Matthew 5:5 – Meekness is NOT weakness, timidity, or apathy. Meekness is the refusal to wield strength over others for self-centered purposes. In Psalm 37, the writer contrasts seizing power for my immediate purposes v. waiting on God; that’s the contrast between meek and non-meek. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said that meekness “leaves everything in the hands of God.”
Jesus call to meekness and his corresponding promise of inheriting the earth, are gigantic standard for his disciples.
