The assignment all of us were given was to ask for help and accept it without trying to repay and even the score. The reason is if we can’t receive graciously, we will not give graciously. We will always see ourselves in a position of power and judgment when helping someone else if we’re not willing to receive help. I really don’t care if someone thinks they’re the exception–the research shows there are no exceptions. Yesterday on a ride I realized I the riders I was with were having to slow and wait for me. Now, I don’t mind waiting for another rider who is a bit slower, but I hate it if I’m that rider. Oops. I realized it was all about my ego and my inability to truly receive grace in real life situations. Can’t say I immediately adjusted my attitude–I can’t–but I’m praying God can. Rich
