Beatitudes, Part 4: Meek Isn't Weak (Blessed are the Meek)

Beatitudes, Part 4: Meek Isn’t Weak (Blessed are the Meek)

We are focused on Matthew 5.5 this week and learning about how the gentle (meek!) are blessed.  Keep in mind though, the word ‘gentle’ isn’t necessarily the best translation of the word ‘Praupathia’ (from the Greek root word ‘praus’).  Listen and discover the differences and how meekness reflects a greater, quiet strength.
