Gentle on the Hair

I yank it. I pull it. I stretch it. I rake my fingers through it carelessly. Yes, I’m talking about my hair. God has been showing me that the way I treat my hair is a barometer for the way I treat myself and others.

Dealing Gently with Difficult People

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” [Ephesians 4:32] The popular writer F.W.

Gentleness Through the Generations

Who in your life models gentleness? My mother, Lena, set an example of gentleness and passed it on to generations that followed her.

Choosing Gentleness

She was harsh with the other students. She snubbed her teachers. She intimidated me, and I was just a substitute secretary! Tianna was a sophomore in the small school where my husband was Director. She stood tall and proud and gazed down her nose at everyone. Looking regal, she always sported an intricate hairstyle and detailed, manicured fingernails. She wore beautiful gold jewelry with her school uniform. Although she seemed noble and composed, she was anything but gentle. Proverbs 15:1 {Read More}

She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” John 4:9. Can you imagine the loving gentleness of Christ that day? Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman just as he did everyone he crossed paths with then and encounters {Read More}
