“Jesus said, ‘The meek shall inherit the Earth.’  What does that mean?”— Devin

This statement is from Jesus’ spiritual/moral insights, called “The Beatitudes” (Mt. 5:3-11), which are collected at the beginning of the passage of Scripture typically referred to as “The Sermon on the Mount” (Mt. 5-7). First, let’s look at the word “meek.” Then, we will examine two possible (though interrelated) meanings of “the Earth.”

“Meek” in the language of the New Testament does not mean weak, indecisive or timid. The “meek man” is not without conviction, passion or decisiveness. He has, however, brought some discipline to these aspects of his character and learned to trust in God, confident that God will guide and provide as needed. He humbles himself before God, acknowledging utter dependence on Him, bending his will before the greatness and grace of God. He emulates the very nature of Christ, the epitome of “power under control” (Mt. 11:29; II Cor. 10:1; Col. 3:12-15).
