We’re all struggling in one way or another. One of the most overlooked, but most effective ways to serve others is to let go of our superiority, and have the humility to ask for help. We can foster real friendship by simply saying “I need your help.”
Would you be willing to share how your struggling with a trusted friend and simply ask them to pray for you?
Showing and sharing weakness is countercultural and can seem counterintuitive, but it’s not counterproductive! God tells us that we need each other. He commands us to pray for each other and bear one another’s burdens. We certainly don’t know better than Him.
Imagine a world where lonely independent superiority is replaced by gracious dependence on God and one another!
“…love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” -Jesus, John 13:34-35
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. -Galatians 6:2
