Perhaps few words in the English language have been so misunderstood as the word meek, the object of Christ Jesus’ third beatitude: “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5).
By popular reckoning, meek means weak. However, the authoritative teachings of the Bible and Christian Science correlate meekness with invincible strength.
Christian Science teaches that such strength is an expression, through man, of God’s infinite power over all error and discord. That it is the logical outcome of man’s spiritual understanding of God and of man’s eternal unity with Him.
