Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth. – Matthew 5:5

Dear Jesus,

I know you bless hard work and determination but I hear what you are telling me here too.  You want me to be meek, gentle, loving and humble much more than you want me to succeed.  Then you can give me what I so ardently pursued as a gift instead of a wage.  Then, I will be grateful instead of prideful.  Then I will share instead of horde.  Oh Jesus, make me meek.  Help me to see the difference between meekness and weakness.  Make me strong in meekness and faith.  AMEN

God loves to give us many blessings, especially when he sees that we will cherish it as a gift from his heart and not a payment.
