“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Humble means that you do not place yourself above nor below anybody. You are confident in who you are. As Christians we know we are Jehovahs children, Jesus Christs servants and The Holy Spirits students. As such we do not need to be people pleasers nor to be abusive to others.
Gentle means to be considerate, tenderhearted, and compassionate. This means we are to be considerate (which also means respectful ) to others.
Tenderhearted means we are to be encouraging to others going through rough times. Compassion means we are to help others where there is a need.
Tenderhearted is mental while compassionate is taking physical action.
Patient means we are slow to lose our temper when others are slow to catch on or when they are just slow ( read in traffic or in check out lines ).
We need to judge others by the same degree in which we desire to be judged.
No, that does not mean we are not to judge others but that we all have trait that are annoying, like smacking lips loudly while eating. That is what making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love means.
These are impossible without the aid of the Holy Spirits power in us.
Prayer: I beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to emulate my idol Jesus Christ in all of my interactions this day.
I beseech Thee my love to bless me with discernment to know when I am being abused and take the proper course of action to stop it while behaving in a Christ like manner.
Por favor my Love bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance, strength and respect towards all that come my way this day. In the name of His with whom I so deeply desire to emulate in every aspect of my life I humbly request this, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with The Holy Spirits guidance, power and love in all of your interactions this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
