“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5).
When Jesus preached to the crowds, it was no accident that He repeated this promise from the Old Testament. Being meek doesn’t mean being weak—in this case, it means willingly accepting God’s plan for us. Submitting to His will often means going against what the world tells us is right and wrong. That takes a special kind of strength and courage only found with God.
