Gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22-23). The closer we get to the return of the Lord, the greater I should increase in gentleness toward all, not decrease in it. I should increase in kindness, showing love, and faithfulness, not decrease in it. I see the posts on facebook and twitter that bash and show contempt. That is not a characteristic of the Lord’s Spirit. May I grow in gentleness as You are gentle, and even more so as I see the day drawing near.
