3 Nephi 1: 25
Faith and Humility
The people misunderstood that the Law of Moses had not been fulfilled yet but when they realized that they were wrong and that in a short time it would be fulfilled then they confessed their faults.
They were humble enough to accept the correction in their thinking. They were renewed in their faith that the prophecy’s would be fulfilled. They had both faith and humility
Many of us live or work in an environment where humility is often misunderstood and considered a weakness. Not many corporations or institutions include humility as a value statement or a desired characteristic of their management. Yet as we learn about the workings of God, the power of a humble and submissive spirit becomes apparent. In the kingdom of God, greatness begins with humility and submissiveness. These companion virtues are the first critical steps to opening the doors to the blessings of God and the power of the priesthood. It matters not who we are or how lofty our credentials appear. Humility and submissiveness to the Lord, coupled with a grateful heart, are our strength and our hope.
