“Blessed are the poor in spirit [humble] who come unto me.”

3 Nephi 12:3

3 Yea, blessed are the poor in spirit who come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

President Harold B. Lee said:

“To be poor in spirit is to feel yourselves as the spiritually needy, ever dependent upon the Lord for your clothes, your food and the air you breathe, your health, your life; realizing that no day should pass without fervent prayer of thanksgiving, for guidance and forgiveness and strength sufficient for each day’s need.”
