Imagine you’re hurting. Maybe you’ve lost your job. Or you’re dealing long term health issues. You don’t see an immediate way out. You need help. In this, you’re not alone. Lots of people face similar circumstances. Most would like to be able to handle their problems on their own. To be self-sufficient. To pull themselves up by their bootstraps. But sometimes that’s just not possible. Sometimes we genuinely need help--and those of us in a position to provide it should not turn away from the opportunity.
