Bible Topics: Sensitivity

Definition: In this context, sensitivity means the tendency to be quick to take offense or be offended; touchiness; hurt feelings. (Sensitivity also has a good meaning, that of being sensitive, or attuned to, the needs and feelings of others.)

1. Sensitivity is a symptom of pride; we're hurt and our ego is deflated when others point out our mistakes.

2. Sensitivity shows we're not really holding onto the Lord and His Word.

3. Sensitivity takes things personally, and ends up believing the Devil's lies and becoming discouraged.

4. People who are easily offended are not very strong and pretty unspiritual.

5. Sensitivity makes it difficult to receive counsel, thus hindering training and spiritual growth.

6. Sensitivity hinders honest, open communications, undermining our relations with others.

7. Persistent sensitivity results in losing our usefulness.

8. As good soldiers in the Lord's army, we need to learn how to "take it."

9. The Lord can help us overcome sensitivity if we are determined to change.

10. We all need to safeguard one another and "be our brother's keeper."

11. The more we fight sensitivity, the less sensitive we will become.

12. Pray for the right kind of sensitivity: sensitivity to the Lord's Spirit and the needs of others.
