Meekness

So I preached on meekness yesterday in both the main services at church. Afterwards, I went up to the guy preaching next week and I said, "I just gave the most insane sermon. It was the best thing anyone has ever heard. Good luck following that up buddy!"

I was just kidding around, but what was funny was that I really was trying to do an awesome job so that people would learn, but also on some more hidden level because I want to look good doing what I do best. Teaching on a stage in front of lots of people is a head trip.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. How opposite is that to what my human nature thinks? Jesus is cool.

Two gals in my Bible study on Tuesday were talking about how much your message challenged them. You were used.
