LENT 2017 Lenten Activities + Prayers - 4th Sunday


As we continue our consideration of the “Fruit of Spirit,” it’s important to remember that these fruits are not only attributes for us to prize and prioritize as important, this fruit also describes what God is like; and this list of fruits are some the very character traits of God that we are called to emulate as image-bearers (Gen. 1:26).

The 8th fruit is GENTLENESS. The Greek word used for gentleness in this passage is prautes and it can mean meekness, mildness, and humble kindness.

Much like yesterday's reflection on faithfulness, it is an interesting thought to think of God as being meek and mild. Take some time today to consider God's mildness and humble kindness. And rejoice.
