Doctrine and Covenants 25:5, 14

The Lord counseled Emma Smith to “continue in the spirit of meekness” (Doctrine and Covenants 25:14; see also verse 5).
Why is it important to be meek?
Elder David A. Bednar explained:
“The Christlike quality of meekness often is misunderstood in our contemporary world. Meekness is strong, not weak; active, not passive; courageous, not timid; restrained, not excessive; modest, not self-aggrandizing; and gracious, not brash. A meek person is not easily provoked, pretentious, or overbearing and readily acknowledges the accomplishments of others” (“Meek and Lowly of Heart,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2018, 32).
