Jesus Not Only Preached Meekness; He Practiced It

But He not only preached meekness; He practiced it. When His own people picked up stones to throw at Him, He threw none back in return: when His fellow townsmen brought Him to the brow of the hill to cast Him over the precipice, He walked through their midst unharmed; when the soldier struck Him with a mailed fist and made the Savior feel by anticipation the clenched fist of communism, He answered meekly: "If I have spoken evil, give testimony of the evil: but if well, why strikest thou me?" (John 18:23).

(Fulton J. Sheen, “The Cries of Jesus from the Cross”, Sophia 2018, Page 008)
