The meek shall inherit the earth.

Jesus is not saying “blessed are the weak, blessed are the passive, blessed are the spineless, the yes men, the doormats, the wishy-washy.” He’s not saying “blessed are the flakes, blessed are the cowards, the timid.”

Meekness is totally giving yourself over to God’s ways because you know that they are good. And that your ultimate source of purpose, joy, and hope is in the Lord, not in your own efforts.
