“To be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God.” – 2 Nephi 9:29
“Perhaps the greatest obstacle to our ability to hearken courageously to the word of the Lord involves our egos, vain ambitions, and pride. If we fail to modify our course and purge ourselves of pride, we may find ourselves shipwrecked upon the shoals of life, unable to courageously hearken to the beckonings of the Savior to “come unto me” (Matt. 11:28).” – H. David Burton
