|Asking for help can also make us face our hidden motives: for example, am I unwilling to ask for help because I want to look competent or be commended for my own accomplishments? In all that we are asked to do, may we follow Saint Paul’s advice to the Colossians, “Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as for the Lord and not for others” (3:23).
Share: Next time you have a task or responsibility that you find overwhelming, ask someone for help. Then, as you begin your work suggest that you say a prayer together, placing it in God’s hands, trusting that God will give both of you all the strength you need to do what He is asking.
