A Gentle Leader

April 1 | Taken from this message by Adrian Rogers

Why is it that we sometimes are the most unkind to those we love the best? The most cutting remarks are sometimes in the home. There are many marriages that could be saved by a little gentleness. Gentleness is a mark of leadership.

Now you men are to be the head of your home. Second Timothy chapter 2 verse 4 says that the servant of the Lord must not strive but be gentle. The psalmist said to the Lord, “Thy gentleness hath made me great.” Do you want your children to be great? Be gentle to your children. You know, your words can so encourage them. Do you nag, or do you brag? Your children need gentleness. They will grow, they will blossom, with a father, a mother, who is gentle. The Bible says of a gracious woman, a wife, “The law of kindness is in her mouth.” Your children need this kindness perhaps more than anything else.
