Meekness is defined by Merriam-Webster as gentle, kind, docile, overly submissive or compliant. I guess society thinks people who love the Lord are “too kind” or “too nice” but that’s because we work very hard at putting up with the world’s crap. We know someone who put up with ours, and still does. No matter what, God loves us and He will accept our apologies. Even when God knows we will keep doing it again, God forgives and loves us. Even if you don’t know Him, even if you reject Him, run from Him, blaspheme Him, He still loves you.
If we are to be like God, then we must be meek. I realized a while back that being strong sometimes means standing still in the midst of the storm, sometimes love is what you don’t say. When you don’t know what to say, say nothing. If someone is yelling at you for example, you should stand there and let them yell, because they are only making themselves look bad. And if you yell back, you not only contribute to their problems, but you look like the world, instead of Jesus. When you keep your mouth shut, you seem wise. Also, sometimes, you could go the extra mile, when they’re done yelling you could say “What’s really going on? Is there anything I can do? Do you need someone to talk to right now?” Stuff like that scares people, because they don’t understand it. They also have not been loved that way for the most part. 2 Corinthians 12:9 says “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” The world’s definition of weakness, is our strength. Kindness is strength, not weakness, but there is a point when we must leave a person alone, and leaving can be strength too.
