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. It seems that the proud find it burdensome to hear and accept the instruction of God. —H. David Burton
