If we’re not failing, we’re not taking risks.

We will never insult God with small thinking or safe living.

God is not permissive. If He were, we would have the “Ten Suggestions.”

Each of us must learn to trust God for the quality of life that is filled with meekness/gentleness. That will come when we learn to be God-controlled, rather than self-controlled. ~ Rev. Ron Alexander, Lewiston, ID, 4/18/1982.

Meekness/gentleness will come as we turn the responsibility and authority for our lives over to Jesus. ~ Rev. Ron Alexander, Lewiston, ID, 4/18/1982.

Meekness, or gentleness, is not just a natural trait of our personality. It begins with the born again experience. The spirit of meekness/gentleness comes only as a result of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. ~ Rev. Ron Alexander, Lewiston, ID, 4/18/1982.

Matthew 5:5 states, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”(NIV)  A good share of those we interact with each day would probably suggest the word “meek” means weak, or fearful—maybe lowly or compliant. Yet, a more correct meaning would be “gentle.” A meekness, or gentleness, might be defined as strength under control. Jesus lived with every passion under control. Should we not strive to do the same? ~ Rev. Ron Alexander, Lewiston, ID, 4/18/1982.
