Gentleness! Just add some stars, then a dash of color! And voila! Armin the Astronaut! Exploring the vast reaches of space! Hey Armin, look what I made. That’s a nice, uh… It’s a hippo! You call that a hippo?! Looks more like a blue blob. You sure your pen didn’t explode all over your paper? Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! See ya! Losers! Ohh! Hey Gabe, don’t worry about Chet, I like your art. You do? Sure! I mean the colors are the wrong shade, and the lines are shaky, and the proportions are way off, and… I get it. It looks bad! Hmmm, what should I do? Titus 3:2 Tell them not to speak evil things against anyone. Remind them to live in peace. They must consider the needs of others. They must always be gentle toward everyone. Hey! I’ve got an idea! How about I give you some drawing tips and we can make your hippo even cooler! Yeah! And maybe we can put hippo in space! I like the sound of that! Wow! Cool! This is great! A flying hippo in space? Did you draw this Gabe? Yup! You’re the best drawer in class! Looks like you have some competition. Don’t worry Armin, Maybe someday you’ll be as good as me – if you practice. Ha, ha, Very funny. Let’s talk, what did we learn? How did Armin show gentleness toward Gabe? How can we live out what we’ve just learned? Do you think it’s hard to be gentle toward other people?
