Billy Graham Daily Devotional Messages September 12, 2017
Topic: Be Meek – Be Happy
Key Verse: Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. – Matthew 5:5
MESSAGE: In His characteristic way Jesus was saying something quite shocking and revolutionary to His listener with these words, “Happy are the meek.” He was saying something quite the opposite of our modern concept of the way to happiness.

We say, “Happy are the clever, for they shall inherit the admiration of their friends”; “Happy are the aggressive, for they shall inherit a career”; “Happy are the rich, for they shall inherit a world of friends and a house full of modern gadgets.”
Jesus did not say, “Be meek and you shall inherit the earth.” He, more than anyone else, knew that meekness was a gift of God, a result of rebirth. Jesus was not issuing a command in this Beatitude nor saying, “You ought to be meek, that is the way to live.” No! He was saying that if we want to find the secret of happiness, that if we want to enjoy living, then “meekness” is a basic key.
Is it wrong to be proud of your accomplishments? Billy Graham answers.
Prayer for the day: May I truly reflect Your meekness in my life, Lord.
