Dr.Shintani has never wasted the blessings

“I am humbled and honored to become part of this humanitarian Order... I
look forward to being a part of the international work that the Knights of the
Order of St. John have undertaken for nearly a thousand years.”- Dr.Terry

He deserves it. God is good in his life. Dr.Shintani has never wasted the blessings he has got from above by offering what he has to other people. A true servant-leader indeed.

A lot of people today who are powerful, intelligent, and have got everything in this world, yet, they don't have the heart of service. Unlike them, Dr. Terry Shintani, chose to earn and give. He earned knowledge, worked, and then shared his accomplishments with us.

Dr.Terry Shintani has been a great leader in the field of complementary and integrative medicine, He was honored by being knighted by the Sovereign Order of the Orthodox Knights Hospitaller of Saint John of Jerusalem for his accomplishments in medicine and his years of service to humanity. May 24, 2009- the Order conferred upon him the title of “Knight of Honor” in a formal investiture ceremony that took place in New York City. He has also been designated the “Living Treasure of Hawaii” by the Honpa Hongwanji Mission and is best known for developing the “Shintani Diet”, which became popular for its natural effect weight loss and improvement in health.

Indeed, Dr. Shintani stands as an inspiration for everyone. He is a model for responsible stewardship. He is investing his intelligence, skills, strength, and everything to God and people. Nothing is wasted in his life. Let's all do the same.
You my friend has your own strengths. It's impossible to think that God has not given you anything to grow and bear fruit. Today, you are challenged to use them for God's glory. Dr. Shintani should have been using what he has for his selfish ambitions but he chose to be "selfless" like what God did. You too has the opportunity to serve. Like God, He came to earth to serve and not to be served.
