Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. MATTHEW 5:5
Jesus calls us to His rest, and meekness is His method!
But, we may be assured, the meek man is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority.
Rather, he may be in his moral life as bold as a lion and as strong as Samson, but he has stopped being fooled about himself. He has accepted God’s estimate of his own life.
He knows that he is as weak and helpless as God has declared him to be. Paradoxically, he knows at the same time that he is, in the sight of God, of more importance than angels. In himself, nothing! In God, everything!
The truly meek man rests perfectly content to allow God to place His own values. He will be patient to wait for the day when everything will get its proper price tag and real worth will come into its own—when the righteous shall shine forth in the kingdom of their Father!
Having attained a place of soul rest, he is willing to wait for the coming of that day!
Lord, sometimes I get very upset at the injustices I see all around me. I don’t want to appear obnoxious or angry in my encounters with others. Season my life with Your grace, Lord. You set the highest example for us to follow.
