Your Daily Dose of Boldness – The First Gentle Giant

The First Gentle Giant

I’ve been accused of being a bull in a China shop. When I run down the stairs, it quite literally sounds like a herd of bison has entered the house. I’m often very honest (to a fault) in my assessment of situations and people. Gentleness is definitely not the first, or even tenth descriptive term someone would use for me. And until now, I was okay with this. I’m not a gentle person—so sue me, right? WRONG!

When the world cheers athletes who smash into each other and applaud insults as a form of entertainment, we get further and further away from one of Jesus’ best and strongest qualities. We succumb to a world that celebrates brashness over gentleness, and in truth, we view ‘gentleness’ as a weakness rather than a strength.

I entitled this message “The First Gentle Giant,” because Jesus, although an ordinary man, was a giant among men. When we think of Jesus, the terms “weakling” or “pushover” never come to mind. Instead, Jesus was a powerhouse and a force to be reckoned without throwing his weight around or using intimidation or threats. He was a “Gentle Giant” who overcame the most daunting of odds with quiet and gentle courage lacking in many of today’s leaders and superstars.

Today, being gentle is the bolder thing to do, while being rude and pushy is easier and more commonplace. I, myself, could be more delicate in my actions and speech toward others.

But that is what the fruit of the spirit is—a list of items that Jesus emulated with ease, while the rest of us, as Christians, can only strive to accomplish one at a time, in a plodding, imperfect sort of way. That doesn’t mean we don’t do it; it just means we do it the best way we can.
