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.

MadI see a lot of error in this teaching
Many prophetic beautiful Christians are ‘sensitive’ to both physical ,emotional & spirirtual stimuli
They get misunderstood as being in sin/behaving badly when they are more likely to have been overwhelmed or even traumatised by something
This type of hypersensitivity needs loving cate not ‘correction’ & for that reason this article I found very concerning & increases risk of person being misjudged & traumatised

Lucy, I agree with your comment.
I don't understand why you and Lucy would see a lot of error in this article. Do you see error in the Word of God? This is a Bible class! It's meant to HELP people who have a tendency to be quick to take offense or be offended when corrected. The Bible has LOADS of admonition in the Book of Proverbs that we are SUPPOSED to listen to correction from others and not take offense. I don't think either of you have been corrected as much as I have for my faults and mistakes. I learned from them. And I especially learned that I am my own worse enemy and must take responsibility for my actions and not blame anybody but myself for anything I do wrong.

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. - Psalms 119:165

This is a BIG problem when trying to help people overcome habitual sin. Instead of looking at it as something they are responsible for (as they are doing the sin) they take it all personally and lash out. Yes God empowers us and yes He set us free. If one is free, why do they remain in bondage to sin? Pride and the inability to realize they have not come to a godly sorrow, but the sorrow of the world. Great article!
