The Bible sometimes translates the word "gentle" as being meek. And being meek is probably not something many of us aspire to be. Mainly because our definition of meekness not only sounds like weakness but the two words carry the same meaning. Here's the thing though, true gentleness is only accomplished with strength more than weakness.
Most gentle people have the potential to be rude or proud but instead deliberately choose not to behave in this manner. And it's in this intentional act that we find it takes more strength to be gentle than to be our natural harsh selves. What I'm saying is that unleashing our anger is usually easier than restraining ourselves, right? So, remember being meek is hardly weakness but actually is showing the strength the Lord has provided! A decision not to retaliate may look like a lack of action to many, but it's actually humility at work! And what it is showing is the strong spiritual action of trust and commitment to Christ!
Ephesians 4:2-3 "Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in Spirit, binding yourselves together in peace." (NLT)
