God Uses Servants Who Are “The Weak Things of the World” to Accomplish His Work

Doctrine and Covenants 1:19

19 The weak things of the world shall come forth and break down the mighty and strong ones, that man should not counsel his fellow man, neither trust in the arm of flesh . . .

President Spencer W. Kimball said:

“I would not say that those leaders whom the Lord chooses are necessarily the most brilliant, nor the most highly trained, but they are the chosen, and when chosen of the Lord they are His recognized authority, and the people who stay close to them have safety.”
