Fruit of the Spirit: GENTLENESSOur abrasive world is desperately in need of gentleness.Gentleness, by biblical definition, is a form of temperance. Gentleness is a characteristic of God that tempers our anger, wrath, and desire for vengeance when we suffer or witness injustice. Gentleness is the moderation, not the absence, of anger. It can be viewed as proper self-mastery of our thoughts, words and actions that is a gift of God enabling us to glorify him in the life we enjoy together in him. Gentleness is cultivated through union with Jesus Christ. {Masters of Self: Cultivating Gentleness in an Age of Outrage, Desiring God}If the vice of anger is among the severest spiritual afflictions of our age, then the virtue of gentleness is among the most needful spiritual medicines. I believe that gentleness comes out often in our words - our words to ourself in our heads, to others in person, on the phone, or on social media! Y’all our words have POWER. Our words are the outward reflection of our inward heart. They have the power to build up and {sadly} so easily have the power to tear down. I believe that today the Lord wants you to use your words to encourage someone, speak life to someone, or share the truth of the Gospel with someone. I’m praying that the Lord would continue to change our hearts internally by the power of his Spirit so that what comes out of us would be the gentleness to SPEAK LIFE to those around us..I’m excited for you to carry this tote as a constant reminder to rely on the Spirit to change your heart so you can speak life and gentleness to those you encounter 🖤 “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” {Ephesians‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭ESV‬‬}“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”‭‭{Proverbs‬ ‭18:21‬ ‭ESV‬‬}“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”‭‭{Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭ESV‬‬}PRODUCT DETAILS:* Eco-friendly canvas tote*15”x14”*Inside pocket* Fully hand-lettered design
