” The first and best victory is to conquer self”. PLATO
Do you know that gentleness is power that can lift you up and set you on high places? Do you know that our terrible enemy is our Ego? Do you know that God has created you to be an answer for someone’s problems? Do you know that, at the moment you are thinking about your problems. There are millions of people who are waiting for you to be their solution?
If you are not putting others first in your life, if you are not humble, if you don’t feel anything about those who are suffering around you, make sure that you are under the pressure of your own Ego. You are in a spiritual prison of the Ego. You are somewhere in yourself alone under the chains of your Ego.
The Lord hasn’t created you for your own benefits, he did for the benefits of others. So what are you doing today so that when you will pass on the other side , people will be remembering from you?
If you really want to make an impact, a difference in the lives of others, then try to fight against your own Ego. In his book, EGO IS THE ENEMY: The fight to master our Greatest opponent , RYAN HOLIDAY wrote:
Here , we are out setting out to do something. – Every great journey begins here -yet far too many of us never reach out our intended destination . Ego more often than not is the culprit. We build ourselves up with fantastical stories , we pretend we have it all figured out, we let our star burn bright and hot only to fizzle out, and we have no idea why. These are symptoms of Ego, for which humility and reality are the cure”
So how can we use the word of God to transform ourselves in order to be more gentle?
Here we ask ourselves theses questions
Are we gentle or not?
That is the question. How can one know that he is gentle or not? The problem is the Ego. Our Ego will not allow us to see it clearly because our eyes are closed to that reality. But let it put it in another way: Let presume that we are gentle and ask ourselves this question. Yes gentle we are but couldn’t we do better? The Psalms i want to propose you are assigned to help us to do better. Remember that if you are not kind, people around you may be suffering because of that.
Second : Do you we find it necessary?
You may ask yourself that question. If you feel that you are well as you are , then why pray for you to be gentle? But there is one thing you should know: Are you happy to meet a person who treat you kindly? If this is true, why shouldn’t you try to be that person towards others?
Let try prayer, we never know.
