Here are my thoughts on gentleness...

Sometimes I forget the power of my words. I forget that love conquers all.

Proverbs 25:15 -
"Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone."

Gentleness is a command from God. He calls us to love others by honoring others and respecting them.

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

Our response to God's never-ending love and patience with us is gentleness and love toward all.

Colossians 3:12 -
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Gentleness is more beautiful than outward appearances. It is also more handsome :) It shows inward beauty and maturity.

1 Peter 3:4 -
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
