In my natural state, I’m about as un-gentle as they come.  I tend to crash and bang through life at warp speed, leaving a wake of debris, destruction and devastation behind me.  I think that comes from being a lifelong Momma and wife and being so very busy.  My mind runs much faster than my body.  BUT! When dealing with someone I try desperately to put the brakes on!  To feel what they are feeling, to have that compassion for their hurting heart.  To be gentle with their spirit.

Oh my, how we have forgotten the Gift of Gentleness in dealing with people.  We’ve taken too many gut-punches from people all our life and the natural reaction is to return a gut-punch.

Prov. 15:1 “A soft answer turneth away wrath…”  It really does work!  Even though it is so very hard to do at times.  I know because it’s hard for me!
