Be Gentle With Each Other

Be gentle with each other children, you are all special to me.

You children are all my lambs, as such you are all in need of tending. In as much as you are a lamb, you are also a shepherd. You need to treat each other with kindness and compassion, with respect and love. You must watch out for each other. This is how my flock will flourish.

Do not speak harshly with one another. Speak only with words of love. If you cannot do this, be aware and remain silent. It is better to hold your tongue than to use it as a weapon. Do not spew hurtful words at each, be understanding and gentle with each other

When you see one of my children in need, you must try to help them, even if it is difficult. If my child is lost you must be my shepherd and find them, bringing them back into the flock where they can be safe and cared for.

Loving is not always easy children but it is the chosen path for you. I will provide you with the strength and endurance to survive the journey. I will even provide assistance when you need it. You are not alone, I have many children and therefore have many shepherds.

Recognize children that you are all still learning, each of you is at a different level. As such each of you requires help at one time or another. As you are there for others, so too will others be there for you.

Be not at war with one another, be at peace. Help each other to grow in love and faith. Build each other up, do not tear each other down. Do not hate, but love one another because of your differences, not your similarities. You are all the same inside, each having a great capacity for love.

Do not be harsh with another. Settle yourself and find calm within so that you can interact in a loving manner. Angry words do not nurture they only harm and hurt, leaving scars as they go.

If someone hurts you, do not retaliate, rather turn the other cheek. If you ask how many times, I say to you as many are as needed. This doesn’t mean putting yourself in a dangerous situation on purpose, it means forgiving. Some lost sheep require a different shepherd.

Hold hope in your hearts and carry faith with you as you journey. Never forget that I am with you. When you meet others on your journey remember that they too are my children.

Be kind children. Let your path be one of light and love as you journey. When you come across one another on lifes’ travels remember to be gentle with each.
