What is it with egyptian parents and forcing their kids to become doctors?
They say its because they want their kids to have a great income, but life isn't supposed to be about money. Just because someone is rich doesn't mean they'll be happy. There isn't an entrance fee into heaven.
Infact, Jesus Christ our Savior said that "Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Mathew 19:24.
I don't get how Egyptian parents go to church and say "do not love the world nor the things of the world for all shall pass away" yet all they care about is money which = happiness according to their actions. All they really want is bragging rights, right? They just want to be able to say "Oh my kid is a doctor".
so somehow Money = happiness
yet God = happiness
so money = God? >|?
Maybe there's a parent out there who can explain this theory over here? Why do all the kids HAVE TO be doctors? why can't we be something we actually enjoy? Perhaps something that requires college (gasp) or maybe something, dare i say it, not in science or engineering? Why is it that if a person is not a doctor, their parents are ashamed or uneasy?
