Don't you just love this quote! It is so true and as we apply it to our grandchildren, we are reminded they are gifts from the hand of God. He chose the grandchildren we have to be our grandchildren - and us to be their grandma (or poppa). Since God chose the grandchildren we have there is every reason for us to love them with our all - and to be grandmas who show great gentleness to them.If we want our grandchildren to grow to be gentle people, we need to be gentle with them. If we speak in gentle ways and act in gentle ways with our grandchildren, the impact will be significant.
There is a reason gentleness is part of the Fruit of the Spirit - Jesus is gentle with us, so it is important for us to be people who are gentle, too. Make being gentle a gift you give the people you love.
