Words for You to Ponder Today


Pride

  • "Even when you are not at fault—perhaps especially when you are not at fault—let love conquer pride. If you do this, whatever adversity you are facing will pass, and because of the love of God in your hearts, contention will fade. These principles of saving relationships apply to all of us, regardless of whether we are married, divorced, widowed, or single. We all can be saviors of strong families."

    —Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "In Praise of Those Who Save", Ensign, May 2016
    Topics: Expressing Love, Pride

  • "At its core, pride is a sin of comparison, for though it usually begins with “Look how wonderful I am and what great things I have done,” it always seems to end with “Therefore, I am better than you.” When our hearts are filled with pride, we commit a grave sin, for we violate the two great commandments. Instead of worshipping God and loving our neighbor, we reveal the real object of our worship and love—the image we see in the mirror."

    —Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "Pride and the Priesthood"
