The meek shall inherit the earth. Why? Because a meek, or humble, person has a willingness to be taught by God. Meekness implies gentleness, not weakness. When a person is meek, he demonstrates his willingness to submit to God’s way of life, which will ultimately fill the earth. He learns to have faith in God rather than self, thereby demonstrating true strength of character. Pride is the opposite of humility and cannot produce the kind of character that God is building in us.
