Humility

Twitter

(This is an excerpt from the chapter "Humility" in the book Life's Lessons Learned.)

Each of us has personal strengths that can detract from our humility. If we engage in self-congratulation over those strengths, we lose the protection of humility and are vulnerable to Satan’s using our strengths to produce our downfall. In contrast, if we are humble and teachable, hearkening to the commandments of God, the counsel of His leaders, and the promptings of His Spirit, we can be guided in how to use our spiritual gifts, our accomplishments, and all our other strengths for righteousness.
