“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
Galatians 5:22-23

The fruit of the Spirit is gentleness.

Have you ever held a brand new baby? They are so small and fragile that we have to be really gentle with them, don’t we? That is one way we have to be gentle. The other type of gentleness is being kind with our words. For example, if someone hurts your feelings or messes up something that belongs to you it can be frustrating, right? A lot of times our response can be harsh but God tells us to be gentle with our actions and words. If we are struggling with being harsh, we can stop and pause, even pray before we respond to the situation.
