We live in a world that is permeated with violence. Every day we hear a fresh story of someone who has suffered a violent attack, which makes today’s talk very relevant. Today we talk about the fruit of the Spirit known as Meekness.
Most often meekness is defined as power under control. To be meek does not deny that we have power but it means that we use that power to help people instead of hurt them. We will look at how Jesus displayed meekness at a critical point in his life and then consider what steps we can take to grow the fruit of meekness in our own lives.
