We use the word, 'help' everywhere: Information desks, books, movies, music....even the blue Walmart vests boast, "How may I help you?"
But why is it so difficult for us to ask for help? Asking for help shows that you are resourceful and that you know how to find answers, right? Then why do we view it as a weakness?
Children naturally ask for - and accept - help.
Older, and wiser, friends know their limits and when to ask for help.
So what is wrong with the rest of us? We bite our tongues, dig in deep, and struggle all alone. What relationships and blessings are we missing out on when we pridefully and fearfully refuse to ask for help?
Take a look at the attached picture. Trey needed help in order to make the basket. He and Jay look pretttttty happy working together!
Try it tomorrow. Ask for help. And stir up a little joy! :)
"let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works" Hebrews 10:24
