Perhaps the culture of traffic cooperation in Nairobi, Kenya has something to teach us today. Nairobi is a city of 4.5 million people. Everybody is going somewhere. You'd think it would be "every man for himself" traffic-wise. Surprise. There is a posture there of cooperation, of kindness, of waving people in, of preference; in short, OF MEEKNESS. It is a wonder.
Similarly, James asks us to approach God the same way. As the MIRROR of revelation shows us things about ourselves, we are to receive it with the same heart. If the mirror show us toothpaste on our chin then we just have KNOWLEDGE. Meekness is the INTENT to do something about it. The DOING is the wiping the toothpaste off our chin. Meekness is the intent to turn knowledge into action. God wants all three out of us. Otherwise, we'd all be walking around with toothpaste on our chin.
