My dad had a gentle way of instructing me when he found me going in a wrong direction. Don’t get me wrong, he led with a strong hand. I can’t remember a time when he reacted out of anger. His Godly example continues to guide me.
Brothers and sisters, if someone is overtaken in any wrongdoing, you who are spiritual, restore such a person with a gentle spirit, a watching out for yourselves so that you also won’t be tempted. Gal 6:1
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
