"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
Humble- means not proud or arrogant but modest
Gentle-mild in temperment or behavior, kind and tender
Patient- state of endurance under difficult circumstances
Bearing-attitudes toward others
Love- virtue representing all human kindness
To me this scripture really hit home when I really studied the words and their meanings. How awesome would all our relationships be if we lived by these simple words. If all our attitudes reflected these simple actions. Thats what Christ is with us and thats why he wants us to resemble him by treating people with love, patience, and gentleness.
Ok I want everyone to take one day and treat every person you encounter with these actions. Instead of being quick to anger, be patient and kind, greet everyone with a kind word and see where you are at the end of the day =)
