Fruit of the Spirit

“The meek person is gentle toward others even when insulted by them, even when scorned by them, even when harmed by them.”

Meekness "is the opposite of insisting that this world would be a better place if God and man alike just did things my way. Therefore, it is the opposite of grumbling against God’s providence as it’s expressed through circumstances or even through the hands of men." - Challies

On the Fruit of the Spirit, Part 9: Gentleness

"We ought to think seriously, then, about the pain we inflict.

Some of the pain we inflict comes from our own impatience, or frustration, or self-focus." - Olinger
