Daily Devotion: Meekness vs. Ridicule

Bible Reading:  Matthew 5:5 and Zephaniah 2:1-7

Key Verse:  Verse Matt 5:5 - Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Key Words:  Blessed are the meek

Meekness is not weakness.  It is our spirit under control.  The meek person can be taught, corrected, put in their place.  Seldom do you find a religious person with meekness, it is the character of a Christian not simply a religious person.

Meekness is the ability to give soft responses when corrected.

In Greek antiquities is the story of a young soldier who wrote to his sweetheart concerning a gift he longed to present to her: a silver stallion.  "He is the most magnificent animal I have ever seen," related the soldier, "but he responds obediently to the slightest command...He allows his master to direct him to his full potential.  He is truly a meek horse.”

The person who lacks in meekness will always struggle with being corrected.

What to do:
✞ Remember, he who isn't meek is weak.
