Sensitive


Romans 12:15 says “rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

I want to talk to you about the word “Sensitive” people can be sensitive to light, or have a sensitive skin. But the sensitive I want to talk about is this scripture verse in Romans 12:15

If we can be happy for ourselves why aren’t we displaying this same happiness and joy for someone else? When a person has lost a love one we find it hard to offer comfort, when they are rejoicing we still find it hard, why is that? Could it be that we are not sensitive towards others unless it is us?

The scripture is telling us that we must be sensitive towards others and it does not mean within our own circle of friends. Some people will say that they find it hard to reach out to a complete stranger, I must say I disagree with that because scripture tells us we must it’s not up for debt. As a human being how can anyone look at someone and see them hurting and not be moved to reach out to them.

Have our hearts become so callous and hard that we only care about our own? The world is cold and it serves its own self, but aren’t we as children of God are to be different then the world? Many people are hurting and we see them everyday on our jobs, the market place, and yet we will turn our heads and pretend we did not see it; hoping that someone else will help them.

Let us remain to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit..AMEN

  1. Isn’t it amazing when we are open and willing the Spirit surprises us. Being sensitive to the movements of the spirit has helped me discern and serve better. Just yesterday i had decided to quit a committee I had been serving on yet once at the meeting, the spirit just opened up and I knew my calling there was not done yet and I was to stay on longer. Sensitive is a great word!

  2. To be honest, being insensitive to others actually stems out from a root of pride. It is being self-centered. It is all about the person. Being insensitive to the Holy Spirit has the same root. It is self-sufficiency.

    32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. – Acts 4:32 (KJV)
