Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. – Matthew 5:5Meek in the Bible is not the same as weak. Meekness literally means gentle. It takes great strength to be gentle. Jesus is implying that the rule and reign on his earth is to be a gentle one. To show restraint is a sign of ruling over your own passions. To be faithful in this little thing makes us rulers over much.

I like what he said. To be gentle. Gentle with others hearts, gentle with others beliefs, gentle with others until they come to believe. Not weak with your faith, gentle with their hearts. There are always loving ways to speak the truth until there is no resort but to walk away. That's still gentle. Justifiable anger is whole other issue.
