Humility

Sunday, September 09, 2007
I was asked to give a talk today in church on the topic of humility. I really enjoyed my studying over the last week as I prepared. I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes that I found:
  • To be humble is to recognize gratefully our dependence on the Lord—to understand that we have constant need for His support.
  • “Humbly submitting our will to the Father brings us the empowerment of God – the power of humility. It is the power to meet life’s adversities, the power of peace, the power of hope, the power of a heart throbbing with a love for and a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ, even the power of redemption.” -Bishop Richard C. Edgely
  • “How can we sincerely pray to be an instrument in His hands if the instrument seeks to do the instructing?” -Elder Neal A. Maxwell
