Meekness is Not Weakness

Matthew 5 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth

 

Many would consider being meek as being weak.  When they hear the word meek they automatically imagine someone who allows people to walk all over them, someone who is subservient.  But the kind of meekness the Bible talks about is different.  It’s being so strong that you are in control of your emotions and actions. Don’t confuse meekness for weakness.  To be meek is to be:  submissive to God, obedient, patient and peaceful.
