(1 Timothy 6:10-11)

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them

Why do Christian churches bless the mighty and rebuke the meek? Because they are
corrupt. They seek after the glory from men instead of the glory from God. They lack faith in
the words of God.

God chose the meek man Abraham to be the father of His chosen people and also Jacob:

And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father,
and he went down into Egypt,
and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation,
great, mighty, and populous:
And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage:
And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice, and looked on
our affliction, and our labour,
and our oppression:
And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm,
and with great terribleness, and
with signs, and with wonders:
And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth
with milk and honey. (Deuteronomy 26:6-9)

Likewise God chose the meek man Jesus to be the firstborn of His chosen people. God loves
the meek and opposes the proud. That is why all who want to find God must seek meekness.

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy;
I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. (Isaiah 57:15)
