Gentleness Wk3

Because of Abigail's gentle spirit she was approachable, so much so that her servant could confide in her. Because of this, Abigail saved....


But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

JAMES 3:17

This week we learn of gentleness through the story of Abigail and Nabal. Because of Abigail’s gentle spirit she was approachable, so much so that her servant could confide in her. Because of this, Abigail saved her household from David and his men, and later became David’s wife. Watch the video below to learn how gentleness can be a part of your character too!


Memory Verse:

He tends His flock like a shepherd; He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.

ISAIAH 40:11

Going Further

Hi Everyone! A couple of ideas for family time after watching the video. We get to demonstrate gentleness toward others out of love, just as God does toward us. Let’s purpose to be gentle toward others.

Family Time:

  1. Read/Review: 1 Samuel 25:1-44
  2. Activity: Use the following acrostic or create your own. Make a poster and decorate it.
    • G – GRACIOUS
    • N – NICE
    • T – TENDER
    • L – LOVING
  3. Definition of GENTLENESS: Showing personal care and concern in meeting the needs of others, especially those who are defenseless. Choosing not to use size, or position of authority, to exercise power over someone else in a mean way. Not instilling fear in those under your authority, so that they can approach you if they are in need.
  4. Pray together as a family: Is there someone in your family who has not yet accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior?
