A meek person is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority. Rather, he may be in his moral life as bold as a lion and as strong as Samson; but he has stopped being fooled about himself. He has accepted God’s estimate of his own life. He knows he is as weak and helpless as God has declared him to be, but he knows at the same time that, in the sight of God, he is more important than angels. In himself, nothing; in God, everything. He knows that the world will never see him as God sees him and he has stopped caring.
