When my parents died several years ago they left my five siblings and I an inheritance, divided up equally among us For my husband and I it was a fairly substantial sum yet in a millionaire’s eyes it would be considered a mere drop in the proverbial bucket. Yet the thought of inheriting the Earth, (think about it, THE EARTH), even to a billionaire it would be more than mind blowing!
If you think about it, “owning” the earth is what nations fight over, why wars are declared. Greedy men and women work very hard and with whatever means it takes in order to get as big a chunk of this planet as they can without going to jail first. Ecologists claim it for their mother nature and parents for their children and those to follow after. This revolving sphere is mishandled by those who seek its hidden treasures, sought after by the power hungry and misguided religious zealots without at time any regard for human life. A ball of confusion staggering like a drunken man yet one day promised to be the inheritance of the saints of God “reformed” by His own nail scarred hands.
Earth. In the Father’s will; designated property to those who are in fact not easily provoked to anger; who patiently bear, and put up with injuries and affronts. Those in the race and those who will walk carrying themselves courteously and affably to all, the elect through the blood of the Lamb who have the meanest thoughts of themselves, and the best of others. They are those who envy not the gifts and graces of other men and willing to be instructed and admonished by even the meanest of the saints, They quietly submit to the will of God in adverse dispensations of providence; and ascribe all they have, and are, to the grace of God.
For all who define “meek” as “weak” are surely mistaken. It takes a strong man or women (in the Lord) to possess this quality and one day soon, to possess the Earth.
