The Sense of Touch

There is no touch as special as Jesus’ touch. He must have been a touchy feely person. He touched lepers when it was a dangerous thing to do; He touched the sick and His touch raised to dead to life. He touched the little children and sat them on His lap. ‘Jesus’ hands were kind hands, doing good to all.’ We can’t necessarily do the miracles that Jesus did with His touch but we can use our sense of touch. ‘

How comforting it is to hold the hand of a sad and tearful person. Children respond to touch and a cuddled child grows up more secure. To hold the hand of a dying person is a great privilege and must be so important to those who are dying.
