Faith In Action – Equipping The Saints: Meekness

Meek; means Mild, Humble, Patient and Gentle

If we were to complete a word cloud about Jesus, the one word that would present itself many times is meek. This could be a wonderful description, if not for a basic understanding held about the word ‘meek’.

Meek might  rhyme with weak, but they are not alike in meaning; weak/weakness means; is a lack of physical, metal or moral strength. That is something we could say fits in more with with a lot of today’s society, ‘morally weak’.

Meek/meekness is Quite strength, the kind of power Jesus displayed, but Jesus was unafraid to confront.

Galatians 5 verse 22 Tells us about the fruits of the Spirit; Love, Joy, Peace, PATIENCE, Kindness, Goodness, Faith, GENTLENESS and Self-control.

Two of the Fruits of the Spirit are covered by the one word “MEEK”.

It is a quality that the world is desperately in need of. Mathew The Beatitudes. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

Remember to be Meek, though it sound like weak is truly a quality, we need to be more  like Jesus {Our lord and Our Friend}.

Put on Meekness, it is a quite strength, that will witness to the world, that you are one of His.

God Bless.
