Many people think that being a Christian means that you will get walked on and taken advantage of because we are called to be gentle. Gentleness though is not an excuse to be weak. In fact it means the opposite. The word means strength under control and it will change your life. You do not need to be subject to negative emotions, fear, the judgement of others and everything else that comes to steal life & joy from you. You can learn to harness the power of Jesus in you and learn that gentleness will change you & the situations around you.
