By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

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

WE HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

We have broken the nine into three groups.

1. Inward: love, joy, peace

2. Outward: longsuffering-patience,

gentleness-kindness, goodness.

3. Godward: faith-faithfulness, meekness,

temperance-self control.

Today’s study of MEEKNESS IS OUR 8TH STUDY, THE SECOND IN THE GODWARD GROUP. With one more in the Godward group to follow.

LET US TRY TO DEFINE MEEKNESS:

--great power and strength under control

--enduring injury with patience and without resentment --mild

--submissive --not violent --humility

--not haughty not arrogant

--not inclined to put one’s self forward or in front

--not assertive

--just common --modest --unpretentious

TEXT:

Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. MIND NOT HIGH THINGS,

But CONDESCEND TO MEN of low estate. BE NOT WISE IN YOUR OWN

CONCEIT.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly of heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.

1 Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT, which in the sight of God of great price.

2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive, but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient. 25 In MEEKNESS Instructing those that oppose themselves ...

Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if any man be overtaken in a fault, you which are spiritual, restore such a one in the SPIRIT OF MEEKNESS; considering yourself, lest you be tempted.

TWO LADIES IN A LAUNDRY MAT.

Two wives were doing their washing in a laundry mat.

They were both sitting mend their husband’s pants.

As they were sowing, the one lady said, "My husband

is so discouraged, he is so cold. We can’t find

anything good on TV. Nothing seems to go right for

him. Every one at work picks on him and we are not

appreciated by anyone. We cry a lot. Our home is so

sad and we live in despair. Our kids are brats. When

we go to church the song leader is dead. The pastor

is an idiot"

The other lady said, "My husband is so excited. He

can’t wait to go to church. He loves the sermons. We

go visit people all the time. He is so enthused. We

laugh all the time. We can’t wait to see what God is

going to do for us"

It got very quiet in the laundry mat as the two

women continued sewing on their husbands pants.

Seems one was patching the seat of the pants, the

other was mending the knees.

What do you think of my story?

DON’T PRAY FOR A HELPING HAND, IF YOU ARE NOT USING THE ONE AT THE END OF YOUR ARM!

Seems God has two dwellings --one in heaven and one in the hearts of the meek and the thankful.

The freest man in the world is the meek man that loves being a servant of Christ Jesus,
