This morning I was reading a talk by Elder Marlin K. Jensen and stumbled upon this great quote that goes along with Andrea's question, "How do you know if you're improving?"
He said, "Consciously trying to acquire humility is . . . problematic. I remember once hearing one of my colleagues in the Seventy say about humility that 'if you think you have it, you don't.' He suggested we should try to develop humility and be sure we didn't know when we got it, and then we would have it. But if we ever thought we had it, we wouldn't."
How's that for CONFUSION!!?!?!
And then later on he quotes Micah 6:8 which goes along perfectly with what I think Andrea has been saying all along. It reads, "He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God."
It's all about LOVE.
