#4766 – Gentleness of Spirit

Good morning people who inherit much by living life God’s way.

Matthew 5:5 NIV Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Meek: ‘mild, gentleness of spirit’

Inherit: ‘to be an heir to’

Earth: ‘soil, a religion, a solid part of the globe’

In these first three verses of the Beatitudes, what I clearly see is an upside-down kingdom; the opposite of the natural perspective and way of doing things.

It’s not about arrogance, natural strength, taking by force and dominating over in order to acquire much and achieve something significant. It is the opposite.

It’s about humility, brokenness and gentleness. It is about complete dependence upon God for everything.

This is what makes us great.
