Isaiah 42:1-4 NIV
“Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.  He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets.  A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;  he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.”
What a contrast to so many examples of political leaders today. Two qualities of the Messiah’s leadership are held up here, his thirst for justice and his gentleness and concern for those around him.
Teach me to appreciate and display gentleness in our dealings with others today.
