3. Blessed are the Meek for they shall inherit the earth

As with most things with God, those unattached to earthly power are the same ones who are promised they shall  inherit the earth. This makes intuitive sense when we look at gifting someone something that is beautiful and to be cared for.  We wouldn’t want to give it to the person who is going to wield their power over it and push it to destruction,  but instead gift it to the one who is disinterested in having power over it, and instead is meek enough to accept the gift and to want to care for it.
