St. John Chrysostom on the honor of being meek.
Most cultures have some kind of “honor system,” where a person’s personal reputation must be defended at all costs. But what if we understood true honor as being meekness in the face of insults?
St. John Chrysostom explains:
There is nothing stronger than meekness, nothing more powerful; it preserves our soul in quiet, and strives to lead it as into a harbor, and is the cause of every kind of satisfaction for us; and nothing else can give the soul repose and great quiet as well as meekness and humble mindedness.
