Many Relationships are becoming stale and colder.
They are losing their spice and taste.
This lose in flavor is not restrcited to romantic relationships.
It seems to be sweeping cross:
- Sibling relations
- Parental relations
- Work relations
So what is that one ingredient many of out relationships are lacking?
Many of us can’t detect that some of the, “I’m fine” responses to our questions of,
“How are you doing” are fakes masking the true feelings of people.
Many people are covering:
So how does sensitivity help?
When we are sensitive to others:
- We are in a better position to offer them the right kind of help to solve their challenges.
We help them shed off their masks so that they can live more authentic and honest lives.
We help people dig into their vulnerable sides. Embracing our vulnerable sides helps us to become more compassionate and empathetic.
It helps us avoid causing pain to others.
It helps us offer healing to others who maybe in pain and they can’t speak out.
I know being sensitive is not something everyone is naturally endowed with.
But I do believe that if we ask the Holy Spirit, he can give us a spirit of discernment.
A spirit of discernment is what helps our sensitivity antennas sharp enough to detect the difference between an authentic, “I’m fine” and a fake, “I’m fine”.
If you don’t have a spirit of discernment and sensitivity yet, I think this a great time to ask the Holy Spirit to provide you with one.
9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,
10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,
11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
