Let your reasonableness[d] be known to everyone.
Everyone should aspire to have a reputation for . "reasonableness" or "gentleness" - both Christians, Jews, and Gentiles .
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
This verse is often taken out of context, often to imply that God will give you whatever you want if you just ask.
If you look at the two verses that proceed it, Paul wrote that he had "learned in whatever situation I am to be content". The next verse talks about being "brought low" and facing "hunger". This verse offers no support for easy success or a "Prosperity Gospel".
