Gentleness

The quality of gentleness, like that of meekness, is oftentimes associated with weakness, but it is in reality the opposite of that. In its root meaning the word "gentle" signifies noble; of high birth. "Gentle" is defined as "honorable," befitting a person of high birth. May we not lift this quality of gentleness into one befitting a consciousness of high birth, even the spiritual understanding of man's nobility as a son of God, Spirit?

True gentleness then is never weakness; it is born of conscious power. One who knows God and the power of good most frequently shows his strength in gentleness. This enabled King David to. declare, "Thy gentleness hath made me great." Gentleness born of Spirit is with power.
