“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 11:29)
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;” (Colossians 3:12)
We are often under the illusion that meek, means week, but what it means is that we should be humble and teachable.
Jesus Christ was the epitome of meekness, humility and although a teacher, he was also teachable too. We can learn much about how to be meek, humble and teachable by reading about his life in the scriptures and doing all that we can to emulate his actions in our daily lives.
In today’s fast paced world of craziness, it takes only a moment for us to bend and help another, lift another person up physically, emotionally and spiritually by simple being there for them, no matter what. When we meekly ask in prayer for God’s guidance, we are promised an over flowing of blessings that will enable us to carry out God’s work here on the earth. But, it is up to us. Jesus Christ invites us to come unto him, to be like Him, to be meek, humble and teachable, like he was, that although we may find ourselves being the teacher, we are also teachable too.
There is much goodness in the world today, people have the potential to goodness or meekness and yet many do not serve others because they feel they would look weak, but it only takes one person to change the actions of many. This Easter weekend, may we meekly bow our heads to God in prayer and ask Him to give unto us ways to share our many blessings with those around us. May we find ways to serve one another in meekness as Jesus Christ served those around Him.
