There are moments when we need help.
This was Jesus admitting that there was something that he couldn't do on his own. That he needed help. He needed a hand.
Some days, we will need a hand to help us. There are two very distinct avenues we can take:
when we get around people and in the church, we put our mask on.
But, y'all, where does that come from? Jesus didn't wear a mask-- on on the worst day he ever had he admitted his needs. Mask off, saying, "I am thirsty."
Why do we rummage through the trash to find our best mask?
And we on those good clothes.
And the best shoes.
And hop into the fancy car.
And get the degrees.
And the jobs.
And use the social media to say everything is fine.
Everything is great. Everything is perfect!
Why do we pretend and lie to ourselves and others?
to live with the mask off...
Do not let fear and pride cripple us
What is making you wear a mask instead of receiving help?
There has to be a moment that you crack-- that you cannot bear the weight alone anymore, and you seek help.
our needs cannot be met until we admit our needs. we must let go of our pride, and then, we can begin to walk humbly.
We need people.
We need a person.
Your very worst day may just be the day that you make your deepest relationship.
we must embrace being loved.
We must get used to it.
It is hard.
Let. People. Love. You.
Acknowledge that you need love to make it in this life.
Find people who will push you, love you, and make you uncomfortable.
we all make mistakes.
