Gentleness as a Fruit of the Spirit is an
outward action but it comes from a person’s inner attitude
– being humble. Some might think that being gentle is a sign
of weakness, but the truth is, it is “God’s power used
in love.” When we are motivated by God’s love, then
surely we can give a gentle answer in any situation and it brings
the peace of God to whoever gets to hear it.
“A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.” – Proverbs
Bible Story: (1 Samuel 25)
David and his friends were in the Desert. While they were there,
they were kind to the shepherds who were with them in the fields.
Those shepherds were servants of a rich but foolish man named Nabal,
his wife was named Abigail.
When it was time to shear the sheep, David sent some of his men
to Nabal to ask him for a gift which he would be kind enough to
give, considering that David and his men helped protect his sheep
in the fields. Instead of giving a gift, Nabal insulted David, and
this made David so mad that he planned to kill Nabal in revenge.
When Abigail heard about this, she acted quickly and wisely. She
gathered food and other supplies and went to David to make peace
With kind and gentle words coming from a humble heart, Abigail helped
David to see it would be wrong for him to kill Nabal. She asked
for forgiveness in behalf of her husband and through her careful
gentle words, David’s heart was changed. Read 1 Samuel 25:
When a meek or humble person decides to speak
to an angry or highly emotional person, his initial goal would not
be to prove who is right or wrong, but simply to show respect and
kindness, even if the other person is using very hurtful words.
This kind of gentleness is something that comes from the Holy Spirit,
and to attempt to do it using only our own human abilities would
be futile. It takes time and prayer and allowing the Spirit to mould
us in order to bear His fruits.
Even in correcting others, the Bible tells
us to do it gently – because God calls us to be humble and
recognize that none of us are perfect.
Therefore, we leave it up to God to judge;
our role is to encourage one another and to be gentle and kind and
most of all, to pray that God will touch people’s hearts and
bring them to repentance and belief in Jesus Christ so that they
might be saved.
Gently pick up dolly and start to rock her in our arms. Do any of
you have a baby brother or sister? (Allow time for them to respond.)
How do we handle babies? (Allow time for response. Continue
to rock dolly) Babies are fragile. We have to be careful with
them. We are never rough with babies because it will hurt them.
We treat them with gentleness. God desires for us to be gentle in
our actions, our words, and our attitudes!
gentleness to us by calling all of those who are tired and
suffering to find rest in Himself. He gently leads us, like
a Shepherd with His sheep.
