to be meek or not to be meek
Isn't it strange how the exact same words can have opposing meanings by different viewpoints?.
Question is it better to be meek or not to be meek?
For example the words - "The meek shall inherit the Earth"
To some it means - "Be meek and the Earth is where you will stay."
To others it's meaning could be - "Refuse to be meek and Earth is where you will abide.
Assuming that either if you are not meek you will be taken elsewhere where life is not as pleasent as it is on Earth.or just the opposite,you will be taken somewhere more pleaseant than the Earth.Where would that be?
It's all a matter of perception of wheather life on Earth is worth living or not and wheather your being meek ,meaning meek in body or spirit? If body then that must be refering to your brain,if spirit,that would be refering to your soul.If you believe in incarnation then you will be getting a new body.
So what is your take on The meek and it's meaning?
