Sensitivity can be used in very positive and constructive contexts.
- Capable of perceiving with the senses.
- Responsive to external conditions.
- Susceptible to the attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of others.
- Readily altered by the actions of another.
The New Testament reinforces that it is good to be sensitive (Eph 4:17-24). Husbands are to be sensitive in relation to their wives (1 Pet 3:7). We are to be sensitive to those who visit our assemblies (James 2:1-4).
But sensitivity, like all human emotions, can be twisted, perverted and abused by our carnality. There is a fine line between being childlike and childish. This sermon explores that line and encourages mature sensitivity as disciples of Christ.
