General Conference thoughts: The Eternal Everyday

by Elder Quentin L. Cook

This talk may seem a paradox of sorts.  In order to be God-like we need to be humble.  At first reading, it may appear wrong.  In order to be God-like shouldn’t we focus on becoming powerful?

Humility is one of those qualities that is often misunderstood.  Being humble is not a weakness but a strength.  It is something to be desired not fixed.  Personal experience has shown me that I respect the leader who jumps in with rolled up sleeves when needed than the leader who sits and barks orders.

There is a warning with this though.  Fake humility can cause damage.  It must be a sincere, genuine attribute for it to be effective.
