Let your moderation be known unto all men.
Have a reputation for gentleness.
“When everything was wrong, and his very life seemed threatened, he did not reach for his nervous, tense, screaming mother, but for his only help…his ‘gentler’…his faded blue blanket, and he was comforted by it presence. I stood there thinking. This faded blue blanket probably had never given him a moment of pain…never given his teeth a rattling…never given his ears a screaming or threatening lecture. In fact, the only time there was any trouble was when he had temporarily lost it tot the washing machine and didn’t find it until later when it came out of the dryer. But there in the store, the blanket was been sought, found, and used…and the scattered pieces of his whole little world clicked silently back in to place.”
From The Richest Lady in Town, Joyce Landoff Heatherley
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Trust God for your Day, Today.
