Blessed Are The Meek

“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5

The true significance of the word “meek” in the Bible is a mental attitude for which there is no other single word available, and it is this mental attitude which is the secret of “prosperity” or success in prayer. It is a combination of open-mindedness, faith, in God, and the realization that the Will of God for us is a always something joyous and interesting and vital, and much better than anything we could think of for ourselves.

Wow! One if my favorite writers. I have learned so much from him.
