It’s not until you squeeze a fruit, that one discovers its true taste! On the surface, the grapefruit and the orange both look alike, in size and in shape; however, upon closer inspection one quickly discovers that they’re radically opposite when it comes to taste! One is bitter, and the other is sweet. It’s not until we’re squeezed that we find out what’s really inside us, not least by the words that issue forth from our mouths. When you’re squeezed, what comes out? Is it bitter or is it sweet?
In this sermon, we learn the pattern of meekness from the perfect example of Jesus. May the Lord minister to each heart and use this sermon to provoke us onto perfection.
