D&C 112:10 -- On Humility and Answers

"Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers."
Doctrine and Covenants 112:10

What struck me about this verse today is that we really can't be led if we think that we know a better way.  That's why humility and meekness are essential, so that we can get over ourselves enough to listen to God, to have the calmness and self-restraint necessary to bridle our passions (not destroy them, mind you, but direct them and satisfy our needs in ways that the Lord approves of), and to not wander off the path because we think that we have found a good shortcut that God hasn't thought of. :)

We all want answers, right?  We all want to find our way to the destination that God's path leads to.  So, today, let's work on our humility and qualify for those promises.  Let's get our egos our of the way, and reach for God's hand, and listen for his answers in our lives.
