Sometimes, well really all the time, the gift of tongues requires work and humility.
A picture truly is worth a thousand words.
And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them. – Ether 12:27
