Me: How is the pig racing going?
Prodigal: Good, there ain’t no grass gowin’ under that ones feet.
Me: Looks so. I will share when the race is finished.
This is from the book When Sinners Say I Do by Dave Harvey
Meekness has nothing to do with being weak or passive. Meekness is power harnessed by love. It is an expression of humility that will not bristle or defend when challenged about motives. In fact, a meek person realized that he could have selfish motives and must evaluate himself. This fruit of the Spirit helps us govern our anger, restrain our tongue, and maintain our peace. A.W. Tozer said, “The meek man…will have attained a place of soul rest. As he walks on in meekness he will be happy to let God defend him. The old struggle to defend himself is over. He has found the peace which meekness brings.
Thank you LORD! How God is good to remind of us the truth over and over again. I love to try and win an argument with words. Aaron so do you. Sometimes though we need to be reminded that it is about meekness and not the most intellectual speech.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
