Meekness Is Not Weakness!

Recorded 5 November 2017 AM
/ David Horton / 2017

Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (NIV)

In this sermon, we see that meekness is not weakness. There are only two men in the Bible called meek: Jesus and Moses. Neither of them were pushovers. Meekness means ‘strength under control’. The Greek word referred to a wild horse that has been tamed or medicine that could tame a fever. We learn five ways that we can work on our reactions: 1) When someone serves you, be understanding not demanding, 2) When somebody disappoints you be gentle and not judgmental, 3) When someone disagrees with you, be tender without surrender, 4) When someone corrects you be teachable, not unreachable, 5) When somebody hurts you, be an actor not a reactor.
