For They Shall Inherit The Earth,

At first glance it would be easy to say that it sounds
silly that the meek would have such power. We are
aware the world is full of wolves and those who are
bent on taking advantage of us. But I believe that
by being humble and surrendering to the things of
God, in the end will make the world powerful. It's
hard to see of course but if we really think about the
Gospels and the rest of scriptures, everything there
is leading us to peace and harmony. So if even one
person can be meek and inspire another and then
another and so on, think of how the world would be.
Of course this is a pie in the sky imagination but in
a way, I believe that is Jesus was aiming for. At
this point that ideal is unimaginable. But maybe
after all the wars are done, that's the way it will be.

unimaginable here with these bodies of sin but isn’t that what it will be like in heaven? We have been given the ministry of reconciliation. Meekness is faith in the Lord working all things for good and that He is doing just that.

On this earth, we have to strive for perfection. Even when
we know we will never achieve it. Still that should never
keep us stop trying. In heaven, we will be perfect. Thanks
