Prophetic Boldness and Prophetic Sensitivity

A prophet needs enormous boldness to speak God's truth to hostile and powerful people.

A prophet also needs enormous sensitivity, to hear Gods heart and demonstrate his love.

There are plenty of bold people who wade in boots and all,
and plenty of sensitive people who would not say boo to a mouse,
but only a rare few can combine the boldness and the sensitivity
needed to be a prophet to the nation.
Jeremiah was one who did.
