Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.


Devotion by Laurie Spencer


What is Meek?  The thesaurus offers so many possibilities.  Here are just a few.

Soft. Gentle. Powerless. Kind. Serene. Docile. Passive. Timid. Unassuming. Differential. Humble. Mild. Modest. Orderly. Peaceful. Resigned. Tame.

My Dad has several of these qualities. Kind. Considerate. Patient. Constant.  Orderly.  He deals with anger in a reserved way that doesn’t hurt others. There are many examples of people in our lives who are just like this. Can you think of someone?  Or can you count yourself as one?  How very blessed you are indeed.

But not all of us have these qualities.  I may find moments of peacefulness. There might be a day when I look back and see I was patient. Or extended kindness. But some of us just don’t fall into the meek category. I can’t turn my personality upside down. I can just pray that I don’t hurt others and recognize it’s important to nurture those small meek moments and help them grow.



Father, Mother God, help me to be the person you created me to be.
