August: Our month of FRUITFULNESS. (Double Portion)
TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT!
Closely linked to humility, gentleness is grace of the soul. It is not weakness, but instead it is strength under control. For instance, in Paul’s second letter to Timothy, he wrote that the “Lord’s servant” will “correct his opponents with gentleness” 2 Timothy 2:25. And in Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia, he wrote that those who have been caught in sin should be restored in a “spirit of gentleness” Galatians 6:1. Gentleness, being the opposite of self-assertiveness and self-interest, is also a key ingredient in unity and peace within the body of Christ Ephesians 4:2.
Apostle James summed it up in his epistle; “God resist the proud and gives grace to the humble” James 4:6.
Prayer I receive favor to be MEEK in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
