We were too hungry to wait for dad for our #tyausunday
After learning about the definition of meekness today, it has now become one of my biggest goals in life, to become a person of meekness.
“The Christlike quality of meekness often is misunderstood in our contemporary world. Meekness is strong, not weak; active, not passive; courageous, not timid; restrained, not excessive; modest, not self-aggrandizing; and gracious, not brash. A meek person is not easily provoked, pretentious, or overbearing and readily acknowledges the accomplishments of others.
Whereas humility generally denotes dependence upon God and the constant need for His guidance and support, a distinguishing characteristic of meekness is a particular spiritual receptivity to learning both from the Holy Ghost and from people who may seem less capable, experienced, or educated, who may not hold important positions, or who otherwise may not appear to have much to contribute.” -Elder Bednar
I truly believe every person I will ever meet in this world has something they can teach me. I feel I’m always the one holding the mike on this platform so I want to turn the microphone over to you! I want to hear what’s in your heart, any wise words, your favorite quote, scripture, story, life lessons, anything! I want to learn from YOU! So don’t be shy, share with me what’s in your heart, I’d love to hear it.
I just left you a message on IG- wasn’t sure the best way to reach out to you. I love this post btw- ive been thinking a lot about meekness in the past and how Jesus chose to be meek, but he was never weak. i think its beautiful what you said about how there is always something to learn from people. I completely agree!
I saw your video on NExt end and i was inspired by the clothes you make, and more importantly by the clothing line that you hope to start one day. I started a clothing line to support orphans across the globe last year- felt like God was really calling me down this path. in the past few years my friends and i have raised enough money to build an orphanage in india and we have been supporting it and the children through fundraising efforts and through the clothing line… would love to see how we could possibly work together in the future! please email me if you’re interested! check out our website too:)
