23) ARROGANCE: Was the Prophet Joseph arrogant?

Prophetic Statements

Joseph Smith

The question was put to him, “Joseph, is the principle of self-aggrandizement wrong? Should we seek our own good?”  His answer: “It is a correct principle and may be indulged upon only one rule or plan-and that is to elevate, benefit, and bless others first. If you will elevate others, the very work itself will exalt you. Upon no other plan can a man justly and permanently aggrandize himself.” (Truman Madsen Joseph Smith tapes)
