Blessed Are The Meek

For They Shall Inherit The Earth.

Who are the meek? Is it possible to see meekness modeled in the21st Century world?

Meekness as defined by Webster’s New World Dictionary, means patience, mildness, not showing anger, or very humble in one’s feelings, actions, etc. The Guideposts concordance defines meek as patient, steadfast, or not harboring resentment.

Do we know people who seem to always let thing roll off their backs---they don’t retaliate or even grumble when faced with harsh circumstances. They don’t respond to anything derogatory or of a gossipy nature. They seem to go on as if nothing happened. These people qualify for extra bright stars in their future heavenly crowns.

The way of the meek is to practice turning those hurts over to God. Let’s see, they win at least twice--at the time of the issue and later when they inherit the earth.

  1. How true.

    I read a definition of meekness YEARS ago. It has stuck with me.

    Meekness isn't thinking more of others than myself; it is not thinking of myself at all.



I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
