Vinegar in a Wound: Proverbs 25

Proverbs 25:1

We really need to be sensitive to how we interact with people who are suffering. Many times, I think we try so hard to be “happy, positive Christians” that we forget that we are really supposed to be suffering with these people. It would just be silly to pretend like nothing is wrong, as if ignoring the circumstance has any influence on anything. If anything, that is an easy way out. It’s much easier to tell someone, “you aren’t sick… you are healed!” than it is to spend time with them, let them pour out their heart to you and provide well-thought out encouragement from God’s Word.

I have to admit, I’ve done a really crummy job at that. But it’s something I plan to fix.
