    This is excellent. I'm a do it myself kind of person. It's just easier. I was listening to a message by Pete Wilson last week, he brought up that the "just do it myself, I don't need help" attitude is a sign of pride. I really need that out of my life.

    I think it's true in church too - we see people "join" a church and jump in with both feet when they see that their gifts are needed, when their presence seems to matter. When you sit on the sidelines in any arena, you tend to not be able to engage as much. And when we let others help they can many times do it better than we could - or we can teach while we have help.


    Great post; I enjoyed reading it. I also think that by asking someone for their help, you help them to feel needed and wanted as well.
