Blessed – Meek

May 26, 2019 By: David Henneke Series: Blessed Scripture: Matthew 5:5

This word (Meek) is much misunderstood. It does NOT denote cowardice or spinelessness or timidity. It does NOT suggest indecisiveness or a lack of confidence. It does NOT imply shyness or having a withdrawn personality. Make no mistake…Meekness is not weakness. Quite the opposite; Meekness is “strength under control.” A meek person reacts, then, with emotions appropriate to the occasion. A meek person EXERCISES self-control and self-control implies strength.

So we might say, “Blessed are the meek, for they have the strength to be humble.”
