Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
What is meekness? As I reflect on this verse I think of those that are humble and gentle. It is not about weakness or ineffectiveness but people who champion the needs of the weak and oppressed. Meek people do not exploit others, they are not given to vengeance or violence. A meek person does not seize power for self use, not malicious or condescending to anyone.
I wonder what songs come to your mind as your reflect on this passage? What songs are you singing in your children and family ministries that convey this?
