Tough or Tender

I remember hearing a preacher talk about his Bible reading one year. He said that he worked through the gospels, looking at the life of Christ. In the margin of each encounter that Jesus had with people, he placed the words, “Tough” or “Tender,” seeking to describe the encounter. When gathering the children to Himself and blessing them, Jesus was tender. When rebuking the Pharisees, Jesus was tough.

You may be surprised at how often Jesus was tough.
