Gentleness

Gentleness is a grace of God, revealing His divine nature. It reaches the heart and brings comfort and healing. It provides the spiritual atmosphere where mundane work can take on new meaning. With it discontent and condemnation are put to silence. In its presence patience comes to the overburdened. The Psalmist, in a psalm of thanksgiving, sang, "Thy gentleness hath made me great." Ps. 18:35.

The world in its spiritual hunger is reaching out for "the happy grace of gentleness," Christian Science Hymnal, No. 243. as a hymn describes it. A young child in school was asked to write what love meant to her. In simple words she told how nice it was when her grandmother washed her face "so smoothly." Gentleness had reached the child's heart in this simple task.
