Blessed are the meek

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ~Mark 5:5 (CEB)

“We cannot see the world as God means it, save in proportion as our souls are meek. In meekness only are we its inheritors. Meekness alone makes the spiritual retina pure to receive God’s things as they are, mingling with them neither imperfection nor impurity of its own. A thing so beheld that it conveys to me the divine thought issuing in its form, is mine; by nothing but its mediation between God and my life can anything be mine.” ~From Life Essential by George MacDonald

Remove the scales from my eyes O Lord so that I may see the world as You would have me see it. Help me to accept Your will and to not force my way in things. Amen.
