Let your gentleness be evident to all; the Lord is near.
~ Philippians 4:5
Gentleness, kindness, compassion, charity… how important are these virtues and how often does the Bible encourage us to live them in truth!
When was the last time I treated a co-worker gently? When was the last time I was gentle to a fellow customer at the grocery store? What would someone see in me that would show gentleness?
When I imagine ideal gentleness, I think of a mother. How a mother treats her baby, that’s gentleness. So how can transfer that to how I treat those around me on a daily basis? How may I be gentle to my boss, to my barista?
I don’t exactly know the answer to these questions. Maybe today we can focus on gentleness and see how different our actions are accordingly.
God be with you.
