Meekness


“Our Lord described Himself as meek (Matt. 11:29), yet He smashed up the markets outside the temple in Jerusalem (John 2:13–22); He denounced the Pharisees, scribes, and Sadducees as “hypocrites” and a “brood of vipers” and told them they were going to hell (Matt. 23:13–33). He frequently rebuked His apostles and admonished the Israelites for their faithlessness (Luke 9:41). He was no pushover, until He voluntarily gave Himself up to humiliation, violence, and death, even though as God He had the power— and, indeed, the right— to destroy His oppressors on the spot.” (Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou)

“…meekness often subdues even the most beastly enemies, softens them and pacifies

them…Contrary to popular opinion, it takes strength to be gentle. (St. Tikhon of Zadonsk, Lloyd

John Ogilvie)
