Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.  Galatians 6:1

If others have classified you as having a gentle spirit then it seems obvious that you’re heeding to the Spirit of God.  Being gentle with others (especially those who share like precious faith) is pleasing to God and shows what Christ is like.  When our Lord Jesus walked this earth He was gentle and lowly in heart and that is why sinners were not afraid to approach Him.  Therefore, may we as believers be sure not to give the appearance that we would never be overtaken in a trespass and that we would seem hard and unapproachable  to others, but let us rather show a lowly spirit that seeks the good of others no matter the cost to us.
