Day 296

GENTLENESS

By the meekness and gentleness of Christ,

I appeal to you.

2 Corinthians 10:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, is My gentleness such a difficult character trait to mirror? Perhaps it is because you confuse it with weakness. I only reflect My Father's personality. If the awesome God of the universe, who has all power and all might, could still care about the fall of one sparrow or hug a child to His heart with the tender love of a mother, can you not believe gentleness is a virtue? Let Me fill you with My gentleness. It's impossible on your own.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
The gentleness of Jesus is not just for babes, but for every one of God's children. Lord, You treat each one of us as a fragile flower, a delicate blossom to be handled with care. Thank You for Your gentle and personal attention.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Jesus is God's personal hug to us.
