Disability is everyone’s business. Following her feature on disability and faith, Sue Hutchinson shares five of the most insensitive comments someone could make to a person with disability.
Never say “It’s God’s will” or “It’s all part of God’s plan”.
Never imply that disability is punishment for sin.
Never relate the disability to faith, such as “a test of faith”, or due to a lack of faith or insincere prayer.
Never say that you will pray for healing, unless specifically asked to.
Never say that God made the person special by giving them the disability.
