Meekness Is Not Weakness
says, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” What is meekness? Well, let me tell you what it is not before I tell you what it is.
Meekness is not weakness. The word “meek” means “yielded.” It is the concept of strength under control. When an animal, especially a horse, has been domesticated, it has been trained so a rider can sit upon its back or so it can pull a plow. The term “meeked” is used to describe what has happened to that horse. It has been broken. Now it yields to the rider or a yoke.
Meekness is strength under control. Here is the attitude of meekness in our Lord, as described in Philippians 2:5-8
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
