Imagine being able to watch the apostle Paul in action. How did he treat people, especially those who often failed? In 1 Thessalonians, Paul gives us a glimpse of how he treated others: “We were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children.” The apostles also reminded the early church of Jesus’ gentleness: “By the meekness and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you” (2 Corinthians 10:1). Gentleness means being kind, tender, mild- mannered towards one another. We should always strive to have that gentle spirit as Jesus and the apostle Paul did.
