Last week you learnt about "Faithfulness” God is faithful.
He took the first step in your Salvation, He called you into fellowship
with his Son, Jesus. He is not going to abandon what He started.
He will bring it across the finish line because God is faithful.
Even if we are unfaithful or faithless, He remains faithful.

c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Gentleness as a Fruit of the Spirit is an outward action but it
comes from a person’s inner attitude – being humble.
Some might think that being gentle is a sign of weakness, but the
truth is, it is “God’s power used in love.”
When we are motivated by God’s love, then
surely we can give a gentle answer in any situation and it brings
the peace of God to whoever gets to hear it.
“Met een vriendelijk antwoord kalmeer je iemand die woedend is.
Maar met beledigende woorden maak je hem juist kwaad.” – Spreuken 15:1

Bible Story: (1 Samuel 25)
David and his friends were in the Desert. While they were there,
they were kind to the shepherds who were with them in the fields.
Those shepherds were servants of a rich but foolish man named Nabal,
his wife was named Abigail.
When it was time to shear the sheep, David sent some of his men
to Nabal to ask him for a gift which he would be kind enough to
give, considering that David and his men helped protect his sheep
in the fields. Instead of giving a gift, Nabal insulted David, and
this made David so mad that he planned to kill Nabal in revenge.
When Abigail heard about this, she acted quickly and wisely. She
gathered food and other supplies and went to David to make peace
With kind and gentle words coming from a humble heart, Abigail helped
David to see it would be wrong for him to kill Nabal. She asked
for forgiveness in behalf of her husband and through her careful
gentle words, David’s heart was changed. Read 1 Samuel 25:
When a meek or humble person decides to speak to an angry or highly
emotional person, his initial goal would not be to prove who is
right or wrong, but simply to show respect and kindness, even if
the other person is using very hurtful words. This kind of gentleness
is something that comes from the Holy Spirit, and to attempt to
do it using only our own human abilities would be futile. It takes
time and prayer and allowing the Spirit to mould us in order to
bear His fruits.
Even in correcting others, the Bible tells us to do it gently –
because God calls us to be humble and recognize that none of us
Therefore, we leave it up to God to judge; our role is to encourage
one another and to be gentle and kind and most of all, to pray that
God will touch people’s hearts and bring them to repentance
and belief in Jesus Christ so that they might be saved.
Gently pick up dolly and start to rock her in our arms. Do any of
you have a baby brother or sister? (Allow time for them to respond.)
How do we handle babies? (Allow time for response. Continue
to rock dolly) Babies are fragile. We have to be careful with
them. We are never rough with babies because it will hurt them.
We treat them with gentleness. God desires for us to be gentle in
our actions, our words, and our attitudes!
Jesus models gentleness to us by calling all of those who are tired
and suffering to find rest in Himself. He gently leads us, like
a Shepherd with His sheep. (Show Shepherd colouring Bible Verse)
