But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. —Galatians 5:22–23Take a moment to open your Bible and read Galatians 5:22–23. Notice meekness is hanging out right along with the other fruit of the Spirit — love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith. Wow, meekness must be some pretty POWERFUL stuff!
Meekness… really? I’ve always been under the impression that a person of meekness was someone who was quiet, easily blending into the crowd and, honestly, a little weak. Not until I began to study what meekness means did I come to understand it as a very potent attribute.
