In today’s world, gentleness is a missing ingredient. For conflicted families and anyone trying to work with or through a system, there doesn’t seem to be anything other than harsh people and hard realities. A smile could make a huge difference in someone’s day, but when I look around, I see a lot of angry or exhausted looks on people’s faces, and even I have to admit that there are days when I cannot hear one more story of someone hating their ex so much that they will harm their child in the process. Hate your ex if you think it will help (believe me when I tell you that it won’t), but I beg of you, always love your child more than you hate your ex. Too much drama can harden even hearts like mine because I am human, after all.
The following video, “God’s Glasses”, needs more views because it is a good reminder that we do not know what someone else may be going through. Let’s see if we can get it over a million views! And…always remember to utilize gentleness with the people you meet and always, always be kind.
The fruit of the spirit is:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”(Galatians 5:22-23)
