April 12, 2017 – Meek and Righteous

Daily Challenges

The definition of meek is “quiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive”.

Being quiet isn’t what most of us are accustomed to in this day and age.
The fast pace and the constant noise from everywhere can be overwhelming.

Gentleness is sometimes seen as weakness and our compliance and obedience sometimes will allow for others to take advantage.

The definition of righteous is “morally right or justifiable”.

Anymore, it seems as if the line between right and wrong is blurred beyond recognition.

What’s right for some, is wrong for others and what’s wrong for others is right for some.

What Else Can We Do?

Especially in this day and age, it would be good if for a moment we could slow down and be quiet and gentle not only for ourselves, but for others.

So much to do, so much to see, so much to take in….sometimes it can be too much.
Our minds, hearts and souls could use a rest.

There is nothing weak about our compliance and obedience, especially to God.
It takes great strength and courage to be submissive, for any purpose.

Righteous begins with the word ‘right’, meaning true or correct.
So let’s begin with the truth.
The truth will always be in the right and in the light

The Bible Says

Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Psalm 15:2 & 5b
He who walks up rightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does these things shall never be moved.
