Being Meek and Being Blessed

Meekness means having a heart that is humbled and peaceful.

Children are meek. This is why the Lord says, ‘If you do not become as children, you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven’  (cf. Matt. 18:3). 

A proud person is never satisfied; everything bothers him, and he follows his own will. We must be obedient to the will of God in order to learn humility and meekness while we are still in this life, while there is still time. A heart that is full of love thinks not of itself, but of others. It prays for all living things and for the whole world.”    (Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica, Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives, p 89)
