When you behave as a gentle person, people often perceive you as weak. But when you feel the love of God, gentleness is a natural outcome.
Gentleness is part of God's Will: it makes sense that God would have all of us to be kind and gentle to one another, to anything and everything.
The strength of gentleness comes from being in the grace of God at all times. It's not always easy; we don't always behave that way. It's difficult to do because most of us get angry at someone or something from time to time. I like the old adage of counting to 10 to get myself together again. Or to sit and say a prayer and meditate for a few minutes.
God would have us be wholly gentle. As gentleness gradually grows inside of our hearts and minds, He would have us be unfailing, all encompassing and limitless in strength of that gentleness.
Here's a good one to keep in mind: joy is the inevitable result of gentleness. Gentleness means that fear is now impossible, and what could come to interfere with joy?
When I was a little boy, I remember the pictures that depicted how gentle He was to all. Jesus seemed to me to be gentle to everyone and everything. It sticks in my mind.
May we pray?
Dear Heavenly Father and Earthly Mother,
Today, we ask for the gentleness that You would have us be at all times. May the Holy Spirit take all our angry thoughts that occasionally keep us from gentleness and put it where he knows it belongs. Help us not to be concerned of what others think of us. Give us the strength to be gentle. Amen
One of my favorite verses. Galatians 5:2-23: 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
I offer everyone gentleness. Have a gentle and beautiful day.
Love, blessings and gentleness to you and your loved ones,
Father Red Hand
