Gentleness


Galatians 6:1 Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also arenít tempted.

2 Timothy 2:25 in gentleness correcting those who oppose him: perhaps God may give them repentance leading to a full knowledge of the truth

1 Peter 3:15 . . . always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear

1 Peter 3:4 but in the hidden person of the heart, in the incorruptible adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God very precious.

Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

The power of gentleness is expounded in this proverb:

Proverbs 25:15 By patience a ruler is persuaded. A soft tongue breaks the bone.
