“I don’t need your help!”

I can!

Before learning to swim, I was struggling in water over my head. There was a boy on the edge of the pool, but I did not want him to save me.

Managing to get to where I could touch bottom, I didn’t need saving after all!

Reminds me of the little girl who’d say, “Self do it!” Children must learn to stand on their own feet, and yet . . . .

I can’t!

Wisdom comes in realizing there are times when we are in way over our heads and self can’t do it.

“For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 6:6).
