You are the people of God; He loved you and chose you for His own. So then you must put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. ~Colossians 3:12
The dictionary says that gentleness is being considerate or kindly in disposition; amiable and tender. It also says that gentleness means of good family; wellborn. No matter what kind of human family you have come from you can claim the gift of the ultimate and greatest family. When you enter into God's family, through His Son Jesus, wellborn and good breeding is instilled in you. After all, God becomes your Father!
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Have you heard of a song by the Robbie Seay Band called Song of Hope? In the course they sing to God saying "Just to know You are near is enough"
Rejoice for God is near!
