INHERITING THE EARTH

Let us see how we are to go about inheriting the earth. This Beatitude says that dominion, that is, power over the conditions of our lives is to be obtained in a certain way, by nothing less than meekness.

The word meek in the Bible connotes a mental attitude for which there is no other single word available. It is a combination of open-mindedness, faith in God, and the realization that the will for us is always something joyous and interesting and vital. The state of mind also includes a perfect willingness to allow this will of God to come about in whatever way divine Wisdom considers to be best, rather than in some particular way that we have chosen for ourselves.

This mental attitude of teachableness, willingness to be led, is the key to dominion, or success in demonstration. There is no word for it in common speech, because the thing does nt exist except for those who are up on the spiritual basis of the teaching of Jesus Christ. If we desire to inherit the earth we must absolutely acquire this "meekness."

The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice... (Psalm 97:1).
