Showing Gentleness


What is a practical way you can teach your children about the value of gentleness?


Thank God for the people in your life who show you gentleness. Ask God to help you find ways to show His gentleness to others.


Gently tap objects as you walk through your house with your family. You can tap a window, a hardwood floor, a countertop, a glass vase or the front door. Discuss why you need to be gentle when you tap items around the house. Concentrate on how fragile items can break and hard items can hurt your hands.


Sometimes your actions are what you use to "tap" the people around us. It's important to remember that you can hurt others with your behavior, just as you can be hurt by what others do. Because you are fragile, God wants you to be gentle with others. Philippians 4:5 says, "Let your gentleness be evident to all." Your actions are evidence of your gentleness, and when you make an effort to be gentle with others, you show God's character to the world.
