A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Galatians 5: 23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love,joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
1 Timothy 6: 11
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
So gentleness is a good thing! That’s obvious from the above verses but what is gentleness? When I think of that word, I think of sweet, soft-spoken grandmotherly and grandfatherly types. NOT ME!!
Do you consider yourself gentle? Is it an attitude or actions? Is there a time for gentleness or should we be that way all the time? What are some ways we can cultivate more gentleness in to our personality? WHAT’S YOUR THOUGHTS TODAY?
