For the month of April, I plan to make a conscious effort to be gentle, in all circumstances, despite my impatience and OCD tendencies. Titus 3:2 tells us to " ...always be gentle toward everyone," (emphasis added). The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines gentle as "having or showing a kind and quiet nature; not harsh or violent." In order to achieve a gentle spirit, I will pray each morning for God to guide me in exhibiting gentleness, especially toward my family. When I feel that all-too-familiar bubbling tension rising inside of me, I'll pray for God to help me maintain my composure and handle the situation with kindness. That's my intention, anyway =). May April shower us with an overabundance of gentleness!
