Summary: In a hospital Emergency Room, people having various, frivolous needs are greeted by the front desk nurse and a doctor with whom she consults. Each one is treated as if it’s a very serious condition. In the midst of these, a man is having what appears to be a heart attack. He’s sent to a door that actually exits the ER. He reappears 2 times, each time looking worse, until he finally doesn’t reappear. The nurse and doctor wonder at the end where he is. Point: Too often we direct our attention away from those who really need the Lord and instead take on the “easy cases” of people who really don’t need much attention.
