The Fruit of the Spirit is Gentleness -Day 21

"Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation; and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great." Psalm 18:35

Gentleness does not come naturally to me, and sometimes when I am barking out orders like a drill sergeant, I forget that I am dealing with children, and not soldiers. 

From the archives, they grow up so fast!

However, gentleness is so effective at creating an atmosphere of calm in your home. When we use a soft voice and kind words, we convey a sense of security to our children. Rushing around, yelling and treating our children like day laborers has an opposite effect. 

Children are such a gift, treat them kindly!

Gentleness is a gift of the Holy Spirit. God wants to give you the ability to speak softly, touch kindly and show mercy to your children and to the world around you.
