In our society today, showing vulnerability and asking for help is seen as a weakness. We are taught to rely on ourselves and to do our own thing. This mindset is leading to the downfall of society. 

A person could be drowning and yet they refuse to grab the rope in front of them and they decide to try to swim instead.

This has created a prideful generation. 

I am guilty of this myself. 

As someone with a disability I find myself in situations at times when I must ask for help. This might be asking for directions when I am out or asking for help to find items at a store. This is something that I still have trouble with and sometimes make things harder for myself instead of just asking for help but I would say that being visually impaired has made me humble.

There is a more important reason to ask for help, and it concerns life and death. This is a picture of your life; you find yourself about to fall into a pit of fire and there is a rope available for you to grab and be lifted to safety but you choose to climb and lift yourself instead.

This is what it is like to be full of pride and refuse help. This is what it is like to refuse God’s helping hand. 

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, instead it is a sign of wisdom. Sometimes, when we try to do everything on our own it all falls apart. Sometimes asking for help is the strong thing to do.

God is waiting to save you.

Acts 2:21 KJV — And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
