|Fruit of the Spirit|
bearing with one another in love.”
Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)
We can’t turn on and off humility and gentleness as we do a water spigot. We shouldn’t choose to be humble one day and haughty the next.
Gentleness should be worn every day. Once we ask Jesus into our hearts, we belong to God at all times. We are to model Him before those in our lives.
When we feel ourselves getting worked up over an issue, we have to ask ourselves if God would be angry over the situation. If He would, then we should carefully conduct ourselves according to His instruction and guidance.
When we exercise patience, we tell those around us that we still love them-in spite of the circumstances.
I, for one, need to work on this in one area of my life.
