There is Power in Meekness

Meekness is not weakness. In fact, it is the exact opposite of weakness. It is inner strength manifested. It is grace under pressure. It means not allowing subjectivity restrict objective thinking. People who are meek don’t allow range and anger to overtake them.
If we can just suspend our judgment and listen with our hearts, the world will be a much better place to live. We demonstrate meekness when we hold our tongue from lashing at our fellowmen when we feel hurt or maligned; it knows when to keep quiet when we have nothing good or encouraging to say.
The meek always have the upper hand. Being meek can save us from strained relationships and a lot of trouble.
