,I've never quite understood one of the "Beatitudes" from the Sermon on the Mount, describing the "meek" as being blessed. In retrospect, I've seem to have spent most of my life developing a degree of independence. With that I have become proud of my accomplishments - hardly qualifying as meek to have been blessed with a lifetime of good fortune and good health. Recently however, dealing with some medical issues associated with aging, I'm beginning to develop new insight into the words of this statement.
The term "meek" in this biblical context is not intended to convey shyness or cowering behavior; but rather behavior fitting a spirit of quiet and obedient service, like that seen in a powerful horse that has been broken in and rendered gentle and compliant to serve it's Master.
So, I'm naming this recently completed drawing, "The Meek", hoping the image of a team of well trained work-horses turning their strength to plough a straight furrow under the guidance of their master, might give the viewer pause, and consider Matthew 5:5.
