Meakness by William Hendriksen

Expounding Matthew 5:4, "Blessed are the meak for they shall inherit the earth" Hendriksen says,
"Yet meekness is not weakness. Meekness is not spinelessness, the characteristics of the person who is ready to bow before every breeze. It is submissiveness under provocation, the willingness rather to suffer than to inflict injury. The meek person leaves everything in the hand of him who loves and cares."
