Jesus said in Matthew 11:29, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jesus was gentle in how he dealt with unbelieving people; fickle apostles; especially the downtrodden but he wasn’t weak. He was strong, but his presentation of strength was gentle. In the same way, strive to be gentle, not harsh when dealing with a child. Be gentle-strong.
