Be-Atitudes Week 3
I am over the moon with the study of the Be-atitudes. God is opening my eyes to truths from His word which are proving to be convicting and transforming. I want to experience God’s perfect plan for happiness and I know that won’t happen in my current state. It happens as I allow God to change me from the inside out.
This week’s lesson is on meekness and wow, oh wow…this one got me. Meek–not a adjective I use to describe myself if I’m completely honest. Yet, I remember meeting a woman in my early twenties who I could describe only as “gentle.” She was a pastor’s wife and a chaplain for the company where I worked. I realized at the time, I wanted to be like her! What a worthy venture but a misguided plan. Only as I’ve sought after God has my heart begun to take on traits of meekness. There is still a LOOOOONG way to go but thank God for grace.
I can’t wait to hear how God speaks to your heart. Would you share with me in the comments how God is moving and shaping you?

DISCUSSION: What insights have you gained about meekness this week?
I am oddly surprised at how much I’ve correlated weakness and meekness without really realizing it. This particular point has hopefully be very helpful to me, if only in reconsidering what it really means at this point.
DISCUSSION: How is meekness towards God demonstrated in a person’s behavior?
DISCUSSION: What is the relationship of meekness to weakness? If we are meek, are we doormats? Explain.
When I click on the Video 2 handout, I get the first handout again. Is anyone else able to get the sheet with the oxen?
Let me look into it…thanks for pointing it out!
It is fixed now! Sorry about that!
I’m sorry that I am blinded to the link for discovering the different attributes of God according the the Bible (wk3 vid1 reflection q3). Can you place it in comments or e-mail it to me please?
Hey! I just added it to the post. I’m not sure what happened but I know that I forgot to add the link to the lesson the first time. Sorry about that.
