When Bro Karren asked me to speak in church, he gave me the option of speaking on the topic of Pride or on Humility. I told him I had much more experience with the one vs the other, and so I will devote my talk today to the subject of .. Pride. Well, perhaps we will touch on a bit of both: What about - ‘Prideful humility’ vs ‘Humble pride’?
Sitting in our testimony meeting last week I was thinking on just what it meant to bear and to have a testimony. While I would have liked to be one of those standing to bear a testimony, I didn't really have anything very extraordinary to say, time was short with many others already speaking, and many other perfectly appropriate excuses came to my mind. I have a testimony. I know that God exists, that this is His church. He directs the leaders of this Church to our benefit, that living and following His teachings will bring us closer to Him. We are blessed when we follow him.
