Blessed are the Meek

Blessed are the Meek

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:5 (ESV)

Meekness has been described as “sweet reasonableness,” a spirit of humility, gentleness, and forgiveness. Jesus, our example, is the mighty Lord, full of courage and zeal, but He also displayed kindness, courtesy, and patience. Meekness allows us to avoid abusiveness in our speech, helps us refuse to hold grudges, and allows us to hear the reproof and correction that we need.
