Think on these things : Gentleness

Standard

Gentleness is power under control. It’s not weakness. This is the picture, it was used in the ancient Greek language of a huge, powerful stallion and when the stallion was broke and they would put the bit in its mouth and then you could guide this huge, powerful horse.

The Greek word for this powerful horse under control was “meek.” That’s the translation we get.

See, it’s not that Christians are weak… there’s power, under control. You don’t have to show off. You don’t have to have your way. You don’t have to blow people out. You don’t have to embarrass them even though you may have the position and the power to do that at times.

There’s a gentleness.

    I really like that. Gentleness is power under control. I work with incarcerated youth who’ve been conditioned to believe that gentleness is weakness.
