Do we feel the need to be humble? The blessings of humility are amazing and empowering, for humility is the seedbed and beginning to becoming a better you. Humility is the antidote for pride. Pride is the cause of almost all sin, while humility is the precursor to submitting to the will of God, which brings forth all the blessings associated with obedience.
Ed J. Pinegar, “31 Days to a Better You”
There are a lot of things that I need to improve on. Things that I know I need to be better at but either lack the motivation or lack the willpower to do so.
Being more humble is not what comes to mind when I think to improve myself. It's always been just set my mind to being better and putting in the effort to control myself.
I am reminded what Elder Packer said when he said (paraphrasing)...studying gospel principles will improve behavior quicker than the study of behavior will improve behavior.
Bottom line is learning to be more humble and then being more humble will help me to become a better me. If I want to change, then humility is key.
