I remember coming across a phrase a few months ago, "The priesthood isn't a crown, it's a shovel." I may have read it here. It reminds me of King Mosiah as he describes he does not want to be a burden to the people he serves so he tills the ground for his own food. Many of the principles of leading as God leads are given in D&C 121:34-46.
As I searched for this phrase this morning, I also found this post. What a great example of lifting where I stand.
