Gentle people are often viewed as weak. They would rather persuade than force. They are self-giving rather than self-assertive. They prefer a kind word rather than a cutting remark. Yet these gentle qualities reveal a quiet power. A strong person may not be gentle, but a gentle person must be strong. This Fruit of the Spirit Bible study helps you discover the strength of being tender. The eight-volume Fruit of the Spirit Bible Studies series not only helps you discover what the Bible says about the vital traits that the Holy Spirit produces in believers, but also moves you beyond reflection and discussion to application. Designed for use in small groups or personal devotions, the interactive format will help you grow in your ability to reflect the character of Jesus.
