Meek Means Weak?

Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the meek. For they will inherit the earth.” This morning one of our founders pinged me with news that a potential partner has leaked some sensitive information to the market. It has the potential to jeopardize our position and of course both of us were naturally upset. But after collecting my thoughts a bit, I told him that I’d suffered similar situations in the past, even getting blamed for leaks that were not my doing. But I ultimately knew that even if I was hurt in the short term, I had to have faith that God would make it right in the long term. And I’ve seen God come through time and again to protect me where all my own proactive self-defense fails. I’ve read the sermon on the mount countless times, but I never really had the chance to meditate on what it means to be meek. When I think meek, I think weak. I think of a coward who can’t accomplish anything he’s set out to do because he is powerless. But today upon reflection I’m realizing that meek is not weak. Meekness points to a mildness of disposition and a gentleness of spirit that actually can only come from a rock-solid faith in God’s goodness. It comes from a place of knowing God’s strength, which is so much more powerful than our own. Lord thank you for being my rock. I know I just need to abide in you, and you will take care of the rest. The battle is won. The war has been won. Because of what you’ve already done on the cross. I love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
