I Hate to Ask for Help

I hate to ask for help. I don’t know why, but it’s true. The other day my wife had a flat tire, so she pulled off and parked at an old abandoned grocery store. My plan was to air the tire up and drive to a tire shop, but it wasn’t going so well. My next plan of action was to put on the spare tire. My friend and neighbor saw me working on it. He offered to help and I said, “No thanks. I am ok.” I didn’t want to be a bother. Besides, I wanted to do it all by myself. He helped anyway, and I am glad he did. He brought an air compressor and some Fix a flat. So far, the tire is still good. Ecclesiastes 4 reminds us, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” God wants us to help one another. We need to help one another. That means we need help from time to time. You have no problem helping others. Make sure you let people help you!
