Fruit of the Spirit- Meekness

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Galatians 5:22&23

Biblical meaning of meekness: Meekness is essentially an attitude or quality of heart whereby a person is willing to accept and submit without resistance to the will and desire of someone else.

What a great definition of meekness. God’s Word tells us to be willing to have an attitude of submission. That is preferring others before ourselves.

Most of all we must have a heart that is submission to God. Allow Him to change our attitude of being right to accepting another’s desire above our own.

(That does not mean we have to be submissive in an abusive situation. If you are in a relationship that you are suffering abuse, get out, pray that God will give you wisdom and show you where to go for help)
