It's been awhile since I've read Ezra Taft Benson's talk on Pride. Here are the first two installments (I and II). It's been on my mind today, so I thought I'd spend my scripture study time looking a bit further into these great words. Hope you enjoy them too. Here's the talk in its entirety if you're interested.
So, if we want to be free of pride, we must be grateful for all that we have knowing that it could be taken away at any moment. We need to give to others—do random acts of kindness just because our fellowmen are His children too. It seems that we are frequently afraid to act on another’s behalf because in this day and age, there are sometimes dire consequences, so we’ve dropped the Good Samaritan idea. Do we fear man more than God?
