Meekness [ according to the Bible ]


Meekness—- humbleness, tameness, extreme submission.

Christ set an example of meekness.  Psalm 45:4; Isa.53:7; Matt.11:29; 21:5; 2 Cor.10:1; 1 Peter2:21-23.       He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. [ Isaiah 53:7 ]

IN HIS TEACHINGS— Matt.5:38-45.

Meekness is a fruit of the spirit. Gal.5:22-23—

Galatians 5:22-23 (King James Version)

 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
