Reflections on the words of Jesus (in red)

“Blessed…”

Matthew 5:5
“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”

Sometimes we use shyness as an excuse to isolate ourselves, but the Accuser uses isolation to twist us inward to create a destructive self-focus.

Humility is not the same as shyness and meekness is not an excuse to remove yourself from participation in the life God is showing you.

An honest appraisal of oneself, a truthful understanding of your relationship to others and the divine, the ability to say, “I was wrong and you were right”, a teachable attitude before God and others, a listener…

What will you gain? You will understand the true nature of yourself and your existence, you will know your identity, you will inherit your meaning and direction as you walk the path… All these things will be added to you.

Listen, love, learn and be blessed!
