The way we respond – whether from insecurity, fear, doubt, or pride, may be contributing to our sensitivity issue.
Snapping at others unknowingly may cause them to speak rudely to us, injuring our feelings.
It is essential for us to look within…to determine why we are sensitive and why we allow others’ comments to control our emotions.
In Proverbs 15:1, King Solomon said, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
In Proverbs 12:18, he stated, “There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts; but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Give gentle answers and respond softly to others.
Choose words wisely and do not spew out of your mouth the first thing that comes to mind.
An attitude of replying sharply, rudely, and disrespectfully to others now will carry over into a marriage.
The attitude problem should be addressed before going to the altar.
The late Rev. Miles Munroe said, “If you want to know the purpose of a thing, go to the creator ot the thing.”
Go to your “Creator” to get help dealing with a super-sensitivity issue.He is the one that will strengthen us when we’re feeling hurt.
He is the one that can prepare us for our godly mate.
Turn the issue over to Jesus, work to conform to His image, turn emotions over to Him, and live according to God’s standards.
