Philippians 4:5 
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. (NIV)

Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. (CSB)

Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. (NLT)

Gentleness is a superpower. Strength disciplined and under control declares testimony to a greater source and a higher purpose. May your gentleness be evident to all. 

May your gentleness declare the empowering grace of Jesus for selfless service. May your gentleness declare the empowering grace of Jesus for self-discipline and self-control. Self-discipline leads you to take the right lead measures. Self-control leads you to flee from all temptation. 

Gentleness is a gift of God’s grace to our world. Gentle men and gentle women extend the peace of God into homes and workplaces, fields of play and fields of contest. 

Gentleness soothes. Gentleness softens. Gentleness serves. 

How do people know Jesus is real and Jesus is near? Gentleness tames wild minds and unsettled hearts. Gentleness makes us considerate. Gentleness makes us helpful. 

Wherever you go today, whatever you do, look for gentleness. Thank God for it when you see it. Extend it every chance you get. Let it broaden your every consideration. Let it deepen your heart. Let it soften your speech, guide your hands, and direct your feet. Let it open your ears to hear more than is spoken. 

Gentleness is a superpower, a superpower uncomfortable with calling attention to itself. Gentleness shifts our focus to the needs of others. (See Philippians 2:1-5 for what it looks like and how it behaves.)

I will become a gentle man.

Our Father, may your gentleness be evident to everyone we meet. Bless with an ever-increasing measure of this grace. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
