Responding to lifelines

Do we take hold of the help that comes to us?

The scene is a classic one: a man is washed overboard during a monstrous storm at sea. Immediately a line is thrown out; the man overboard catches hold of it and is pulled to safety.

Lifelines appear in many forms. Someone may extend a helping hand during a time of financial need. Or a colleague at work may point out a better way to accomplish the job at hand. Perhaps a friend comforts us when we're at a low ebb, or a perfect stranger holds out his umbrella during a sudden shower.
