An essential characteristic of someone who wants to follow Jesus Christ and call themselves a Christian is meekness. When we think of meekness, it truly is a rare quality in this world. Meekness is a death blow to self and to our pride. Meekness is forgiving those who hurt us. In short, meekness is being like the Lord Jesus Christ.
