Kindred,


Do you know who else in history was considered meek? 


Many of the world's religions formed by prophets and teachers were meek.


Budda in Buddhism: “He who utters only gentle, instructive and truthful speech, criticizing no-one that is what I call a brahmin.” Gentle and full of meekness.


Buddhist, Dhammapada – Sayings of the Buddha 1 (tr. J. Richards)


In Islam: “The Prophet said, “Be gentle and calm, O ‘Aisha, as Allah likes gentleness (meekness) in all affairs.”


Islam, Hadith, Bukhari Vol 8, Book 75, # 404


Judaism: 


“Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.”.      

                                   Numbers 12:3


Hinduism: “For him also (are prescribed) truthfulness, meekness, and purity.” 51.


Hindu, The Dharma Sutras, Gutama 10


And many more religions of the world instruct believers to be meek; where meekness is an attribute of true believers.  


In Christianity:


“In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;"

                                  2 Timothy 2:25


Therefore, if believers of many faiths are true, practice their faiths as instructed and make real their true beliefs, then 

"the meek will inherit the earth".  


                                   Matthew 5:5
