Gentleness

How winning is the gentleness of Jesus! It has drawn the best in every age, and it never gave offense save to those who wilfully resisted the demands of Truth. Although Jesus rebuked sin, he did so because the offense was against God. His was the true gentleness, at-one with divine compassion, but it was a consuming fire to error.

Christian Science is hourly bringing the reminder that we should think gently,—that we may act and speak accordingly. It is not our business either to judge or to condemn; therefore what need have we for unkindness? If we attain the quality of gentleness, we shall be broader-minded, for we shall not only be able to listen unbiased to two or more sides of a question, but we shall be able to decide wisely and with justice.
