A Good Work

Let your gentleness be evident to all.  (Philippians 4:4–5, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – Gentleness is one of two qualities (gentle and humble) that Jesus wants us to earn from Him.  The quality (part of our character) of being kind, tender, or mild-mannered.    Because it is to be part of our character it should be evident (obvious and clearly seen) to all.  Not just family and friends.  Not just fellow members of the faith.  All.  No one (not even our “enemies”) is excluded. 

Wouldn’t it be a much different world if we lived up to Paul’s directive?  If rather than conforming we transforming.

My Advice – Jesus taught us gentleness and humility.  It is up to us to learn. A thirst for knowledge is only quenched when the knowledge is applied.  It may seem a bit unnatural or forced to begin with.  But “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 1:6, NIV 1984).

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
