The Mystery of Meekness
It took me a long time to even try to begin understanding what the word meek meant. For many years I thought it to be a different way of saying that someone was shy. I learned that meekness was so much more than that and actually something the Lord desires from us as believers. When studying this word I can’t help but to analyze how my life is lining up and if I can actually imagine people using the word meek to describe me. Does the Lord see me as meek or abrupt?
Strong’s concordance has the greek translation of the word meek as praos. This means to be mild, gentle, and kind. It’s a necessary balance of exercising power and avoiding harshness.
Today I’m featuring Kira from Joy Pursued as my favorite from last week’s Salt & Light Linkup because she did such an awesome job describing what meekness is and how we should be applying it to our everyday lives. Please make sure you visit her post “What does it mean to be meek?” before you link up today on Salt & Light. I guarantee you’ll gain much by studying the examples she gives.
