Sensitivity to Others

by Rev. Fr. V.V. Paulose, Toronto, Canada

Today's Bible Verse


"Why then do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts?" ( 1 Samuel 6:6)

Discussion

Do you feel an aversion and an insensitivity to the pains and sufferings of others?

The end of the Natural creation takes place when human beings become insensitive to the feelings, needs, and sufferings of the living beings. We are in the hi- end livings of artificial creation, that is Hi- tech and hi- breed. A world of unnatural! The design and the rules of divine creation are making upside down by the actions and inactions of the present world. So we are becoming the victims of the fury and retaliation of the nature through a plethora of natural calamities, pestilence. and unnatural behaviors of human beings, animals, and birds. "You should know that, Timothy, that last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. .They will be cruel and hate what is good."(2 Timothy 3: 1-3) A born again life is the only solution for to escape from this dangerous situation of self destruction. Go back to the nature and go back to the spirit of God. Eschew of all types of artificiality.

An elderly woman in Toronto Canada who died in the freezing cold on Monday 17 January 2011 called out for help in vain. Some residents heard or even saw the 66- year old woman in distress bur didn't help. People have heard her calls for help and didn't call police- 911. Some people thought of she was a homeless woman so she hadn't' deserve any attention so they didn't give any attention. She was found laying on the ground behind a car without a jacket, her jacket and glasses were found nearby.

Pains and sufferings of all are equal, irrespective of color, creed, age, finance, and the faith. Be in action where ever there are cry for help. Be sensitive in all situations as Jesus have.

Prayer

Jesus, we pray for a sensitive heart to all. Let the cry of the poor and sick be reached in thy ears and be answered. We read your promise, " I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit with in you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a tender, responsive heart ."( Ezekiel 36:26)
