Always be humble and gentle
When we fall into the trap of weariness, being humble and gentle in our situations can be next to impossible. Think about it, when you are incredibly tired of your circumstances, are you humble and gentle to others? Most likely, you are easy to anger and harsh.
Paul reminds us to keep a gentle and humble spirit. When we are “too tired” we aren’t always pleasant. Or gentle in our responses to our families and friends.
Oh, patience. I’m a pretty patient person in general. It usually takes a lot to get me riled up. But when I’m in weary mode, patience wears thin. Qucikly.
We have to remember to always pray for guidance. To love others despite their faults that make us want to scream. Why should we withhold patience and mercy to our husbands and children when we would hope for the same from them?
Be in the Spirit
Paul implores us to keep ourselves in the Spirit. When we let the Spirit help guide our way, we can have peace. It’s that peace that helps remind us no matter the circumstance, we can have patience, gentleness, and humbleness in Him.
So this week when you feel weary and worn, remember Ephesians 4:2-3. Keep a gentle and patient spirit as you go through your day.
