"Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth." Matt. 5:5
I stumbled upon Revive Our Hearts Radio Ministry online (we don't get the program in our area) and started reading through The Beauty of Meekness programs. I was humbled and convicted. Of coarse we all have areas we need to work on and I have found that meekness can be the root of most of those areas.
At first I thought, meekness wasn't a quality I wanted. It seemed to me that people who are meek are walked on. If you look at a definition of meek you get; patient, long-suffering, spineless, compliant. That is exactly what I thought. Now let's look at the Bible's definition of meekness from the Easton's Bible Dictionary. Meekness-"a calm temper of mind, not easily provoked (James 3:13)". That is what I want. Believe me I have to remind myself daily usually many times a day to be meek. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit has joined me in this challenge.
