Sermon on the Mount | Meekness: Part 3

Blessed are the humble,
for they will inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)

Blessed are those whose lives reflect the fact they trust God, commit the totality of their lives to God, and do not fret when it appears the way of God may not be going forward. 

Blessed are those who have the power to absorb adversity and criticism without lashing back.  

Blessed are those who have a proper attitude about themselves and express that properly in their relationships with others.  

Blessed is the person who does not assert himself.  

Blessed is the person who does not demand his so-called rights and/or privileges.  

Blessed is the person who is not exclusively watching out for his own self-interests.   

Blessed is the person who is AMAZED that God and man can think of him as well as they do and treat him as well as they do.

Blessed are the humble. 

Blessed are those who are mild and gentle in their relationship with others.  

Blessed are those who are free from need to retaliate or have revenge.  

Blessed are those who are patient, especially when they suffer unjustly.  

Blessed are those who are ready – always ready – to listen and learn.  

Blessed are those who have such a poor idea of themselves and their capabilities that they are ready to listen to others.  

Blessed are those who are teachable.  

Blessed are those who leave everything – rights, causes, future – in the hands of God.  

Blessed are the humble.

WHO INHERIT THE EARTH.
