But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
God shows a special love for those who are truly meek. He plans to give them the earth and all its abundance, along with peace, because He will be sure that they will not let His blessings go to their heads. They will humbly and thankfully strive to serve the great Creator God always.
Jesus reinforced this concept by repeating it in the Beatitudes in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:5; see “Blessed Are the Meek”). For more about the Beatitudes, see “Beatitudes: Keys to Real Happiness.”
