Thought for the day: Be prayerful and practice gentleness to show true strength
As I read the Bible, I am reminded often that Jesus was a man of prayer. With this in mind, as we look at character and how to live it out, we should seek to be prayerful in our own lives.
No matter how busy His ministry got, Jesus found time to be alone and pray. Whether it was in the garden of Gethsemane, across a river, or on a mountaintop, Jesus disappeared for a while in order to pray to God, the Father. People always tried to find Him, and He never turned them away, but He also made sure to make time spent with His heavenly Father a priority. May this be something our lives are noted by.
Okay, that was probably an obvious one. But how about this? Jesus was seen to have a spirit of gentleness.
There were certainly times where Jesus used stern words, but He knew when gentleness was appropriate. Children seemed to love coming to him, and He made sure the disciples knew not to deter them when they did so. When speaking with His disciples, mother, or other people, He could be very kind-hearted and gentle. But, when He was giving someone a rebuke or making a point in an argument, He knew when turning up the heat was necessary and only did so strategically. He could be characterized as meek. Meekness, or gentleness, is not weakness, but strength under control. In these emotionally-charged days this is a critical trait for we who would like to follow Jesus to practice.
In an era where we are seeing varying expressions of power, the one who is prayerful and shows gentleness is the true practitioner of strength and thus character.
