The meek.In the original Greek language, meekness meant to be in total submission to a higher command. It is the mourning of Matthew 5:4 that leads us to surrender completely to God’s Word and will.
They shall inherit.Inheritance is not equal to entering eternal life. Salvation is a free gift (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9). Inheritance is for those who are
sons of God (Gal. 3:26, 29; 4:6-7). All believers share in the inheritance (1 Pet. 1:4-5), but those who grow and serve have a greater portion (Col. 3:24; Heb. 6:12; see also Rom. 8:16-17).
