Developing Meekness Position Statement
Meekness is a characteristic I have just recently become intrigued with. From what I understand about it it is a powerful characteristic. It basically means you are so secure in yourself that you are not easily ruffled, not easily offended. You are not prideful, so your ego cannot be easily damaged. It is the ability to be tough but tender at the same time. It is an amazing characteristic that Christ displayed well as He walked the earth. I believe as we seek to become more humble we will become more aware of our weaknesses and what we need to work on. When we take the time to listen and understand rather than be adamant in presenting our opinion, we are acting in meekness. When we can do this there is so much contention that can be avoided. This is not a characteristic easily developed, but I feel it is one that is worth the time and effort.
