Relying on God in a ‘do-it-yourself’ world
It is a busy street. You and the loved child at your side need to cross it. You lean down slightly and ask him to take your hand. He shakes you off with a look of defiance. “No!” he says, puckering up his face and announcing, “All by myself.” It is clear he wants to cross the busy road without help.
In one way or another we have probably all been that adult—and that child. Some years ago I realized that I regularly insisted on doing almost everything “all by myself.” After all, I’d rationalized, doesn’t a can-do attitude fit the individualistic mind-set present in some cultures? But this approach truly wasn’t working for me.
