Blessed Are the Meek for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5.
Pastor Mike made it very clear that “meek” isn’t “weak”…a very important distinction. In the Hebrew meek means limited. This fits well with the context of the beatitudes. In this case, the meek are the ones who are what once was called in America, “the silent majority.” Their worship is truly of the heart and understands what it means to humble one’s self before the Lord. The meek are those who fully realize the difference between the created (servant) and the creator (God).
In today’s world we are aware of physical strength being sought. We may think the quiet, introspected individuals are afraid to speak. By examining ourselves and our faith and putting into action what our faith means to us is not an act of a fearful person.
I am reminded of the well-known term “Know thyself” A person who knows and loves themselves is in a place of power. Christ asked us to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves. A Christian heart and mind can certainly be meek and strong and glorify our Father God.
After all, it is our inner being that the Lord sees and knows. We can hide much from the world but His eyes see all that we think, say and feel. He knows our intent. Let us be humble, meek and prayerful.
