Writing as an evangelical Christian and follower of Jesus myself, I answer this question based on biblical interpretation. There is a large forward looking sense in the beatitudes blessings. For example, the "pure in heart" will "see God". Christians will not literally "see God" until the end of time in the new reality at the end of time. (Revelation 22:3-4 "...there will no longer be any curse, and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, ...and they will see His face....) As like "seeing God" ... the meek (humble, dutiful, obedient, teachable) may not inherit the earth, until after the curse is removed. The curse of the land, See (Gen 3:17..."cursed is the ground because of you... in toil you will eat of it..." The curse if removed in the end of time as we know it. That is: biblically speaking after the 1000 year reign of Jesus, and after the final rebellion of Satan and after the final judgement. At that time a "new heaven and new earth" are created by God. Jesus followers ihnerit the new earth. Jesus who spoke to his followers present, in Galilee in this sermon, that "the meek will inherit the earth" also said later to John, one of his followers present, in a vision where an inheritance of the earth is mentioned. John is speaking in Revelation 21:1 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth… the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea…" Revelation 21:7 …. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be my son…" So, in the new earth that God creates at the end of time, Jesus followers will "inherit" the new earth.

A much less Ptolemaic answer would be as follows. Those who are meek shall inherit the earth by being buried in it and/or those who are meek shall inherit the earth by becoming slaves of the Romans who are sent to work on farms.
The meek shall inherit the earth, and that means all of it - every single bit. It doesn't matter what the current laws of human beings are: Christ made everything and can do what He likes with it. However, this will only occurr in the Millennium after Christ returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
