LET’S TALK ABOUT MEEKNESS-pt 1
“The meek will he guide in justice: and the meek will he teach his way.” (Psalm 25:9 KJV)
The greatest teachers are the greatest learners. An uneducated man with a teachable spirit is worth a roomful of professors who think they know everything. Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matt 5:5) The meek will always have the world at their feet.
Meekness as I see it, simply is teachability – having a teachable heart. An old Arab proverb divides the world into four categories of people: the Simple, the Sleeping, the Foolish and the Wise.
“He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool. Shun him. (I submit to you that the simple credential required to be fully matriculated in the college of fools is to be ignorant of your ignorance!)
He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is simple. Teach him.
He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep. Wake him up.
He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise. Follow him.”
Job was a meek man, and a wise man. He prayed, “That which I see not teach thou me…” (Job 34:32)
Solomon was the wisest man before Christ. But he was meek. He said, “And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven;” (Ecclesiastes 1:13) That’s meekness – a teachable spirit “which is in the sight of God of great price.” (1 Peter 3:4)
A Chinese sage, widely famed for his wisdom was asked by some young men how he came to be so wise. “I’m not as wise as you think,” the old sage replied. “I only take of men more knowledgeable than myself and add their knowledge to mine! I learn from everybody. From some I learn what to do, from others what not to do.” YOU WILL SUCCEED! (To Be Continued)
