The virtue of hope grows gentleness within which in turn affects our behavior towards others. Hope helps us take the edge off our fearful thought patterns and connects us to a greater Good.
In a world that is hard, harsh, and full of suffering, gentleness is like salve for a wound. When we are hurting, a kind word or even a smile can lift our spirits, giving us hope.
Lord, thank you for drawing me to Your gentle, greater good
