Meekness Is Might

The world is constantly bombarding us with suggestions that physical strength, wealth, material possessions, human brilliance, the "correct" friends or personal contact, and so on, are passports to power. These human advantages claim to be important—even necessary—to success in gaining freedom and dominion.

It is certainly right to have freedom and dominion—these are man's heritage, and understanding this, we can demonstrate that we have them. From the first chapter in Genesis the Bible reveals God as always giving man dominion over all the earth—true dominion based on his sonship with God. But does this mean that the many people who appear to lack the physical evidences of dominion and might are separated from God's blessing? Those who are quiet, without overriding ambition, selfless, kind, given to helping others—should they be considered weak and easily ruled or manipulated by anything or anyone with greater material power?
