Have you noticed that the more mature believers have a greater capacity to see hidden blessings in hardships and difficult subjects? Norm Cousins, a teacher at the Univeristy of Calif. Medical School in Los Angeles, noticed an amazing irony in his younger students’ perceptions. It seems that whenever they described courses like physiology, histology or biochemistry they referred to them as hard subjects. However, whenever they talked about ethics, counseling or patient care they called them easy subjects. Twenty years later, these same students have reversed their thinking about these courses, reported Cousins. Now they understand physiology, histology and biochemistry as easy subjects but ethics, patient counseling, and patient care as the most complicated issues they have to face as doctors. The enduring values of dealing with people are often initially seen as unnecessary until we see life from the eyes of God and with the years of experience. The hidden aspects of life are usually the elements that have the greatest eternal value, but require the most discernment.
