    “Meekness is the armor of a Christian, his shield and his buckler.” (Message for 1902 p.19:12-13)

    Webster’s Dictionary 1828:
    Meekness – humility;… submission to the divine will; opposed to pride…
    Armor- Defensive arms;… In English statutes, armor is used for the whole apparatus of war; including offensive as well as defensive arms.

    Meekness, not pride, is our armor and defends us from arrows that pass over us; for we are humble and bent low. Meekness is our offensive strength for; we humbly listen and hear God. He directs us rightly every time.
    Meekness gives us sight to do right; and pride is blindness and leads us astray every time.
