On Pride and Meekness

To summarize our conversation to date, pride is enmity to god or fellow humans. Enmity to god is the failure to listen to the plan he has for us by listening to our thoughts instead. Enmity to fellow man is putting ourselves above others. The discussion leading up to these short definitions was long and laborious for I am slow and Pat is patient.

We left off with Pat's attempt to help me understand meekness.

Sean & Pat,

My favorite description/definition of meekness is bridled strength. The example that really help me grok the concept is: A father holds a child hand as they cross the street, he has the strength to easily crush the childs hand though he only exerts enough pressure to gently guide the child.
