A weekend meditation and thoughts to ponder. One thing gentleness is NOT is a show of weakness. Gentleness in the face of fury stands out like an invisible WALL of both power and Strength. Man, woman or child….the free-will choice to be GENTLE can become a life-gift of environment-changing impact.
Choose today – the fruit of gentleness.
I found the quote below quite by accident. It is expressed better than I could.
I choose GENTLENESS. Nothing is won by force. I choose to be GENTLE.
If I raise my voice may it only be in praise.
If I clench my fist may it only be in prayer.
If I make a demand may it be only of my self.
Who in recorded history chose to walk this way? The Main example is Jesus Christ – known as gentle Jesus – He nevertheless still expressed in a physical way his upset about the wrong usage of the House of God. He attacked the tables – not the people.
Ghandi, Martin Luther King,. Many, many others in our recent history. They all chose GENTLENESS.
Today and indeed this weekend my challenge for us is.
CHOOSE GENTLENESS, (partner it with self-control)
Have a wonderful weekend! Live Life to its fullest!.
