What does the word meek really mean? What does it mean in the Bible? How has the meaning changed?
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.Matthew 11:28-29
Jesus was meek but he also whipped the money changers from the Temple. He was no snowflake, cowering in submission. He was strong.
And in the Old Testament we read:
Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.Numbers 12:3
But Moses is the guy that challenged the ruler of the world, the Pharaoh of Egypt and lead 6 million captives, children of Israel, out of the system into the promised land. He endured 40 years in the wilderness and then just as they were to enter he was not permitted to go in.
