Leadership isn't a crown, it's a shovel

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.

Thanks for the link, Rich. I really like that post - and the quote in the title of this one.

I like that a lot. A good reminder to lead by action and not be words.
