Meekness is not weakness

Matthew 11:28-30 (AMP)
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden
and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light
and easy to be borne.

We all need rest in our souls at one time or another.  Jesus is awesome to hang around.  His burden is light and he’s comfortable.  Jesus was gentle, humble, and meek.  We tend to have a wrong view of meekness.  Meekness is not weakness at all.  Jesus was a powerful man! Being meek means we have strength and we are in control of situations.  It means we humble ourselves under the hand of God to go through what God wants us to go through and to be who God wants us to be.

Meekness is having the ability to do something but not doing it because it’s not what God wants you to do.  It takes power to humble yourself and not think you can do everything better than everyone else and God.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
