Seek to be Meek!

Meekness is strength under control.

Meekness is strength under control.  Albert Barnes defines meekness as “patience in the reception of injuries. It is neither meanness, nor a surrender of our rights, nor cowardice; but it is the opposite of sudden anger, of malice, of long-harbored vengeance.” 

We practice meekness when we quietly endue injustices for the sake of Christ or when we hold our tongue when we have the right to explode. It is a quality that requires the work of Holy Spirit within us. It is also a characteristic of a mature person. The practice of meekness is especially beneficial in relationships and in leadership. Seek to be meek.

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)
