The gentle person: chooses to walk away rather then fight. Chooses to ignore an offense rather then be offended. Chooses not to argue or be upset. Chooses love over anger. Chooses to be bigger than their problem.
The goodness of God is seen in God’s gentleness. The true virtue of meekness / gentleness is recognizing that all of us are sinners.
Living the life of faith empowered by the Holy Spirit involves a change of attitude and in the Sermon on the Mount Jesus gave us the Godly attitudes that He wants us to have to live the life.
