Moderation

“Let your moderation be know unto all.”
(Philippians 4:5)

This is the only time the word “moderation” is used in the Bible; and it does not have to do with temperance in food and drink; but it has to do with attitude and conduct.

The meaning is “mild and gentle.” Let all people in the church and in the world see and recognize you as a gentle and kind person. Be known, not as harsh and demanding (this seems to be the code of the day) but as “kind and tenderhearted” (Ephesians 4:32).
