Like a snowflake that falls silently from the sky, softly coming to rest on a tender branch, a person who exhibits gentleness touches the lives of others. Such a person's loving presence never demands center stage and yet is noticed. A gentle person knows that gentleness is not a symptom of weakness, but a sign of strength. That's because such a person is secure in who God has created him or her to be.
God, though all powerful, is also gentle. When you choose not to force your plans, opinions, or desires upon other, you imitate Him. When you return a gentle word for a harsh one or offer a tender embrace to a troubled heart, you are showing the world that you are your Father's child.
Power can do by gentleness
what violence fails to accomplish.
