“Reprove with Equity for the Meek”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
God, who shows no favoritism to those of worldly wealth and position, has promised that the “poor and the meek shall have the gospel preached onto them” (D&C 35:15), and that they shall inherit the earth in its sanctified and perfected state (D&C 88:17-18). In the context of his prophecy of the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, Isaiah wrote: “The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 29:19).
