Thought of the Day March 2, 2018 True meekness

By 9:24 AM

Jesus, who was like us in all things but sin, invites us to learn from him, "who was meek and humble of heart." In his meekness, Jesus was not weak but strong. When abused in word or action, thought hurtful, Jesus did not respond with equal venom, but with silence and forgiveness. He knew who he was. He was not what others thought or said of him. He was the beloved Son of the Father. His identity was in his relationship with the Father. Nothing people could say or do, even condemning him to the cruel death of crucifixion as a criminal, could not take away his identity. In meekness and humility, Jesus cried to the father: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." Our true identity is in our relationship with God. In all circumstances to remain in this relationship is to be meek and humble of heart.
