SMS # 26: Matthew 5:5

5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.

Meekness involves submission and quiet obedience to God. It also involves suffering, bearing insults, or the foregoing of one’s rights. the meek contently enjoys whatever God gives, both in this life, and in the life (andworld) to come.  Does our life display meekness, or do we perennially complain about people, traffic, and other “small things “?

What can we learn from Christ’s meekness?
