Chasing After Dominion
What a great beatitude for Stewardship Sunday! We use our money and position to retain a sense of control of the world around us…we seem to think that God calls us to dominate the earth/world rather than to hold responsibility for it. And we are sure that we even want to be meek…rhymes with weak, after all. To be meek is to turn the other cheek. We’d rather get even. It’s hard to believe that the meek will inherit the earth when the rich and powerful seem to hold all the cards. But to be meek is to receive a kingdom blessing.
