To live a meek life is to have a strong, but tender and humble life. It is a strong yet teachable spirit. It is not being weak, bowing or spineless. It is a believer who is strong, very strong, yet they are humble and tender. It is a person with all the emotions and ability to take and conquer, but he is able to control himself. It is disciplined man, disciplined because he is God controlled. The opposite of meekness is arrogance or pride. In too many people there is an air of sufficiency and superiority. A MEEK person knows that he has needs and does not have all the answers.
Who are the meek?
- The person who is controlled, not undisciplined. The mind and body are disciplined, never let loose. Passion, urges, speech, behavior, sight, and touch are always controlled.
- The person who is humble, not prideful
- The person who is gentle, not easily provoked. He is always in control when dealing with people: Cool, even-tempered, able to show displeasure without reacting impulsively, able to answer softly.
What is the reward for living a meek life? “The meek shall inherit the earth.” The meek inherit the earth the now; that is, they presently enjoy and experience the good things of the earth. The meek have found themselves. They are comfortable with themselves. They know who they are; therefore they are strong and confident, yet tender and humble.
The meek know where they are going; they are teachable. They have nothing to prove. They have purpose, meaning, and significance in life. The earth is theirs eternally, that is, the new heaven and earth. An inheritance of eternal life and dominion is promised them for they are joint-heirs with Christ.
Remember the promise and the reward of Jesus Christ – “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.” A meek life is a blessed life.
“There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.” People Matter. Meek people love people.
Because He is – I am
