PUT ON MEEKNESS

PUT ON MEEKNESS

Colossians 3:11-14: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. 
12  Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13  Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14  And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Meditation: Meekness can be defined as having the right or power to do something, but refraining for the benefit of others. A meek person submits themselves to the will of God. Jesus is the greatest example of meekness. He had a right to be treated with reverence, yet, he did not demand this right and instead allowed himself to be crucified for our benefit. See. Phil. 2:6-8

When we demand things be our way we can become the opposite of meek, harsh and combative. Let us rather put on meekness which is gentle and patient.

Prayer: Gracious Heavenly Father, help us to put on meekness today. Thank you for demonstrating what it means to be meek. Amen.
