Are you a do it yourself person? Are you one of those people who can build a barn, repair a fence, install a hot water heater and never get upset or stumped? Well, I am not.
I hate working with wood and have a wife who is better with power tools than I am. I am not a DIY person.
My limitations force me to ask for help. I hate asking for help.
But the truth is that we all need help from time to time.
Having to ask for help keeps us humble.
It allows us to develop relationships with people who are different from us.
Asking others for help allows them to develop their gifts and affirm their worth.
If you are beyond needing help then you are setting yourself up for a fall. Everybody needs help.
By the way, please return your neighbors tools you borrowed last summer. You know who you are.
