LIFE Skill: Gentleness

Open your Bibles to Matthew chapter 11 and read verses 28-30 together.

Jesus, Almighty and powerful, flips the cultural norm of toughness upside down as He is the most gentle, humble and loving man to ever step foot on the earth.

Discuss the following questions together as a family.

  1. How did Jesus display gentleness?
  2. Why do you think that in our world today, gentleness is often perceived as a sign of weakness?
  3. How has God been gentle with you?

Practical: Through prayer, surrender to God what He has asked you to let go of and trust Him for gentle rest.
