How do you win a crying, scared two-year old child?  Wrong answer: with POWER and command, "STOP CRYING!" Right answer: with meekness.  You still are the adult in the room, you have 'infinite' power.  But you make yourself approachable.  You have both the power to help, but the gentleness to make the assistance receivable.  Welcome to the beatitude: Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.It is exactly how Jesus describes is core heart DNA:  I am gentle (meek) and lowly of heart.  It is the same concept and even the same word in the greek.He wants US to be MEEK.  Maybe in our words.  Maybe in our service. Maybe in our driving. Maybe in our attitude. Maybe in our actions. It is the assured posture of abundant strength that is expressed in a winsome way.  May it be said of us, "They had the SUPERPOWER of MEEKNESS."I am so glad you read today.  It is a 7 minute daily podcast that I'd meekly encourage you to listen to.  Subscribe on your favorite podcast directory.  Or write at bewithme.us@gmail.com

Of all the things that Jesus ever said, some of his most quoted statements are found in the Sermon on the Mount. And while these beautiful statements may seem simple on the surface, there is a deep richness and beauty in them that is more profound than we initially realize. As we look at the third blessing today, we discover that "the glory that we seek is given to the meek."

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. (Galatians 5:22-24) 138 Christians, oh, you must have a personal relationship to God. In order to be a son of God, you must become relation to God. He must be your Father, in order for you to be His son. And only His sons and daughters are saved, not the members of a church, but sons and daughters. There's only one thing that will produce that, that's the new Birth. The new Birth is the only thing that will produce relationship to God. That right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Sons and daughters. Then when this takes place, then the men… 139 Here's the question I want to get to you. The man says, “What do we do then after we been born again?” So many ask me that question. “What should I do then, Brother Branham?” If you are born again, your entire nature is changed. You are dead to the things you once thought. 140 “Well,” you say, “Brother Branham, when I joined church, I got that.” Well, then, when, God said, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He still heals the sick. He still shows vision.” “But, Brother Branham, my church!” Now, you're not born again. See? You can't be; for, if the very God, if His Life is in you, like the…you are in…the life of your father, and, if the very Life of God is in you, the very Spirit that was in Christ, in you, how can the Spirit live in Jesus Christ and write This, and then come back down in you and deny That? See? Can't do it. It'll punctuate every Word to be so. 141 Then, if you say, “Well, I'm a good member of the church,” that don't have one thing to do with It. I know the heathen. Down in Africa, amongst my dark brethren down there, I find the morals of them people higher than—than ninety percent of the American people. Why, in some of the tribes there, if a young girl is not married till she's a certain age, or when she's a certain size and no one has taken her yet, they know there's something wrong. They excommunicate her. She take off tribal paint, and she goes to the city, then she just becomes a renegade. And when she's married, she's tested for her virginity. If the little virgin veil is broke, then she has to tell who done it. And they kill them both, together. Wouldn't there be a lot of killing in America if that taken place? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] See? Then you call them heathens? Oh, my! They can come teach people, that call themselves church members, how to live clean. That's right. 142 Never found one case of venereal in the whole trip through South Africa. They don't have such a thing. There you are. See? It's just our own dirty filthy ways, as white people. That's right. Got away from God. 143 When this takes place, the thing you'll do then, you'll find out that the Spirit that comes in you, from the new Birth, you will believe and do everything that God says in His Word is for you to do. And everything that the Bible quotes for you to do, you'll punctuate it with an “amen.” And you'll not stop, day and night, until you receive it. That's right. That's right. And in all this time, you'll certainly, above everything, bear the fruit of the Spirit. 144 You say, “Will I speak with tongues?” You might do that, and you might not. “Will I shout?” You might do that. You might not. 63-0630e - "Is Your Life Worthy Of The Gospel?" Rev.

You can't just chatter about patience. If patience moderates our sorrows, then it's ultimately a deeper spiritual virtue that can't be instrumentalized to feel better—it's more deeply connected to a joy and hope that recognizes to what and to whom we are in demand, to whom we're responsible, brings closer attention to the present moment, and acknowledges our limitations and lack of control. In this episode, Ryan McAnnally-Linz and Evan Rosa review and reflect on the six episodes that made up our series on patience: why it's so hard, what's good about it, and how we might cultivate it.These six episodes explored patience in its theological, ethical, and psychological context, offering cultural and social diagnosis of our modern predicament with patience, defining the virtue in its divine and human contexts, and then considering the practical cultivation of patience as a way of life.This series featured interviews with Andrew Root (Luther Seminary), Kathryn Tanner (Yale Divinity School), Paul Dafydd Jones (University of Virginia), Adam Eitel (Yale Divinity School), Sarah Schnitker (Baylor University), and Tish Harrison Warren (priest, author, and New York Times columnist).Show NotesModerating sorrowsJames 5:7: "Be patient therefore beloved until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts. For the coming of the Lord is near."The patient way to make a s'moreAn unexpected s'mores tutorialKairos vs Chronos: often overdone, it applies when you're talking about patience.Time with kids at bed time is incommensurate with work productivity time; comparing the two is a category mistake."One of the things that these conversations about patients had had started to clue me into was the importance of being attuned to the proper activity or thing for which this time is—a less uniform account of time that says for instance, you know, the bedtime routine with my children that time is for that. And so thinking of it as somehow commensurate with work productivity time would be a category mistake of a sort. It would be an unfaithfulness. And so that impatience derives from a lack of attentiveness to the temporal texture of our lives in really relation to God." (Ryan)There can be "patient hurry"Patience is like audio compression: it sets a threshold that is sensitive to the sorrow in our life and moderates or mitigates it.Episode summariesPatience Part 1, Andy Root: "To say that I'm busy is to indicate that I'm in demand."Feeling busy = feeling importantRecognitionAttending to the present, accepting a different form of "being in demand."Patience Part 2, Kathy Tanner: "There's no profit in waiting."Connecting economy to patience."Something has to hold firm in order for you to take risks."Stability and the steadfast love of God.Patience Part 3, Paul Dafydd Jones: "The Psalms of lament and complaint can get, as we know, incredibly dark, incredibly bleak. One operation of divine patience could be that God gives ancient Israel the time and space to accuse God. God is patient with expressions of trauma, expressions of guilt, expressions of deep anguish. And God is so patient with them that they get included in the Canon. Like, some of the most powerful, skeptical, doubtful, angry moments are found in the Psalms. So God's letting be at this moment and letting happen includes within it God's honoring of grief and trauma, such that those moments become part of the scriptures."Psalms of complaintPsychologist Julie Exline on anger with GodAnger with God is consistent with patiencePatience Part 4, Adam Eitel: "Moderating sorrow is not to suppress it or develop an affected callousness or disenchanted, jaded relation to the things one really loves."It's hard to chatter about patience.Patience and joyPatience Part 5, Sarah Schnitker: Identify, Imagine, and SyncNormativity and a truer cognitive reappraisal of one's emotional statePatience Part 6, Tish Harrison Warren: "God intended man to have all good, but in his, God's, time and therefore all disobedience, all sin consists essentially in breaking out of time. Hence the restoration of order by the Son of God had to be the annulment of that premature snatching at knowledge, the beating down of the hand, outstretched toward eternity, the repentant return from a false, swift transfer of eternity to a true, slow confinement in time. Hence the importance of patience in the New Testament, which becomes the basic constituent of Christianity. More central, even the humility, the power to wait, to persevere, to hold out, to endure to the end, not to transcend one's own limitations, not to force issues by playing the hero or the titan, but to practice the virtue that lies beyond heroism: the meekness of the Lamb which is led."Control and Meekness: Meekness is controlled strengthProduction NotesThis podcast featured Ryan McAnnally-Linz and Evan RosaEdited and Produced by Evan RosaHosted by Evan RosaProduction Assistance by Martin Chan & Nathan JowersA Production of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture at Yale Divinity School https://faith.yale.edu/aboutSupport For the Life of the World podcast by giving to the Yale Center for Faith & Culture: https://faith.yale.edu/givePart 1 Show Notes: Andrew RootDoubling down and the temptation to make up for lost timeHartmut Rosa and Modernity as AccelerationAcceleration across three categories: technology, social change, and pace of life"Decay rate” is accelerating—we can sense that things get old and obsolete much faster (e.g., phones, computers)Riding the wave of accelerated social change"We've become enamored with gadgets and time-saving technologies."“Getting more actions within units of time"Multi-taskingExpectations and waiting as an attack on the self"Waiting feels like a moral failure."Give yourself a break; people are under a huge amount of guilt that they're not using their time or curating the self they could have."You're screwing up my flow here, man."When I'm feeling the acceleration of time: “Get the bleep out of my way.

We want to think in terms of assurance. And we want that assurance to be comforting in a fairly quick-fire away. I think theologians have the task of exposing that as an ersatz hope and insisting that faith includes complexity. It involves lingering over ambiguity. Trying to fit together. multi-dimensional beliefs that are this lattice work—none of which can be reduced to a pithy, marketing quip.""Theologians need to be patient in order to honor the complexity of Christian faith. ... That's called intellectual responsibility.""Christianity is not going to cease to be weaponized by snake-oil salespeople."Staying with complexity and ambiguity"The capacity to tell the truth is in short supply.""Human beings are called to respond to God's patience. Human beings are called to make good on God's patience. The covenant of grace, which is fulfilled in Christ and which is animated by the spirit, makes that a possibility. It's not an easy possibility of real life. I mean, not just because of sin and finitude, but because of the complexities of the world that we live in. But learning how to respond to God's patience, both through forms of waiting, through forms of activity, and sometimes through moments of intemperate resistance is I think at the heart of Christian life.""People should not get in the way of human flourishing ... brought about by the empowering patience of the Holy Spirit. ... That's a gospel moment. That's a kairos moment."Part 4 Show Notes: Adam EitelThe context for Thomas Aquinas and his friars"The friars are on the verge of being canceled."What is a virtue? "To have them is to have a kind of excellence and to be able to do excellent things."Where does patience fit in the virtues?Matter and ObjectThe matter of a virtue is the thing it's about, and the matter of patience is sorrow.Sorrow can have right or wrong objects and can be excessive or deficient.Sorrow is elicited by evil, that is, the diminishment of good.Patience is a moderating virtue for the passions, similar to courage.Patience is connected to fortitude or courage in moderating our response to "the saddest things.""Patience moderates or constrains sorrow, so that it doesn't go beyond its proper limit. When we become too absorbed in trouble or woe, alot of other things start to go wrong. That's what Gregory the Great called patience the guardian of the virtues. .... deteriorate." (or to ... guardian of the virtues in that sense.")What does it feel like to be patient on this account?You can't experience patience without experiencing joy."Joy is the antithesis of sorrow. Its remedy."Remedies: Take a bath, go to sleep, drink some wine, talk to a friend ... and at the top of the list is contemplation of God.Contemplation for Aquinas: prayer, chanting psalms, drawing one's mind to the presence of God.Experientia Dei—taste and see"This is scandalous to most virtue theorists ... but you can't have patience, or at least not much of it, without contemplation.""Moderating sorrow is not to suppress it or develop an affected callousness or disenchanted, jaded relation to the things one really loves.""Patience never means ignoring or turning away from the thing that's genuinely sorrowful."Diminishment of sorrow by nesting it among the many other goods.Modulate one's understanding of the thing that's sorrowful.The sorrow of losing a childYou can only write about it from inside of it.What is it?

Patience is not suppression; it begins with attention and noticing—identifying what's going on.Step 2: Cognitive reappraisal: one of the most effective ways to regulate our emotions. Think about your own emotions from another person's perspective, or in light of the bigger picture. Take each particular situation and reappraise it.Find benefits. Turn a curse into a blessing. Find opportunities.Step 3: Sync with your purpose. Create a narrative that supports the meaning of suffering. For many this is religious faithReappraising cognitive reappraisal: How convinced do you have to be? You'd have to find something with “epistemic teeth”—is this something you can rationally endorse and know, and can you feel it?Combining patience and gratitude practices, allowing for multiple emotions at once, and reimagining and reappraising one's life within your understanding of purpose and meaning.Provide psychological distance to attenuate emotional response.The existential relevance of faith for patience; theological background of patiencePatience and a life worth livingLove, the unity of the virtues, and "the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation" (2 Peter 3)Part 6 Show Notes: Tish Harrison Warren"Part of becoming more patient is noticing how impatient you are. ...

Humility and meekness can be two of the most challenging virtues to display but they are two of the most impacting. If you struggle with humility, we'll see how what we're grasping on to is often what's keeping us from a humble posture. And if you've ever mistook meekness for weakness, it's anything but. Meekness is power under control. It takes a great deal of strength to exhibit this particular virtue which is why it's one of my favorites in Paul's list. This series will impact our relationships, everyone from family members, friends, co-workers, people we love, even those who have hurt us. We'll be working our way through Colossians 3:12-15 where Paul talks about putting on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, along with forgiveness, love, gratitude, and peace.

"We are creatures in time."Today, the Reverend Tish Harrison Warren explores patience as spiritual formation. She's an Anglican priest and author of Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life, which was Christianity Today's 2018 Book of the Year, and Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work, or Watch, or Weep. She recently started a weekly newsletter on faith in private and public life for The New York Times.She reflects on the human demand for control in both ordinary and extraordinary life events, from the line at the supermarket to the cancer ward; the recognition of human vulnerability and just hating the fact that we can't control what happens next; the temptation to break out of time; and the difficult balance between the urgent need for justice and the acceptance of our human and societal limits. The entire conversation is illuminated by the beauty of what Hans Urs Von Balthasar calls “the meekness of the Lamb which is led.”Part 6 of a 6-episode series on Patience, hosted by Ryan McAnnally-Linz.About Tish Harrison WarrenTish Harrison Warren is a priest in the Anglican Church in North America. She is the author of Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life, which was Christianity Today's 2018 Book of the Year, and Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work, or Watch, or Weep. She has worked in ministry settings for over a decade as a campus minister with InterVarsity Graduate and Faculty Ministries, as an associate rector, and with addicts and those in poverty through various churches and non-profit organizations. Currently, she is Writer in Residence at Resurrection South Austin. She is a monthly columnist with Christianity Today, and her articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Religion News Service, Christianity Today, Comment Magazine, The Point Magazine, and elsewhere. She is a founding member of The Pelican Project and a Senior Fellow with the Trinity Forum. She lives with her husband and three children in the Austin, Texas area.Show Notes"Part of becoming more patient is noticing how impatient you are. ... It's so not-linear."Kids will slow you down and expose your impatiencePatience often looks like other things—"it looks like contentment, it looks like trust, it looks like endurance."Patience and humility: "We are not the President of the United States. Things can go on without us.""Our entire life is lived in a posture of waiting."Waiting for the eschaton, the return of Christ, and things set rightThe illusion of control—James 4:13-14Has Urs Von Balthasar: "God intended man to have all good, but in his, God's, time and therefore all disobedience, all sin consists essentially in breaking out of time. Hence the restoration of order by the Son of God had to be the annulment of that premature snatching at knowledge, the beating down of the hand, outstretched toward eternity, the repentant return from a false, swift transfer of eternity to a true, slow confinement in time. Hence the importance of patience in the New Testament, which becomes the basic constituent of Christianity. More central, even the humility, the power to wait, to persevere, to hold out, to endure to the end, not to transcend one's own limitations, not to force issues by playing the hero or the titan, but to practice the virtue that lies beyond heroism: the meekness of the Lamb which is led.""We are creatures in time."Robert Wilken: "singular mark of patience is hope"Activism and patience together"Patience can get a bad rap, that Christians are just wanting to become bovine."Patience but not quietism, a long wait but not gradualismThe ultimate need to discern the momentClarence Jordan and Martin Luther King Jr.The practices of discernment for individuals and communitiesSocial media trains us to be impatientThe meaning of urgent change is changingInternet advocacy and a connected world makes us less patient people"It takes real work to slow down and listen to another person's perspective, especially if you disagree with them."We often don't have the patience to even understand someone else.Real conversations with real peopleSilence, solitude"Having a body requires an enormous amount of patience.""My kids are so slow. They're the one's teaching me to be patient!"Little hardships of boredom and discomfort"Life with a body and life with real people inevitably involves patience.""Patience is something we learn our way out of through privilege and through being, you know, important adults."Production NotesThis podcast featured priest and author the Reverend Tish Harrison Warren and theologian Ryan McAnnally-LinzEdited and Produced by Evan RosaHosted by Evan RosaProduction Assistance by Martin Chan & Nathan JowersA Production of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture at Yale Divinity School https://faith.yale.edu/aboutSupport For the Life of the World podcast by giving to the Yale Center for Faith & Culture: https://faith.yale.edu/give

Have you worked to develop your leadership? Leadership is an important quality. People often want to be the leader, whether that is being the captain of the team, the president of the class, the manager in business or leading in the community. Leadership is also in demand. Companies and organizations spend a lot of time and money developing leadership in employees. So, people work on many things to improve their leadership. They learn to organize themselves, manage a project, read a budget and speak in public.  They also pay attention to the way they dress, how to meet others and shake hands, and how to mingle and converse in informal gatherings. But, would you work on meekness in order to become a better leader? One of the misconceptions people have is that leaders are not meek. Brett Simmons believes that meekness is one of the most undervalued virtues of leadership. He is a consultant that teaches leadership in college MBA courses. He approaches the virtue from a secular standpoint, so some of his concepts don't always align with the fruit of the Spirit. But I think he is right when he says, "Meekness is my response to your initiatives directed at me."* In other words, it is the ability to absorb and dissipate what another thrusts at you. When others are irritating or harsh, meekness responds correctly, but not harshly, to produce positive results. If you are a leader, or developing leadership skills, remember to focus on meekness. *Brett L. Simmons, "Strong Meekness: An Undervalued Virtue Of Leadership," August 21, 2011, http://www.bretlsimmons.com/2011-08/strong-meekness-an-undervalued-virtue-of-leadership/ Please provide feedback and suggestions at: https://www.sparkingfaith.com/feedback/ Bumper music “Landing Place” performed by Mark July, used under license from Shutterstock.

In this episode, OCF Communications Intern Joshua Schumacher interviews MAJ Lynda Johnson, USA (Ret.). Who am I? That was the big question behind the article that I wrote for COMMAND magazine in the fall of 2020. The article, which focused on the topic of identity, briefly included the story of Lynda Johnson and how her identity was shaken after she was told she couldn't run anymore unless she wanted to risk more damage to her health. As it turns out, there is a whole lot more to her story than what we covered in COMMAND. Today, you'll hear both her life story and the story of how she found her identity in Christ as she shares her testimony of military life at the intersection of faith, family, and profession. As you listen to Lynda's story, here are four questions to consider: Lacking her Christ-centered identity, Lynda's self-described work ethic was a “dream for bosses” but a “nightmare for subordinates and peers.” How would those you lead describe your treatment of them? What do you think Lynda means when it comes to identifying in Christ that “I longer see myself as the star of my movie that God had already seen before”? “Embracing powerlessness in self” is an important aspect of developing our identity in Christ. How does the restraint of our power in our professional, personal, and societal relationships allow others to benefit? Meekness is fully grasping God's grace, to receive what we're undeserving of, such as eternal life. How does having our identity in Christ help us model the meekness He demonstrated in a world that scorns meekness as weakness? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Ephesians 4:1-6 In John 17, Jesus prayed that “…they all may be one”.  He was of course referring to the true Church - those who would come to believe in Him through the Word of the Apostles.  This reality has been made possible via the new birth.  When one is born again of the Spirit of God, they are grafted into the spiritual Body of Jesus Christ.  This is a concrete fact that cannot be disputed. Yet, the great challenge that faces every one of us who names the name of Jesus Christ, is the practical outworking of this reality in a functional, living experience. How does the Body of Christ bring the abstract in line with the concrete?  All is brought to light in God's precious Word!

In this series on the 9 Fruits of the Spirit, we will study the fruit of meekness. Let's face it; raw human nature wants little to do with humility or meekness. Yahshua said we must become servants to one another if we'll be blessed in the Kingdom. This is the reason Yahweh's people must strive to remove our natural pride and replace it with unnatural humility.

Being a Christian takes boldness. You’re telling mankind that all are sinful and your only hope is Christ. But the believer is also to be a person of gentleness and meekness. In this message, Ben Winslett speaks to these two traits. Gentleness and Meekness to All (download link)
