Fruit of the Spirit - Gentleness

“Just be gentle…” the catch cry of adults to young children around new babies, puppies, kittens and anything else that might possibly break in their little hands!

Gentleness is a hard lesson for children (and many adults!) to learn, but the Bible gives us a great example of Jesus’ gentleness in Mark 10:13-16. Mark records a time when Jesus welcomed children, gave them His attention, and blessed them. Back then no one thought very highly of children, and what Jesus did would have shocked many who were watching. But Jesus taught that this is what the kingdom of God is all about, coming to God with the faith of a child.

Jesus was the perfect example of being gentle, and we know that God can give you the strength to be gentle, too!

When do you need to be gentle *|FNAME|*?

Have a great week.
