Fruit of the Spirit Summer Week 7 - Gentleness

I am SO sorry for those that are following my blog because of my Fruit of the Spirit Summer! We went on vacation and I completely lost steam. In an effort to get them all out, I just finished the last 3 weeks and will post them all in separate posts. If any of you are doing these with your kids, I would love to hear how they are going!

Bible Verses/Story -
Proverbs 15: 1, "A gentle answer turns anger away.

1 Peter 3:3-4. It isthe perfect verse for our daughters
Braiding your hair doesn't make you beautiful. Wearing gold jewelry or fine clothes doesn't make you beautiful. Instead, your beauty comes from inside you. It is the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. Beauty like that doesn't fade away. God places great value on it.

Matthew 11:28-30 (New International Reader's Version)
"Come to me, all of you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest. Become my servants and learn from me. I am gentle and free of pride. You will find rest for your souls. Serving me is easy, and my load is light."

Luke 15:3-7 - Jesus as the Good Shepherd
