“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ~ Matthew 8:6 NIV, Holy Bible, eBook (p. 938). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.
At this point, it might be well to explain alcoholism, the illness. Say that you believe he is a gravely ill person, with this qualification—being perhaps fatally ill, does he want to get well? You ask, because many alcoholics, being warped and drugged, do not want to quit. But does he? Will he take every necessary step, submit to anything to get well, to stop drinking forever?~ A.A. World Services Inc. Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition . A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
Who are the meek?
The quiet, the gentle?
those easily imposed on…?
Those ready to conform
to the authority or will of others?
meekly obedient or passive?
almost sheeplike people?
Perhaps the best answer
is that the meek are people
who admit they are powerless over life,
who come to believe that a Power
greater than they can restore their sanity
and who choose that route!
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
