“I therefore the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Eph. 4:2
“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you you.” Eph. 4:32
Wow… I have to say this was a very convicting set of verses to write about.
Really, the more I read, memorized, and prayed about Eph. 4:2 & 32, the more I realized how little I actually demonstrate or even comprehend all that they speak of.
In recent years, Meekness was an area that I often prayed about: asking God to show me what exactly meekness was in its practical application. What I really wanted to know though was “What does a spirit of Meekness look like in a dispute or serious conflict?”.
This may seem like a question with an obvious answer, but to me it was puzzling.
