Meek

DSC00116

Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth. (Numbers 12:3, ESV)

Meekness is teachability. It is the readiness to be shown, which includes the readiness to lay down my fixed notions, my objections. … It is the child’s glad ‘Show me! Is this the way? Please help me.’ — Elisabeth Elliot

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5, NIV)

Meekness is not weakness, but strength under control. It is a refusal to defend ourselves or to retaliate against wrong—to be humble, non-defensive, and unassuming in the face of brutal and heartless attack. There is a wonderful sense of the Father’s approval and affection when we lay down our lives in this way. — David Roper

Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. (Psalm 25:8-9, KJV)

Whenever an affront or wrong is inflicted on thee, avoid vindicating, or answering for thyself. Be still toward man, unless it be to induce thy brother to repent; but turn instantly to thy righteous Judge, asking Him to right the wrong and vindicate the right. — F.B. Meyer

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29, KJV)
