Good Morning & Welcome!

Meek is not week!
Matthew 5:5 (NASB95)
5“Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:5 (NIV)
5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:5 (NLT)
5God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.
James 3:13 (NLT)
13If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
“gentleness of attitude and behavior, in contrast with harshness in one’s dealings with others—‘gentleness, meekness, mildness.’”
Pride looks at ourselves; Meekness looks toward God
How can we be gentle?
Do not get defensive
Don’t desire to be first
Don’t desire the spotlight
Romans 12:3,10
3Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.
10Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.
When we allow Jesus to take his proper place in our lives (as Lord of all), it makes it possible for the Holy Spirit to produce in us the virtue of gentleness.
