Walk with Gentleness
Ephesians 4:2b

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love” Ephesians 4:2 ESV

Gentleness is the second character trait in Paul’s list describing what it means to walk in a manner worthy of the calling in Christ. This quality is typified by kindness and softness of spirit as opposed to a rude, harsh, abrasive, and bullying attitude. A gentle person demonstrates a quiet compassion and consideration for others. Gentleness is also meekness, which is power and strength under control, like a wild horse that has been broken and tamed to follow the commands and directions of a rider.

Lord Jesus, as I follow and obey Your commands and directions, fill my life with kindness and compassion. Let a gentle attitude be evidence of my daily walk with You.
