Matthew 5:5 (NIV)
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Meekness is not a reflection of someone who is weak. A meek person is someone who is gentle in spirit and has an attitude of self-control. We can be strong and powerful, through God’s strength and guidance but our attitude needs to be meek. We cannot see ourselves above others, we need to recognize that we all have strengths and weaknesses. God continues to bless us because of our meekness, we are blessed with an inheritance of the earth.
All to often people take advantage of people who are quiet but it is that meekness that maintains peace. God does not want us to be quarrelsome but peacemakers. Let’s try something. Tomorrow, make it a point to be more quiet throughout the day, listen and learn from others. Acknowledge the strengths of others. Praise God for the strengths and abilities that he has given you and remind yourself that that strength comes from God. Be a quiet, gentle spirit, exercising the power that God gives you in a controlled manner. There is power in his name, God bless you this day!
