Thought of the Day August 9, 2019 Clothe yourself with meekness

By 9:29 AM

Reflecting on meekness, Paul exhorts his disciples in their relationship with each other:  “And so, as a prisoner in the Lord, I beg you to walk in a manner worthy of the vocation to which you have been called: with all humility and meekness, with patience, supporting one another in charity.” (Ephesians 4:1-2)

Again in Colossians 3:12 he says“Therefore, clothe yourselves like the elect of God: holy and beloved, with hearts of mercy, kindness, humility, modesty, and patience.”

What is Paul possibly hinting at? Is it the teaching of Jesus identifying that the root of our sins against others come from within? Or as James indicates: “Where do wars and contentions among you come from? Is it not from this: from your own desires, which battle within your members?” (James 4:1)

What would happen if instead we sought to put on the virtue of meekness in our daily life?
