gentle nurturers

1 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 2:6 and we didn’t seek glory from humans, either from you or from others.
1 Thessalonians 2:7 Although we could have been a burden as Christ’s missionaries, instead we were gentle among you, as a nurse nurtures her own children.

First, Paul says that God had tested and approved of his ministry team, then he said that the Thessalonians themselves found them to be qualified as well. His team did not take advantage of those they ministered among. They didn’t lord it over them. They were gentle.

Lord, make us gentle nurturers of those you send us to.
