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?
