The Fruits of the Spirit

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
Matthew 11:29

Fruits of the Spirit

Gentleness & Mercy - Path of Mercy

When you need help, where does your help come from? Where is the first place you go for help? If it isn't God, then it should be God. He can send His angels to surround and protect you. God will bring your help from people you love and know well or from people whom you do not know. He can speak to their hearts about your problem. Those who hear Him will act with the Fruit of His Spirit called, gentleness and mercy. They help because they love God and want you to know He has sent them to you.

We all want others to show us gentleness and mercy. God wants to give this same gift to all of us. If we receive it, we can share it with others. If we act as Jesus would act, others will know their help comes from God. They will want to know our wonderful God. Ask God to show you how to use this very special gift. Ask God how He want to use you to help others.

Spring has come to the Kid Cave.The Critter's neighbors are in trouble. A visitor to the campgrounds became careless. A fire took away their homes and they need food and shelter. The Critters are putting up signs to bring them to the Kid Cave. They want to keep their neighbors safe and show God's mercy to them. As they are helping their friends, God will bring peace to their own hearts.

Jesus wanted to help those who were hurting. He was gentle to everyone and is still giving mercy us all. When we use the gift of gentleness and mercy, Jesus does not want us to be proud of ourselves or what we have done. He wants us to tell them God sent us. When we do that they will want to know Him too! We need to serve others because we love Him. God will bring rest to our hearts as we extend His love and His mercy to others.
