"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near." Philippians 4:4-5 NIV
“Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.”
Gentleness - Calm, kind, tender.
Or in the ESV version this verse uses the word;
Reasonableness - Sensible, rational, fair.
KJV; Moderation - Restraint, self-control, temperance.
Let all of these things be obvious to everyone that you pass by, whether in the store or on the street - these Christ like attributes can shine from who we are. And these characteristics shine even brighter and are a much greater testimony when they come from a person who is right in the middle of the toughest of life’s trials because it will show that the Lord truly is near.
