March 12

Principle: Humility, be teachable, have life long learning.

Spend time doing each of these five inspirements:
1 hour for Apprentice,
1 1/2 hour for Journeyman,
and 2 hours or more for Master level 

You all did a great job at teaching each other about Humility last week! Nice work! This week you're encouraged to stretch your understanding about Humility a bit further.

1. Watch or read this talk from President Uchtdorf "Pride and the Priesthood." Write down your thoughts/inspirations in your Truth Book.

2. Read these scriptures to understand how the Savior showed humility and write your findings in your Truth Book:
  • Whom did He honor in all his actions? (See John 6:38 and John 5:30)
  • How did He treat everyone, including the poor, the sick, the lonely, the repentant sinner? (See Luke 4:18, Matthew 14:14, Johnson 8:11) 

3. Read this incredible excerpt from C.S. Lewis' book "The Screwtape Letters" and see if you can imagine how the adversary uses pride to ensnare us. Write the thoughts/inspiration that comes to you in your Truth Book. Here's a bit of info to help you understand what the book is about:
"Lewis's satire is a Christian classic. Screwtape is a veteran demon in the service of "Our Father Below" whose letters to his nephew and protege, Wormwood, instruct the demon-in-training in the fine points of leading a new Christian astray."

4. Listen to the hymn "Be Thou Humble" and read the words, ponder on the feeling and the meaning behind this song (over on the right side of the page you can click on 'vocals and music' if you'd like.) Write down your thoughts/inspirations in your Truth Book.

5. Read through these "10 Ways to Develop Humility" and consider one of them you'd like to work on. Write about it in your Truth Book and work on it during this coming week. Come ready to class next week to share something you've learned from this exercise.
