Persuasion—encouraging others to believe or do something by reasoning or pleading with them.
Here are some things the scriptures teach us about gentleness and meekness:
Unfeigned—genuine; not faked or pretended.
Has someone shown you genuine love recently? How can you show that kind of love to others? Write about it in your journal.
Without Hypocrisy and without Guile
Hypocrisy—pretending to be something you are not.
Reproving Betimes with Sharpness
Reproving—scolding or correcting gently; expressing disapproval.
Betimes—speedily; early; before it is too late.
