Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

 

From Lead. Serve. Love. by Gregory Lang

Act with tenderness.

Opposers of the Word must be corrected, not rudely but instead gently, kindly, humbly. Jesus’ tenderness drew people to him. In his gentle company, they stopped and listened to his message. Be like-minded, and be heard. Act with tenderness.

Does your life in Christ give you strength? Does his love comfort you? Do we share together in the spirit? Do you have mercy and kindness? If so, make me very happy by having the same thoughts, sharing the same love, and having one mind and purpose. – PHILIPPIANS 2:1–2

And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, a good teacher, and patient. – 2 TIMOTHY 2:24

People who think they are religious but say things they should not say are just fooling themselves. Their “religion” is worth nothing. – JAMES 1:26

Are there those among you who are truly wise and understanding? Then they should show it by living right and doing good things with a gentleness that comes from wisdom. – JAMES 3:13
