I urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace… (Ephesians 4:1-6)
St. Paul included the following in his letter to the Ephesians in approximately 60 AD: “I urge you to live…with all humility and gentleness…”
Pope Francis included the following in a homily in June of 2014: “Jesus did not come to conquer men like the kings and the powerful of this world, but He came to offer love with gentleness and humility. He allows us to witness this love to our brothers and sisters in humble and gentle service.”
Over 1900 years later, God’s message remains the same.
