“Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5
I’ve been thinking about humility and meekness quite a bit the last few days, prompted, I suppose by this experience and also by a timely article Helen posted on her site.
Let me walk softly this day, humbly, and with a quiet spirit. Let us be shielded from the roar of busyness and from distractions that would snatch away our eyes from God and from His majesty. With meekness, let us take His Word into our souls, and thereon feast and draw strength.
In 1 Peter 3, we are warned against false adornment and wrong considerations; the writer pointing out that it is not our clothing, our hair styles or the wearing of gold that is meaningful… In verse 4, Peter arrives at the crux of the matter:
“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
