Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Earth.
(Which can also be read as blessings on the meek...).
Who are the meeK?
Gentleness or meekness is the opposite to self-assertiveness and self-interest. It stems from trust in God's goodness and control over the situation. The gentle person is not occupied with self at all. This is a work of the Holy Spirit, not of the human will (Gal 5:23).
The meek are those that are NOT arrogant and willful and mean-spirited, those that do not force themselves and their beliefs uponothers, those that put their love and trust in God.
Perhaps gentle would be a better word, certainly loving would be a god choice too.
