Thought For Today - August 15
 What did Jesus say? - About meekness?

    What did Jesus say about meekness? Jesus said: "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5: 5.
    What does it mean to be meek? To be meek means to be submissive; to be humble; gentle, easily entreated.
    In our sin cursed world culture, meekness is sometimes considered weakness, where the world's philosophy is the survival of the fittest and strongest, and most aggressive; but Jesus taught otherwise. Jesus taught that meekness is strength and power, and will result in blessing from God.
    Meekness ought to be an outstanding attribute of a true child of God as he follows the example of Jesus.
    "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth." Isaiah 53.7 Jesus said: "Take my yoke upon you and lean of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls." Matthew 21:5
    An example of meekness is found in Moses who led the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt, of whom it was said that he was the meekest man on earth. "(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men that were upon the face of the earth)" Numbers 12:3. Another example of meekness is Jesus who exhibited extreme meekness at his trial and crucifixion, yet he conquered the most formidable enemy of all, death itself, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, waiting for the signal to come and reclaim the earth and its' inhabitants for the glory of God as king of kings and Lord of Lords.
Let us pray that we can be more like Jesus because he has told us that the meek will eventually inherit the earth.
