Meekness: Strength Under Control

Meekness: Strength Under Control
This entry is part 22 of 23 in the series WWJD?

“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” ~Matthew 5:3

God has 2 dwellings: one in heaven and the other in a meek and thankful heart. ~Izaak Walton

WWJD? Reflection: Jesus was a walking example of meekness, which has been defined as “strength under control.” When we ask, “What Would Jesus Do?” our answer must include accepting a meek attitude. This means deliberate turning away from temptations to pride. The best way to cultivate meekness is to become aware of the miracle of God’s strength residing in such a weak vessel as us.
