Gentleness and Strength

Akin to meekness is gentleness. Years ago I was impressed by an illustration from F.B. Meyer (1847-1929). Here’s my revised version.

Imagine two boys asked to relocate identical objects. The weaker boy grunts as he picks up the object, staggers to the desired spot, and sets the object down with a thud.

The stronger boys picks up the object with apparent ease, strides to the destination, and sets the object down softly.

Gentleness is permitted by strength.
