Choice, gentleness or harshness? Choose wisely.

Tell the daughter of  Zion, "Here is your king, who comes to you in gentleness, riding on an ass, riding on the foal of a beast of burden." Mathew 21 verse 5

"You know that in the world, rulers lord it over their subjects, and their great men make them feel the weight of authority." Mathew 20 verse 25

I have absolutely no doubt as to which leader I choose but what I see in the world today isn't gentle in any way whatsoever.
Gentleness is portrayed as weakness and love from those who are trying to uplift and assist the downtrodden and poor is repaid by the wealthy with harsh and hatred.
Martin Luther King, Princess Diana, Gandhi and Jesus all died young they were also all people who were trying to uplift the oppressed and downtrodden. Makes you think doesn't it? I'm no expert in politics but that just speaks volumes to me about the world we live in. Jesus tells us he has overcome the world and based on my own experience its true. Not only leaders react to kindness and love in this bizarre way but ordinary people too. Me, I choose the way of the gentle and of God. How do you react to the outcast in your midst, the one your friends and associates are slagging and ridiculing?
Oh by the way, Prince Harry has just gotten married and, from what I've noticed, is following in the footsteps of his mother, princess Dianna. Walk wisely prince Harry, your life and the gentleness of your mother is in the balance.
