The gentleness in the New Testament is closely related to wisdom and spiritual growth. Galatians 6:1; 2 Timothy 2:25; and 1 Peter 3:15 all use gentleness to describe the way we are to correct or teach others. We are to submit our strength, including the strength of our convictions, to God's wisdom. We are to teach only God's point of view, not our own. And we are to accept that God's actions toward ourselves and others are the right actions, even when human wisdom thinks otherwise.
