Who will inherit the earth?

Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth."

Worldly wisdom contradicts God's wisdom.  The worldly sages tell us that to inherit the earth you must have power and influence.  You must network to make the right connections.  The pathway to greatness is not in the power to control but living your life under God's control.  The word gentle can also mean meekness. How does one learn to live under control?  How can we be gentle? We cannot be gentle without the work of the Holy Spirit, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control; against such things there is no law.  (Galatians 5:22-23)" Grow in gentleness by submitting to the Lord Jesus.  Allow him to direct your daily walk.  Trust in Him when you are tempted to take matters in your own hand,  Will you inherit the earth?
