You are awesome

Notes for a lesson I gave yesterday (9/1) in a class at my church congregation. As is often the case, it seemed a lot better in my mind but came out poorly in reality. I pictured it more like a psych-up, and it actually was more like a sleep-through. Study the references and hopefully you'll see what I was trying to say.

Notes

Pendulum - swing back and forth. Overcompensate. Find new rest place.
“Pride is the great sin of self-elevation”

Moses 1:1-9, 10-11
Psalm 8:4–6 - what is man that thou art mindful of him?
“This is a paradox of man: compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God.”
2 Ne 4:17 - wretched man that I am
Moses 1:12, 13-18, 19-22
