Summer Project – Gentleness


-We must cooperate with God.

-God is in charge of the project.

-I must stay attached.


Gentleness—(Prautes) strength under control


How Does God Develop This Fruit?

  1. Sometimes gently

Psalm 103:10-11, John 4, John 8, Luke 19

  1. Sometimes through difficulty.

2 Tim. 2:25, 1 Peter 3:9


Why Gentleness?


“instruct them gently, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth—and that they will come to their senses and escape the trap of the devil who has taken them captive to do his will.” 2 Tim. 2:25-26

 “Let your gentleness be evident to all—The Lord is near.”      Phil 4:5
