Artist's Description

many people think aggressive personalities are strong, and that violence is strong, talking loud and blustery is strong, refusing honest friendly help is strong… i am not one of those people. these things feel like strength, especially to the person doing it, but usually end up hollow of accomplishment of any good end. aggression and violence usually destroy, strength will usually build. “the end does not justify the means” is an old adage i can’t even remember when i first heard it’s so far back in my life. i completely agree with this but even further think that the means we choose determine the ends we can accomplish. the bible say in galatians 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL.” (emphsis mine) and also in psalms 37:11 “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.” aggression and violence are natural and easy responses to life but it takes great strength to be self-controlled and gentle – meekness – in the face of life’s trials. many people believe that “the meek will inherit the earth” is a promise but i think it is a simple statement of fact. the meek will inherit the earth because they are the strongest survivors on it! so be self-controlled, gentle and STRONG!
