    Very thought-provoking. Meekness and humility are underrated qualities in my opinion. Over the years, I have worked with so many people who thought nothing of stepping on other people to get what they wanted. I’ve never wanted to be that person!

      Thanks so much for reading and sharing your thoughts! It’s great that you identified who you never want to be… it shows that it’s not you 💖

    This was a very interesting read. I typically think of humility, humbleness and pride as positive qualities, though the pride that Pastor Natalie is discussing is different than my normal definition. I think of pride in terms of feeling proud, but not at the expense of someone else. For example, I have pride in our son because he is a good person and is contributing something positive to the world. I also have pride in having been an elementary teacher for thirty-one years because I feel what teachers do is important. I feel that I’ve helped a lot of children, just as other teachers have also done.

    I agree that meekness is not weakness, but it potentially could be if a person is incapable of standing up for himself/herself. Abusers sometimes target people who are meek. On the other hand, someone can appear to be meek on the outside and have lots of inner strength.

    This was a well written post and informative. Meekness is indeed not weakness. Meekness is a positive attitude towards people and it’s also defined as a sign of respect towards people.
    I’m yet to see a meek person who’s not respectful
