Daily Challenge-Meekness

September 17th, 2021

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to grow in meekness.

In Matthew 5:5, Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”

The idea of meekness has to do with “strength through restraint”. It is a quality that combines humility with a gentle spirit. The perfect example of this was Jesus. Though he was rich, yet for our sake he became poor. Even though He had 72,000 angels at his disposal for protection, Jesus chose the way of the cross. For a period of time, He emptied Himself of His Heavenly glory and stepped into a human body to take the nature of a servant.

When we see the evidence of injustice, meekness is the quality that will help us to confront it the right way. Look to the example of Jesus. We are challenged to use our influence to shine the light of the Gospel with the attitude of Christ, who demonstrated gentleness, humility and patience to a world in need of His grace.

Take the daily challenge to experience the blessing of growing in meekness on the journey of faith.
