Some verses of the gentle side of Jesus…
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Then He put His arms around them, laid His hands on them and gave them His blessing.” [Mark 10:14-16]
“Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless You, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased You to do.” [Matthew 11:25-26]
.“Anyone who welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes Me.” [Matthew 18:5]
“Shoulder your yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” [Matthew 11:29-30]
Jesus wept for his friend even though he knew He was shortly going to raise him from the dead.
He spent time with His friends, Mary and Martha, and defended Mary when Martha criticised her.
When he wanted to go off to grieve and pray after He’d heard of his cousin’s beheading, but the crowds were clamouring after Him, He “took pity on them” and gave up his intention and joined to crowds to teach them.
Stories He told, like the lost sheep, [Luke 15 4-7] show His compassion.
His teaching on ‘love of enemies’ eg [Luke 6 verses 27-35]
His teaching about forgiveness.
His teaching to ‘love others as you love yourself’
Teachings of a loving heart, of a loving man.
