Come Follow Me


Be Thou Humble

Reinforces this week’s “Come Follow Me” study: Doctrine and Covenants 111-114
“I Will Order All Things for Your Good”


Doctrine & Covenants 112:10

“Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.”


Be Thou Humble, Hymn #130


After hearing that there might be money available in Salem, Massachusetts, Joseph Smith and a few of the Church leaders went to see if there might really be treasure there. After building the temple, they were trying to find a way to pay their debts. They discovered that there wasn’t any treasure, but the Lord taught them that He had other treasures there for them. They were able to preach and baptize several people in the area.

As the Church grew and the Twelve Apostles learned how to fulfill their callings, sometimes they complained or didn’t agree. The Lord reminded them to be humble and purify their hearts. If they did, He promised that He would lead them and help them to share the gospel with many nations.


“The humble are teachable, recognizing how dependent they are on God and desiring to be subject to His will. The humble are meek and have the ability to influence others to be the same.” Ulisses Soares


  • What kind of “treasure” did Joseph Smith find in Salem?
  • What does it mean to be humble?
  • Why do we need to be humble in order for the Lord to lead us?
  • How can we purify our hearts?

Activity idea:

Eternal Treasures

What are some things your family values as eternal "treasures"? Let each family member write down something they treasure and add it to the treasure chest. Then play the game "hot and cold" to find the treasure.

Treat idea:

Gelatin Hearts

In D&C 112:28 the Lord tells the Twelve Apostles to purify their hearts. As you make these gelatin hearts, discuss ways we can make our hearts pure.
