Think it through
- Is there ever time to be proud in God’s eyes?
- What do you think gentleness looks like?
- What is the difference between humility and gentleness?
- Consider the life of Jesus; the perfect model of both humility and gentleness.
Father God, I confess the sin of pride. All I need to do is look on your majesty to understand I have nothing in myself to boast about. Instead you would have me use the gifts and talents you put in me in a humble way to bless others. Please help me to be gentle, amiable and kindly, not rough and severe. Help me to be more like you.
