“Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near.” (Philippians 4: 5, Amplified Bible)
What do we want to present to the world? Does it really matter how we act in our little day to day lives?
Yes! Your true spirit is the evidence of God’s nearness. God’s presence isn’t some threat to us that we must behave or else. It is that availability of His own character with us and in us, at the ready to reveal itself through our inherent goodness. We do naturally have gentle spirits, and we can let this sweet tenderness be a guide in our actions.
And it starts with our thoughts. As we become conscious of God’s infinitude and authority and Love, we can feel those beautiful qualities of graciousness, mercy, selflessness, and patience resonate within us. We are grateful for this Love and realize that its fullness needs to be expressed.
This respect and devotion to God, to Love, becomes alive in our lives, and because its Source is God, it is very powerful. Our simple goodness is healing and radiates out for all to see. Our humble kindness has an impact and shows all that the Lord is indeed near. Hallelujah!
