Feast 011 :: Power Under Control

Meekness is both completely misunderstood, and also under-emphasized as a beautiful quality to pursue. So let’s clear it up: Meekness is power under control. It is not synonymous with weakness (it just happens to rhyme with it so we get confused). In fact, it is fundamentally opposite of weakness. Meekness requires that one HAS power, but that they have their power under control, and that they use it promote, elevate, and help others around them – particularly those who have less power, influence, status, or prestige than they have.

Feast 010 :: Family-Together Spiritual Habits – Rest

Let me ask you something: What’s the complaint you hear most from your friends, peers, and even your own words, about the pace of your life right now? Do you hear people complaining they have too little to do? Almost never. We are a culture that is overworked, overstressed, over-scheduled, and over-committed. What we need – what would make a real difference that would turn so many of our problems on their head as a culture – is real, actual, regular rest.

But let’s be really honest: Christians are not the only people who believe serving is important, and not all forms of service are done with Christ in mind. This is where gospel-centered becomes an important qualifier in our Habit. The difference between gospel-centered service and service motivated by other things (guilt, duty, forced volunteerism) is that it has a higher purpose and a larger intention.
