DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

In my Sunday School class we once did a study on the
word "meek".

We found that it means mild, gentle, humble - yes;
but we also found that it means power under control,
having self-discipline.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Remember, the B-attitudes are traits of those who are living in
the kingdom of Heaven TODAY!

Someone once said that "humility is being more concerned with
one's own sin that the sin of others."


The "meek" are those who are self-disciplined.
By the power of God's Spirit entering them, they have received
power to control self and keep themselves from the ruinous
sins of the world.

The reward of practicing such self-discipline is to
"inherit the earth."

God gives sure knowledge that those who live for Christ in this
world will "rule and reign" with Christ for a thousand years.
(See Rev. 20:4-6)

The Bible says that "Now the man Moses was very meek,
above all the men which were upon the face of the earth."

(Num. 12:3)
Yet, we know that Moses led Israel for FORTY years through
the wilderness!

Christians, practice having your power under control.
Don't be WEAK!
Be MEEK!

Love ya!
