- fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)
- like everything he made, in his eyes: VERY GOOD (Gen. 1:31)
- he takes delight in you, and rejoices over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17)
- redeemed by His precious blood (Ephesians 1:7)
You belong to Him.
You are an ambassador of the Kingdom.
You are a beloved servant of the King.
You are an incredible source of hope and encouragement to the people you sacrificially serve.
Among other things, you are also worth it to "put your mask on first" (and all the other gear as far as available), before you attend to those you serve.
As people focused and trained to put the patient first, it is good to consider and remember, who we are, and what this may mean during this pandemic.
In practical terms, it could be helpful to play through potential Covid patient related work scenarios either by ourselves, or best together with colleagues. One example is, what we would do, e.g. when a patient has slipped through the triage line and we wonder, whether he/she has the disease, but we do not have the level of PPE needed, etc.
