The alphabet provides a simple road map that will draw you into the readings and encourage you to take practical steps toward personal transformation.
“What if we chose gentleness in our responses, both in words and deeds? What would that look like? I think it would look a lot like maturity. Gentleness is named in the Scriptures as one of the Fruit of the Spirit. Have you ever seen ripe fruit on a little sapling? No. Fruit is the result of a tree or plant that is both healthy and mature. Likewise, the Fruit of the Spirit is displayed in someone who is healthy and mature.
Unfortunately, our world is becoming vastly devoid of gentleness. No place is this more evident than today’s social media. Political posts, conspiracy posts, I’m-right-you’re-wrong posts—they seem to be the dominant themes across all of the popular platforms. It seems there is no longer room for difference of opinion nor cordial debate. Social media has provided humanity the means to spew our toxic rhetoric and responses at one another in an unprecedented manner.
Gentleness calls for a different response.
Gentleness does not constitute losing one’s convictions or identity. It is a matter of responding with a tenderness of the heart. It is listening to others, not only hearing them, but also looking for understanding.”
