I used to hate the word gentleness because I thought it was synonymous with weakness. When I look at a baby I see the word, not when I look at a leader! Recently, within my conversation with friends, I've seen a change in how I want communicate.
Gentleness, in its essence is a disposition of graciousness. When others offer harsh criticism, we respond with genuine words.
Gentleness is a kind of inner peace that is strong in its fortitude but soft in its communication. A gentle person cultivates a warm environment that stands in direct contrast with our cold schedules.
How would Gentleness change your interactions today?
