Dec 18 – I Can Do It Myself

Katie is a beautiful, independent young woman, now 21, a university student. When very young, often, when offered help to do something, her words were “ I can do it myself.” And that is not bad. From the moment we take our first spill, instead of running to pick us up, they told us to do it ourselves. They were teaching us self- reliance. So we began to think, “I can do it myself..” And there are lots of things we can do and should do for ourselves. But one thing we cannot do is face our creator on our own. Nobody is good enough or strong enough to make it into heaven without help. The Bible says,- “…when the kindness and the love of God our savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us…” When it comes to becoming a Christian, please don’t say, “I can do it myself.”
