Meekness vs. Weakness

To often we in the 21st century think that to be meek is to be weak. But the true meaning of the word is quite the opposite. To be meek is a great virtue to be admired among men.

Meekness is the ability to control your own temper, anger, frustration and bitterness with a calm mind that is not easly provoked. To be put in a unfavorable situation and accept the will of God with patient and hopeful endurance.

The use of the Greek word when applied to animals makes this clear, for it means “tame” when applied to wild animals. Meekness is to tame yourself even though you are strong.

So be Meek and Mighty in the faith.FullSizeR21
