Meekness is not weakness or timidity; it is power that is kept under control. Jesus had been given all power by the Father, yet he said, "I am meek and lowly in heart." And He is the one who washed the disciples' feet.

The Beatitude "Blessed are those who mourn" reminds us of the story of the Pharisee and the tax collector. The Pharisee pridefully exalted himself. But the tax collector mourned over his sins, and he was forgiven.

When Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit," he was describing the right attitude toward our own righteousness. To be poor in spirit is to recognize that you are spiritually bankrupt before God.

Paul commended the Philippians because, although they weren't with him on the mission field, they shared in his work by their sacrificial giving to support him. He called their generosity "a sweet--smelling aroma... well pleasing to God."
