MARCH 18 – GENTLE

3/18 1 Peter 3:13-16
13 Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t be afraid and don’t worry. 15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. 16 But you must do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak evil against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.
GENTLE
We who belong to Christ are able to develop a gentle spirit. Forgiveness, humility, love for the brethren, and time with Jesus all contribute to our nature. Let Jesus shape you into the person He would have you to be and one of your traits will be a gentle spirit.
