Fruits of the Spirit – Gentleness

Gentleness makes for peace
So that anger seems to cease.
It demonstrates wisdom
And operates on the honor system.

Gentleness produces results,
Overcomes and exults.
Creates friendships that last
Since no one wears a mask.

Gentleness communicates caring
For relationships needing repairing.
It’s what a disciple achieves
Because of the grace received.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
