Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. – Ephesians 4:2 NIV
It is easy to lose our patience, especially with a toddler. It takes extra effort and prayer to protect our little ones. Their brains are still developing so they can’t reason the same way an adult does.
The Lord knows what we need. He knows what we want and the difference between our wants and needs. He never gives us more than we can bear.
Gentleness comes from being in a grounded and restful place. It is not so easy when an energetic toddler is running around. We have to be grateful for the opportunities we have to rest. Amen.
