Mapalad ang mga mapagkumbaba, sapagkat mamanahin nila ang daigdig.

Mateo 5:5

Madalas marinig ni Tess pagalitan ng kanyang Tita Lyn si Mommy Medy. “Ikaw kasi Medy, dapat lumalaban ka. Kaya lagi kang nabibiktima. Kung ako iyan, di ko palalampasin iyan!” Mula noon, naisip ni Tess na weak ang nanay niya. Pero habang tumatagal, napapansin niya na parang mas masaya si Mommy Medy. More friends. Lesser worries. Si Lyn naman, parang laging galit sa mundo. Apparently, Lyn cuts ties with people when they offend her. Medy, on the other hand, listens and tries to understand them.

Sabi sa Bible, ang mapagpakumbaba ay magmamana ng daigdig (Mateo 5:5). Medy still has her friends and loved ones because she kept silent trying to understand them. Kaya naman mas payapa ang buhay niya. Hindi ba doon pa lang, maituturing na malaking kayamanan na dito sa mundo ang natanggap niya mula sa Panginoon?

Minsan gaya ni Lyn, ang dami nating nasasabi once ma-offend tayo ng iba. Sometimes, we even act on revenge, thinking na dapat matuto iyong offender natin. But the Bible tells us to be meek. At tulad ni Tess, napagkakamalan nating kahinaan ang pagpapakumbaba. Na kapag hindi tayo pumatol ay nagpapaapi na tayo. Ang totoo, meekness is a controlled strength.

Pero hindi naman ibig sabihin ng pagiging meek is that we have lost our voices. Tulad ni Jesus when He was falsely accused before Pilate, sinagot Niya ang mga tanong sa Kanya in truth but He never got angry with Pilate. Bukod sa best example na si Jesus on meekness, Siya rin ang makapagbibigay sa atin nito.
