Meekness

Posted on October 3, 2012 · Posted in Godward Orientation, Marriage

Meekness is being willing to give up my rights in order to put others first. Meekness waits for God to bring about justice.

Psalm 37:10-11

A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
 But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy great peace.
