What Is Meekness In The Bible

Meekness in the Bible means being submissive as opposed to dominating, which is professed by many gurus in the present times.

Meekness does not mean tolerating evil. It means to be willing to submit to the reasonable will of others without showing resistance. It has a direct implication on pleasing others by acknowledging their thoughts.

An example of a meek person is Jesus Christ himself, who submitted to the will of the Father and endured suffering to redeem humankind from the original sin.
