We have sort of hit on this characteristic of the Fruit of the Spirit already. It is very much related to goodness. They are both done through action but one is a choice to be good the other is a choice to be submissive. There is a good reason to be submissive at times in order to not put yourself above others.

How will we all strive to become meek? Will it be something that we all must do? It is something that we as fathers have to be willing to explore. Fathers Lets strive to be meek.
