I am a little late posting for the Virtue Series – family is always a priority!
Today I would like to talk about Gentleness. Here’s a very nice quotation by Abdu’l-Baha that says it all:
“Love and affinity are the fruits of a gentle disposition,
a pure nature and praiseworthy character”.
Since our younger daughter was born, we started emphasising gentleness even more in order to teach our older daughter to take better care of her sibling. It isn’t very easy for a young child not to get excited when playing with the baby, it is often overwhelming when babies grab things and don’t want to hand them back.
