Sensitivity is exercising my senses so that I can perceive the true spirit and emotions of those around me. (Bill Gothard, speaker and writer)

When we think of a sensitive person, we sometimes picture someone who is easily hurt personally by the comments or actions of others. That’s not what Gothard is speaking of. He’s counseling us, not to think of ourselves, but to try to sense the other person’s “true spirit and emotions.” The question is how can we respond in ways that will uplift and encourage them.

We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive. (Romans 15:1)

Encourage each other and build each other up. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
