The Lord calls those blessed who are meek (Matthew 5.5).  He means those who are of a patient  and contented spirit.  They are willing to put up with little honor here below.  They can bear injuries without resentment.  They are not ready to take offense.  Like Lazarus in the parable, they are content to wait for their good things (Luke 16.25).  They are never losers in the long run.  One day, they shall reign (Revelation 5.10). – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), from a meditation on Matthew 5.1-12.
