Neal-A-Maxwell-Mormon“God is not only there in the mildest expressions of His presence, but also in those seemingly harsh expressions.  For example, when truth ‘cutteth… to the very center (1 Nephi 16:2), this may signal that spiritual surgery is underway , painfully severing pride from the soul.”

ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“Pride is characterized by “What do I want out of life?” rather than by “What would God have me do with my life?” It is self-will as opposed to God’s will. It is the fear of man over the fear of God. Humility responds to God’s will—to the fear of His judgments and the needs of those around us. To the proud, the applause of the world rings in their ears; to the humble, the applause of heaven warms their hearts.”
– Ezra Taft Benson
