“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” Matthew 11:29-30
Who better to learn how to be meek than from than the One who calls us “to learn of Me”
Meekness is an attribute of human nature and behavior. It has been defined several ways: righteous, humble, teachable, and patient under suffering, long suffering willing to follow gospel teachings; an attribute of a true disciple.
To be spiritually meek I am not self-willed – not continually concerned with my own ways, ideas and wishes. I am willing to put myself in second place and submit myself to achieve what is good for others. Meekness is therefore the antithesis of self-will, self-interest, and self-assertiveness. Help me learn from You Lord to be meek in my inter-actions with my employer, my peers and those I serve. Amen.
