Majesty and meekness? Most things have value, but not all things have monetary value. What was Jesus saying when he preached, “Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). What sort of inheritance did he have in mind? Was He talking about a different kind of inheritance?
Think about it. Meekness is a quality of Christian character that bespeaks a courageous adherence to God’s will, an uncompromising willingness to be obedient no matter what. So, how does God reward such character? He gives us the earth, but not the world.
God’s Word tells us: “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matthew 5:5).
So, obey God and you’re likely to receive an inheritance of very dear value, the earth itself. When you and I battle sin and evil, stridently pursuing a life of valiant, Christian integrity, God chooses to share the intrinsic value of his creation, the earth, with us. On the one hand it seems like nothing much, on the other, it’s the very first thing God made, even before man. The resale value is minimal, the intrinsic value is matchless. Majesty with meekness.
“Lord, I thank you for a beautiful day like this. Thank you for the privilege of seeing this day. Lord, I pray that if I have been arrogant unconsciously or consciously, please forgive me. Give me a heart of meekness. Lord, give me a heart that is submissive and obedient to your Word In Jesus name. Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
