Today I helped my neighbor remove an old vanity from their bathroom. Then, with the help of a different neighbor, we hauled in the new vanity.
I am not a plumber so I didn’t do anything further with the remodel project.
It was really enjoyable to help someone in need. I had the expertise (I use that term loosely), and they asked for my help.
It was a great day.
And then I realized that Lent could be the same way.
Maybe you are struggling. Perhaps the goals you set are out of reach. I feel the same way. In fact, I may have set pretty high expectations for myself. Will I obtain them? Not sure…
Anyway…people helping people is a fantastic thing.
If you are able to help someone during this season, go for it. Helping can be so many things, not just bathroom remodeling.
Helping or being helped? Does not matter because God’s grace and mercy can shine through in both situations.
