Be Gentle



There is a story about one who was sent out to spread the news of the Lord to a group of people, but was met with resistance and an unwillingness to hear.  Later, as this one lamented to his friends about the frustration of this journey, a wise one said:

"Perhaps you were too eager, too demanding.  Perhaps the gentle approach would have been better." 

How often do we, too, fall into the trap of being too eager, too demanding?   Indeed, to be gentle in our approach may be the path less traveled, and it can make all the difference.
