Meet Cornelius, the Fruit of Gentleness
My name is Cornelius. I embody gentleness as the fruit of the Holy Spirit. I am cool tempered, soft, and tender. I use gentleness to my advantage in times of jealousness and selfish ambitions. I am a peace-maker, not a fighter. I look to be humble in my actions and respectful to others. If I treat others with gentleness, then they too will treat me with gentleness. Sometimes showing gentleness goes against what others are doing, but it’s important to stay on your own path in life. Being gentle is also called being meek. Meek is gentle, quiet, and careful which goes hand-in-hand with showing gentleness.
Showing empathy and a concern for others is a great way to embrace gentleness in life. I use self-control and thoughtfulness to decide the right thing to do in situations. Gentleness is strength under control. However, being gentle doesn’t mean you can’t be strong in your beliefs. In fact, some of the gentlest people are very strong in their beliefs. To make sure I am always showing gentleness, I ask myself if people would describe me as gentle. If you are looking to show more gentleness, try apologizing quickly after emotional outbursts. This show gentleness in times when you might not have been so gentle. Collect my fruit cards throughout the game and show gentleness to your opponents.
I encourage you to read these passages to get more of an understanding of gentleness.
