“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”
Who is the strongest, the smartest, the richest and the best looking? Am I less than or greater than you? Our tendency to do this math reveals a fragile sense of self, and insecurities about who we are.
This beatitude invites us to embrace our true selves. Reality is that we are all made in the the Divine image, endowed with infinite dignity and worth. We are all equal. Humility is the quiet confidence and strength that comes from being secure and at home with who you are— out of the game of making comparisons and striving to be on top.
