“The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.” Psalm 25:9.
Meekness is a precious grace, willing to suffer silently, willing to endure trials. Meekness is patient and labours to be happy under all circumstances. Meekness is always thankful and makes its own songs of happiness, making melody in the heart of God. Meekness will suffer disappointment and wrong and will not retaliate.
A meek and quiet spirit will not be ever lookout for happiness for itself but will seek for self-forgetfulness and find sweet content and true satisfaction in making others happy.
It is not the seeking to climb to eminence that will make you great in God’s sight, but it is the humble life of goodness, of fidelity that will make you the object of the heavenly angels’ special guardianship. The Pattern Man … lived nearly thirty years in an obscure Galilean town, hidden away among the hills. All the angel host was at His command, yet He did not claim to be anything great or exalted…. –My Life Today, p. 56.
The most precious fruit of sanctification is the grace of meekness. When this grace presides in the soul the disposition is molded by its influence. There is a continual waiting upon God and a submission of the will to His. The understanding grasps every divine truth and the will bows to every divine precept, without doubting or murmuring. True meekness softens and subdues the heart and gives the mind a fitness for the engrafted word. It brings the thoughts into obedience to Jesus Christ. It opens the heart to the Word of God. –My Life Today, p. 253.
