Blessed are the Meek

I have been pondering some of Jesus' words in Matthew 5. In verse 5 he says:

"Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth."
Meekness toward God is that disposition of spirit in which we accept His dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or resisting. In the Old Testament, the meek are those wholly relying on God rather than their own strength to defend against injustice. --From

I find it interesting that it is the meek that inherit the earth, not the proud and overly egotistical that seem to be glorified in our day. God's economy is upside down from the world's values. We are called as followers of Jesus to live radically different lives.

Where have you seen meekness at work in your life or the life of others?
