BEATITUDE #3 THE MEEK
Bible verse for today (move the mouse over highlighted verses to read the verse)
Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
Comment
Matthew 11:29
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am MEEK and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

The Lord Jesus is meek , the word in Greek is praus=mildness of disposition, gentleness of spirit, meekness

Meekness toward God is that disposition of spirit in which we accept His dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or resisting. In the OT, the meek are those wholly relying on God rather than their own strength to defend against injustice. Thus, meekness toward evil people means knowing God is permitting the injuries they inflict, that He is using them to purify His elect, and that He will deliver His elect in His time (Isa 41:17, Luk 18:1-8). Gentleness or meekness is the opposite to self-assertiveness and self-interest. It stems from trust in God's goodness and control over the situation. The gentle person is not occupied with self at all. This is a work of the Holy Spirit, not of the human will (Gal 5:23).(Blueletterbible.com)

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the Lord’s anger.

The Lord and His Spirit makes us meek within. It is a fruit of the Spirit that enables us to be not unkind or cruel. It is the very reflection of Jesus who was meek as a lamb before the very ones who tried to kill Him. JP
