The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth…


Howard W. Hunter

“What of the meek?  In a world too preoccupied with winning through intimidation and seeking to be number one, no large crowd of folk is standing in line to buy books that call for meekness.  But the meek shall inherit the earth, a pretty impressive corporate takeover—and done without intimidation!  Sooner or later, and we pray sooner than later, everyone will acknowledge that Christ’s way is not only the right way, but ultimately the only way to hope and joy.  Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that gentleness is better than brutality, that kindness is greater than coercion, that the soft voice turneth away wrath.  In the end, and sooner than that whenever possible, we must be more like him” (The Teachings of Howard W. Hunter, p. 266
