When Jesus blesses the meek, he puts us in a tight spot. Not because we believe the meek shouldn’t be blessed, but because meekness is so rarely rewarded in our culture. Very few of us, therefore, aspire to be meek. Nor do we usually encourage such a trait in our children. Yet at the same time, we say we want to become more like Christ, who described himself as meek. What gives?

Blessed are the Littles
