What is Gentleness?
Paul compared his ministry in 1 Thessalonians 2:7-8 to the gentleness a mother shows to her baby. Paul, like Jesus, showed great care for all the people he met. We can ask God for the same spirit of gentleness to help us care well for everyone around us.
The Bible mentions many ways we can be gentle, from being gentle with our words (Proverbs 15:1) and being gentle in heart (Matthew 11:29).

When you think of the word fruit, you probably think of something like an apple or a banana, right? Well when Paul talks about the "fruit of the Spirit" he is not referring to piece of fruit that you might eat with your lunch. What Paul has in mind here is what comes out of a person who has been filled with the Holy Spirit.
While I want my children to learn these incredible attributes given to us by the Holy Spirit, I also want them to know that no matter how they were created - it’s possible to obtain each one of these fruits for their lives!
