Humility, gentleness, meekness…not popular words in a world where everyone has an opinion and thinks that opinion should be heard by everyone. But what does it mean to be humble, gentle, meek? Why would we want to even try to be those things when being those very things could get you “run over” in today’s world? Jesus says that one of the keys to true happiness, to be more than just #BLESSED, is to embrace humility.
As Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount, describing what it looks like to follow Him and live for Him, He began with the secret of happiness...of living a blessed life. It wasn’t at all what people then or now would expect. Happiness is not a by-product of external circumstances. It comes instead from a right relationship to God.
