There is a wondrous charm in a gentle spirit

(J.R. Miller, "Help for the Day")

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." Ephesians 4:2

"Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart" Matthew 11:29

There is a wondrous charm in a gentle spirit.
For instance, the gentle girl in the home may not be . . .
  beautiful, nor
  well educated, nor
  clever in any way.
But wherever she moves, she leaves a blessing.

Close beside every Christian, stands One who holds all gifts and graces in His hands. Jesus looks into our face and asks what new adornment He shall give us. Let us pray for the spirit of gentleness, for no other gift will make us such a blessing to others.

"The fruit of the Spirit is . . . gentleness" Galatians 5:22

"Let your gentleness be evident to all." Philippians 4:5

"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12
