The Fruit of the Spirit is Gentleness
Written by: Steve Dalton and Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
This meditation is the ninth of a ten part series on The Fruit of the Spirit. Have you ever considered, when reading your Bible or sharing scripture, how your tone of voice can greatly alter its meaning? We might read a passage with a harsh tone of voice and have it come across as judgemental and condemning. We might read that same passage with a soft gentle voice and have it comes across as compassionate and understanding. Our God is a gentle God who wants to give his gift of gentleness to the world through us--the fruit of the Spirit is Gentleness.
We began this series with a contemplative overview of The Fruit of the Spirit, and the next seven episodes focused on the fruits of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, and Faithfulness. If you would like to do this particular series of biblical meditations in order, you'll want to begin with these eight meditations.
Welcome to the new and improved Mindful Worship! You should be seeing a lot of changes in the coming weeks and months. I'm working with a new Product Manager (I'll introduce him later) with a great vision and enthusiasm for this ministry. I'm excited about the partnership and believe you will be excited about the enhancements to come. Completing The Fruit of the Spirit series (there is only one left after this one!) is just the beginning! Stay tuned....
