jesus Christ. It was not his happiness that I celebrated, it was the happiness of a family member. We are forever joined together through our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. His joy is our joy.
When it is a good week for a child of God, it is a good week for the family of God, the Church!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
