Blessed Are the Meek

D.A. Carson from his book The Sermon on the Mount

It is appalling that meekness does not characterize more of us who claim to be Christians. Both at the personal level, where we are too often concerned with justifying ourselves rather than with edifying our brother, and at the corporate level where we are more successful at organizing rallies, instutuions, and pressure groups than extending the Kingdom of God. Meekness has not been a mark of most Christians for a long time.
