outside help

      Yesterday, I saw a man with patient eyes leaning on his walker in the bakery section of the grocery, waiting. He asked me in halting words to get him two apple-filled donuts and one glazed, and then he slowly thanked me and very slowly lifted his hand to take the bag. He probably never forgets that he needs outside help.

Lord, You say that I can do nothing apart from You, which means that I always need outside help. Please don’t let me forget that today. From John 15:5

Self-sufficient: needing no outside help
