Before honor…

Before honor is humility.”

– Proverbs 15:33

God can guide me to become like Him.  But I need to follow His path, not mine.

Simple Statements of Principle

In the October 1993 General Conference, Richard G. Scott gave a monumental talk called “Acquiring Spiritual Knowledge.”  I highly recommend studying this talk as it is full of simple statements of principle that can guide us in our endeavors for spiritual growth.  This quote pretty much sums up my favorite part of the article (but there is so much greatness in those few pages!).

As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles.  Carefully separate them from the detail used to explain them  Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances.  A true principle makes decisions clear even under the most confusing and compelling circumstances.  It is worth great effort to organize the truth we gather to simple statements of principle.” (italics are mine)

As per discovering this gem of a principle, I’m going to redouble my efforts to post principles to this blog.  The posts will probably be a little shorter, and hopefully a little more frequent as well.
