Are You Clothed in Gentleness Today?

gen·tle (jntl) KEY

gen·tler , gen·tlest

Considerate or kindly in disposition; amiable and tender.
Not harsh or severe; mild and soft
Easily managed or handled; docile

For the Christian, gentleness is not an option; it is a mandate set forth in Scripture. The world is tough, rude, and brash, but we are to be different. Do we take the time to be considerate, or are we impatient and short? Are we easily managed or do others feel the need to "handle us with kid gloves"? Ask the Lord to clothe you in His gentleness today as you deal with others.
