Time to Grow: Gentleness When You're Mistreated
Southeast Christian Church
Published on 05/30/2010
We usually think of gentleness as weakness. We want to be strong our recipe for achieving success not weak or gentle. And yet Galatians 5 says, "The fruit of the Spirit is gentleness." The lesson is this: our aggression can lash out, hurting others and grieving the Holy Spirit. Gentleness, however, is turning the reigns of your anger and aggravation over to the Holy Spirit. If you are walking with the Spirit then gentleness should be evident in your life.
