Becoming Sensitive to Other's Needs

Hello Everyone!
There are so many people in this world, and every one of them has a need. Whether they are in need of encouragement, peace, or perhaps they need shelter, the list goes on. One effective way to be a light for Christ is to be sensitive to others. So, how do we do this? Well, there are many ways to be sensitive; a good start is to watch. Look carefully at other’s moods and body language. See if you can tell when there is worry in their face, or that they look in need of help.

Proverbs 27:23:
“Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.”

Next do what you can to help. There are all sorts of incredible opportunities when you help others, and are sensitive to their needs. I find that being sensitive to others also gives many chances to share your faith.

Sometimes, it is REALLY hard to do what is necessary to be sensitive to others instead of yourself. Usually it takes sacrifice to be thoughtful in this way, and though there may be doubts before sacrificing for others, once it’s over, it’s worth it.

When doubt hinders sensitivity take Jesus as an example. I have found His example helpful. He gave everything out of care for us, even when we did nothing to earn it.

John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Another good thing to remember is how to behave depending on who we are being sensitive to. Take this for an example: When someone is sick, and is in need of calm yet loving treatment, cracking a bunch of loud and funny jokes may not help them. Doing that is much the opposite of being sensitive to the needs of others. Though we are starting with good intentions, if then we do things that are only annoying to who we are trying to bless, it is not going to send the right message. When showing sensitivity, do it with grace.

Ephesians 4:29:
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”

When being sensitive to others take everything into mind, and always say a quick prayer that God will give the right words and actions for the situation.
