Doctrine and Covenants 69

(October 29, 2015)
                It is our pride that resists a recognition of our weaknesses.  There is nothing wrong with being weak (a condition we all share), and our humility allows the Lord to work around our weaknesses.  Sometimes the Lord does this by strengthening us, and other times He does this by giving us those around us who can help us.

                But imagine if Oliver Cowdery had been too proud to travel with John Whitmer.  Is there any doubt that he would have come to disaster?  When the Lord puts help in our path to deal with our weaknesses, it is foolish to deny that help because we think we are strong.  Instead, may we grab on to that help with both hands and a recognition of the blessing that it is from the Lord.
