I READ: Proverbs 15:1- 4
Someone who is gentle is not the same as someone who is weak or indecisive. The word gentle comes from the Greek word Praus, which mens humble heart, meekness, caring, and not rough. Someone who is gentle/meek has a few characteristics and they are – 1) This person will have the willingness to suffer for others. Jesus was a good example of this. He suffered and was crucified because of His great love for us. 2) This person will be open to criticism from the Lord. David was a good example of this type of person. When prophet Nathan corrected David of his sin, David immediately repented and regretted his actions. Someone who is gentle/meek will always accept the truth and will not try to blame others. 3) This person is easily molded. Someone who is gentle/meek will be open to letting God mold him/her through the different situations that he/she experiences so that God’s plans can take place in his/her life.
I DECLARE: Matthew 5:5 – Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
I DO: What actions am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?
