If we do not submit or follow (be meek) towards someone or something, then we become rebellious and prideful; becoming gods unto ourselves (I did it my way). This was Satan’s original sin. Not following the Creator Father is sin….and it is evil….because the Father is good.
Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Matthew 5:5, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”
Psalms 37: 9-20. (CAPITALS are my emphasis.)
“Those who do evil will perish.
BUT THOSE WHO WAIT ON THE LORD WILL INHERIT THE LAND.
Yet a little while longer,
and the wicked will be no more.
You will search for his place,
but he will not be there.
THE HUMBLE WILL INHERIT THE LAND;
they will take in abundant peace.
The wicked person plots against the righteous,
and grinds his teeth at him.
But the Lord laughs at him
because he sees that his day is coming!
The wicked take out a sword and bend the bow,
to bring down the humble and the poor
to slay those who are righteous in conduct.
But their sword will pierce their own heart,
and their bows will be broken!
Better is the little that the righteous have
than the abundance of many wicked people.
For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.
The Lord knows the day of the blameless,
and their inheritance will last forever.
They will not experience shame in times of trouble;
in times of famine they will have plenty.
Indeed, the wicked will perish.”
