Gentle and Humble — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2

Thoughts on today’s verse

You mean I have to put up with that!?” There are those folks in life about whom the saying is true: “They are the grit out of which we are to fashion our pearl.” But our great example in this challenge is Jesus. Think of what he had to put up with in his 12 disciples. Remember how transformational his patience and gentleness with them was. Can we dare to less?

Prayer:

Give me strength and patience, O God, that I may be as loving, gentle, and patient with others as you have been with me. Through Jesus my Lord and hero I pray. Amen.
