Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.Philippians 4:5
Let Your Gentleness Be Known
Consideration for others is an important quality to have. Too many times we see the opposite in people; we see someone who is not kind and considerate to those around them and hurtful in the way they live. This verse tells us to be considerate in ALL we do, not just with people we like or are close to. We should be considerate with our coworkers, our family members, those we know are lost, and people we do not get along with. Another word for consideration is gentleness. We do not know the hearts of those around us, so when we do not handle others with care or gentleness, we may be destroying our witness.
God has been gentle with us, so we ought to be gentle with others. He is a God who cares for His people. He wants His people to care for the lost so they may come to know Him.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for your gentleness. You have proven to be a Father who cares for His children. May I care for others in the way you have cared for me. Amen.
