“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” – Proverbs 15:1 (NIV)
God talks about gentleness when He refers to the fruit of the spirit. It’s an important character quality to him, as you can see in several of the verses included on the blog today. Just hearing the word gentle soothes my soul and calms me down. Ahh, to experience a gentle word, a gentle touch, or a gentle response; these are truly gifts of God working in the lives people who are surrendered to Him!
“Let your gentleness be evident to all.” – Phillipians 4:5 (NIV)
