Be Sensitive to Your Witness

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. (Philippians 4:5)

When things are going great in your life, you are making lots of money, you are healthy, your relationships are strong, your marriage is solid, your kids respect and honor you, and your parents are blessing you; that is when everyone expects you to be happy. However, when you are going through a difficult season in your life, that is when the spotlight is on you. People are wondering, “How will you handle this?”

Paul writes, “Let your gentleness be evident to all.” In other words, you need to be thinking about your impact on your family, your friends, and anyone who comes in contact with you. When you are going through a difficult time, that’s when the “real you” will be seen.

Think about it this way. If you have a tube of toothpaste and you squeeze it, what will come out of the tube? Toothpaste! When you get squeezed through circumstances, whatever comes out of your life and your mouth, reveals what is inside.

Therefore, it is important for us to realize that sometimes our greatest witness to other people comes not when God is blessing

us, but when we are trying to find the hand of God in the middle of our pain. That's why Paul is saying, “I want you to be sensitive to your witness.” It will make all the difference in the world!

I need to think more like Jesus. To be more loving and compassionate towards others. To pray for them more often. To tell others about Jesus

God is great! We are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God‘s mercy and goodness shines through all the darkness. Let’s all pray for one another in love, one another because he loved us first I’m so thankful that Jesus died on the cross for me for sinner like me That he died was buried in rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures as it states in first Corinthians chapter 15 verse four, but we are saved through the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, save by grace through faith. Amen!
