As Elder Maxwell explains, being meek allows us to learn from God and to be an instrument in His hands. Moses was an example of one who was meek. Think of someone who you would consider to be a meek person and then make a list of qualities that define such an individual.
How can you develop those qualities in your own life?
3 Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.
As the Lord communicates with the meek and submissive, fewer decibels are required, and more nuances are received. Even the most meek, like Moses, learn overwhelming things they “never had supposed.” But it is only the meek mind which can be so shown and so stretched—not those, as Isaiah wrote, who “are wise in their own eyes.” … Yielding one’s heart to God signals the last stage in our spiritual development. Only then are we beginning to be fully useful to God! How can we sincerely pray to be an instrument in His hands if the instrument seeks to do the instructing?
