Meekness and Quietness of Spirit
"A meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price." (1 Peter 3:4) "Meekness may be considered with respect both to God and to our brethren; it belongs to both the tables of the law, and attends upon the first great commandment, 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God; as well as the second, which is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.'" "Quietness is the evenness, the composure and the rest of the soul, which speaks both the nature and the excellency of the grace of meekness. The greatest comfort and happiness of man is sometimes set forth by quietness. That peace of conscience which Christ has left for a legacy to his disciples, that present sabbath of the soul which is an earnest of the rest that remains for the people of God, is called 'quietness and assurance forever,' and is promised as the effect of righteousness."
