Today I heard children sweetly singing Silent Night. It made me think of how we are to be like children before the Lord. So if we are to be child-like and Christ-like, what does that look like, I thought? Then came the line, “Holy infant so tender and mild”.
Wow, what an impact that would have on our families, not to mention all of our brothers and sisters in Christ, if we were to become tender and mild.
I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast; like a child that is quieted is my soul. Psalm 131:2
During Advent, pray for the grace to become tender and mild, especially with your family.
Peace, Love, and Joy,
Encourage tenderness in this world. Pass it on.
