Meekness = Weakness? Naw! – See this | AWAYION BEAUTY

Hi, Friends!

You’ve listened to multiple self-proclaimed luminaries on the matter of meekness — and some claim this trait equals weakness.

But you know the meek shall inherit the earth – and any display of weakness results in failure of this promise.

Confused? I understand. 

So what is femmine meekness?

In this post, discover why meekness does not equal weakness. Because every girl in Christ should know meekness equals femmine strength.

Super Awesome Side Note: Before we start, understand we will not claim contested truths. And we will refrain from falling into the trap of “teaching man-made ideas as commands from the Creator.”

Out of respect for believers, we will simply acknowledge the multiplicity of views on this subject (the keyword is “acknowledge” and not agree). That said, this is a non-exhaustive list. So use this list to do further research.

Super Psst… the big secret I’ve been hinting around about on social media for a year now has finally been revealed… (its also why I have been MIA for a bit… and why I will be MIA in the future… hmm.) Read on after this post for the juicy details.

TL: DR A quick post glance:

  1. Meekness is… ?
  2. Deborah
  3. Queen Esther

Sound juicy? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start.

1. Meekness is… ?

Meekness

For starters, an ancient definition of “meek” — is justice delivered perfectly. In context, the ancients understood it as “knowing the proper time to draw your sword to deliver justice.” Which places a different light upon knowing, “the meek shall inherit the earth.” Observing a modern spin, Dictionary.com definition of “meek” is — “humbly patient under provocation from others, compliant, gentle, kind.”

If you contrast the two definitions you will see why most modern women are troubled by the true meaning of meekness. But if you are an avid reader of The Living Word — you have the truth — because you have discovered women who embody the ancient definition of meekness.

At that, let’s look at a few meek women.

2. Deborah

Our first meek woman was a prophetess of our Creator and the God of the Israelites, the fourth Judge of pre-monarchic Israel and the only female judge mentioned in The Living Word.

Scholars contend the phrase, “a woman of Lappidot”, as translated from biblical Hebrew denotes her marital status as the wife of Lappidot, or “Lappidoth” as listed in many translations. The meaning of “lappid” translates as “torch” or “lightning”, thus the phrase, “woman of Lappidot” could reference Deborah as a “fiery woman.”

Now, did you read about meekness being “fiery” in the modern Dictionary.com definition? Hmm?

Long story short, Deborah told Barak, an Israelite general from Kedesh in Naphtali, that our Creator commanded him to lead an assault against the forces of Jabin king of Canaan and his military commander Sisera. But a hesitant Barak couldn’t carry out those orders.

At that, Deborah brazenly told Barak a woman would get the glory instead of him. Quite a bold, fiery statement from a woman during antiquity, eh? Yet, this makes Deborah fit the ancient definition of meekness. Fancy, huh?

Research  Judges 4

3. Queen Esther

Our meek lady is Queen Esther of Persia. This well-known beauty experienced a life or death scenario. She faced sudden death because she approached the king of Persia (her husband) for his mercy towards the Hebrew people. Instead of manipulation tactics, Esther used meekness and persuasion — while facing death — for the safety of her people.

Esther persuaded her husband, the Persian king, by using her meekness, beauty, and these words, “If I have found favor with you, Your Majesty, and if it pleases you, grant me my life — this is my petition. And spare my people—this is my request… ”

At that, Esther made her petition to the King — knowing her appeal could either end her — or save her people. Another daring act made by a woman during antiquity, eh? Yet, this act of bravery makes Esther fit the ancient definition of meekness. Special, huh?

Research   The Book of Esther

Seems from looking at both women — meekness does not equal weakness. That said, please understand the ancient meaning of meekness does not give license to wretchedness.
