The helping door swings both ways


As I explained to my first graders in Sunday School today, the helping door swings both ways. What do I mean by this? Sometimes you are helping and sometimes someone is helping you. This is OK. I asked them how does it feel when you help someone. They all expressed good. I asked how do you think it feels for someone else when they help you. They said good. I explained it was kind to let someone feel the good feelings you have when you help someone.

How did I learn this lesson? Years of mistakes.

I thought I had to be tuff and strong. I thought I had to do everything myself and not accept help. Now I know, I do what I can do and God does the rest. I know I do my best.

Now, I know my strength lies in my ability to accept help and grow. You could say my strength lies in my vulnerability.
