It’s one we don’t think about. I imagine you haven’t heard a sermon on it in a long time, if ever. It first came up in Deuteronomy and was re-emphasized a few times in the New Testament. More importantly, it has incredible potential to keep you and me out of deep messes. We can hardly imagine why it is important at all, but it got enough mileage in Scripture to show us the Lord thought it a worthy concept.
I'm tired of watching conflict destroy families and churches. Satan seems to be carrying out his plans of 'divide and conquer' as easily among Christians as in the world. If we want victory, we must recognize where these conflicts come from...
How do you solve problems and resolve conflict... with your head or heart? Personally, I don't like it when others come at me feelings-first because I feel so ill-equipped. I usually charge head-first into issues, but that generally doesn't bode well with the softer sex (if you know what I mean). When a conversation or confrontation starts with, "I feel" - I must admit I feel quite lost. It's like I've started a trip without knowing where point A is: as if I have no reference point. Not that I am justifying myself, but part of me just rebels against the idea of submitting to somebody else's perspective as my authority.
Meekness is a rare concept in our culture – even among Christians. We can’t define it, we don’t know where to get it, and aren’t sure we’d really even want to keep it if we had it! It’s a word being used far more to describe our economy than our spirits. Tragically, meekness is becoming synonymous with weakness; when in actuality, meekness is odds with our weakness. Meekness will overturn your weakness if you will allow it!
