~ THE 9 FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT ~

GALATIANS 5:22-23
The 8th Fruit:
Gentleness - We need to look at the example of Jesus with this next fruit.

Since Jesus walked our earth as a man - the Son of Man - we need to study His actions very carefully.

When He walked He would handle different types of people. There were times that He would engage and set people straight, like He did with some of the Scribes and Pharisees. But there were other times that He dealt with people very gently, with kindness and love. His gentle way of handling some of these people is what really jumps out at you when you really study how He handled different types of people.

Jesus is the perfect role model for all of us to study and learn from when it comes to gentleness. This was a divine quality that He had operating in Him and it's this kind of quality that is needed greatly in this world today.

Listen to me, there are so many people today who are beat up and hurt in their dealings with other people - that just a gentle word, a gentle touch from a christian could really open up a door for people to receive Jesus and His healing, saving, and deliverance power into their lives.

When God gives you the opportunity to reach out to someone who is hurting use this fruit of GENTLENESS to speak life into them and you will reap a great reward.

This might help to define Gentleness.
1. A kind disposition -
2. Controlled strength -
3. A disposition that is even-tempered, tranquil, balanced in Spirit,
     unpretentious and that has passions under control -
4. Willing to pardon injuries, correct faults, one who rules his spirit
     well -
