Couple Growth Challenges

Couple Challenge: Personal Reflection

173

In today’s world, the concept of gentleness is a lost art and it is looked down upon. But the Bible specifically includes gentleness as a Godly Christian characteristic. In fact, Jesus demonstrated gentleness to people he came in contact with. If you think about it, He could have easily shown all his power and glory and forced the people to believe He was who He said He was. Instead, he taught them and loved them with compassion and gentleness. When we think of gentleness, we typically think of a person who has a mild temper, soft manners, and sweet disposition. However, there is also an element of strength because it requires self-control, thoughtfulness, tact, and concern. As a life-long partner for your spouse, you also have power. Power to build up or tear down. Power to accuse or forgive. Power to exert your will or your authority over the other. Power to lay down the world’s best guilt trip to get your way. But God expects us to live in gentleness that flows from a heart that has learned how to be compassionate, kind, and humble. Take time to pray and ask God to show you when you need to exhibit gentleness and to know how to do so in every moment.

Scripture of the Day

Isaiah 12:2

Isaiah 12 2

What do you do when you’re strength is gone? Whine? Throw a first class pity party or maybe have a good old-fashioned temper tantrum? Give up? We need to remember that our strength is found in Christ. On the days where I don’t think I have one more ounce in me to give are the days I need to be more grounded in the Word of God than ever. Those are the days I need to “pray without ceasing.” Those are the days I turn on my Christian radio station and turn up the volume. Those are the days I need to surround myself with my Christian friends to seek encouragement from them and to know that they are praying for me. Because Christ is my salvation….He is also my strength and my song. Running low on strength? Spend some time singing, worshipping and praying. Christ will give you the strength to take that next step…and the next.

“I can do all things through Christ who give me strength.” — Philippians 4:13

Trivia Answer

TA038

What did Ahab do that made God more angry with him than all the kings before him? Here is the full passage of Scripture:

But Ahab son of Omri did what was evil in the Lord’s sight more than all who were before him. 31 Then, as if following the sin of Jeroboam son of Nebat were a trivial matter, he married Jezebel, the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and then proceeded to serve Baal and worship him. 32 He set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal that he had built in Samaria. 33 Ahab also made an Asherah pole. Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel than all the kings of Israel who were before him.

1 Kings 16:30-33 (HCSB)
