Meekness is not a quality we often seek. In today’s society, we are taught to believe in standing up for ourselves and shouting about our human rights. Even children in schools are taught about the Rights of the Child; and I have known, on more than one occasion, a child insisting they have a right to play when it is time to learn!
I wouldn’t want to return to the old-fashioned ways of being seen and not heard, but an arrogant and opinionated attitude is fast becoming the norm in our society. This is a godless way.
Whatever our attitude to life, we should adopt an inner spiritual humility when in prayer to God.
“Meek spirits are in high favour with the Father.” CH Spurgeon
If we are in need, we have the promise of His leading and being taught in His ways.
“He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.” Psalms 25:9 NLT
There is no better path than the one God has chosen for you to walk. It is where you will be happiest, find the blessings along the way and be closest to God.
Never forget, no matter how militant the world becomes about its rights, keep an inner attitude of humility and teachability before God.
“Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.” Psalms 25:5 NLT
