“Blessed Are the Meek”

“Meekness is a grace whereby we are enabled by the Spirit of God, to moderate our angry passions. Meekness has a divine beauty and sweetness in it. This meekness consists in three things: the bearing of injuries, the forgiving of injuries and the recompensing good for evil.” By Thomas Watson, “The Beatitudes” 1660, www.gracegems.org/quotes
