Galatians 5:22-23 Gentle Puppy Love
I wish I hadn’t gotten distracted and finished teaching the fruits of the Spirit. I wanted to focus on current events and try to tell the world; you aren’t behaving like the Christian you say you are, even myself. The Lord has kinda said, the fruits of the Spirit need to be taught cause the people of the world identify us if we call ourselves Christian, by the fruits we bear.
The next fruit of the Holy Spirit is gentleness or meekness, depending on what English Bible you read. Still, gentleness can be practiced in any language. The best example of gentleness and no language need is the meekness of a puppy. A puppy can make any heart melt; puppies can be taken to the sick, young and old, be like medicine. A puppy desires 100% attention and loves to cuddle. It’s sad but true if some person mistreats a puppy, will return looking for attention. The Holy Spirit gives those who submit to the Lord the fruit of gentleness. He wants me and you to give attention to everyone like a puppy, not like a vicious guard dog. A person full of gentleness turns no one away, always greets with a smile, and shows no one any disrespect, even if there is disagreement. It is also beneficial for a person to have a spirit that is full of gentleness. Jesus tells His followers if we follow His teaching and are gentle to others.
Matthew 11:28“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
The medical health world argues with the words of Jesus that gentleness takes the heavyweight of one person’s heart and body. Life teaches us to be hard, and we can become desensitized. If we don’t show gentleness to others, we will build a hard heart with our loved ones and any relationship. Gentleness allows others to open themselves to others. Everyone loves being around a gentle spirit. Having the gentleness of a pet is also beneficial. It can take years for a person’s life. Having a hard heart full of bitterness and making a person’s life shorter. Mentally and physically, pain can come from it; long depression and being ungentle to someone can be harmed. It can prevent a person from having the joy of an entire life, constantly worrying about how people feel about them or something they did in a past event. Stress can reduce a person’s immune system and are them prone to get sick easier. Being gentle invites peace, being harsh or hateful, and total discomfort. My dear friend, the world is in a mess right now because people hold on to past sins; they have no gentleness in their hearts cause it is full of bitterness, anger, and rage. But those people will not inherit the earth; they are fighting a losing battle cause of the word God the gentle will be last to stand on the planet. God Bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you, and so do I. His bondservant, Samuel J H.
