Ask For Help to Be at Full Strength

December 22nd 2006

I came across a short story by Brian Cavanaugh that succinctly makes the point that there are times we all need to look to others to be at full strength.  Here’s Brian’s story:

One day a small boy was trying to lift a heavy stone, but he couldn’t budge it.

His father, passing by, stopped to watch his son’s efforts. Finally he said to his son: “Are you using all your strength?”

Exasperated, the boy cried, “Yes, I am.”

“No, you’re not,” said the father calmly. “You haven’t asked me to help you.”
