31 Days to Fruitful Living — Day 28

offering hands; meekness

To cultivate the fruit of gentleness, one must surrender personal rights.    The meek wholeheartedly offer themselves to an awesome God in reverence.  I love how Pastor Chuck Smith explains it:

“The word meek can probably best be defined

by putting a hyphen in the middle of it: me-ek.

It is again looking at myself in the light of the Lord

and realizing that I am nothing.”

“Happy are those who claim nothing,

for the whole earth will belong to them!”

Matthew 5:5, PHI

Q4U:   How do you define meekness?

Come back tomorrow for Day 28 of “31 Days to Fruitful Living.” We will chat about how to cultivate gentleness. I may have a black thumb, but I am determined to learn how to cultivate my spiritual life.

  1. Oh yes, Lyli … giving up all those rights that we hold so dear, that we grasp onto so tightly … this is a hard task, but so needed if we are to love and serve like our Redeemer calls us to! Thanks for putting this oh-so-needed message on the table today. God knows we need to go there!
