Maybe you’ve experienced this too. You offer to help someone…..and there’s that awkward moment…where they don’t accept your help..and then you feel bad for offering…
Happened at the grocery store yesterday. In line and there’s a guy that was dressed in fatigues…behind me in line with just a gallon of milk. I had a full cart of salad and mac and cheese.
I hesitated…I wanted to offer to help a soldier…here’s my opportunity! Finally got the guts up to ask if I could buy his groceries and get him out of the store quicker…he hesitated and got kind of embarrassed and said “no that’s okay.”
Oh man…maybe I did the wrong thing…I wish he would have let me do it.
Sometimes it’s good to accept someone’s offer for help…they want to help you…it makes both of you feel good.
Kind of like how God loves you. He offers you this thing called Salvation…forgiveness, and doesn’t ask for anything in return, accept your acceptance. That’s it. You don’t have to keep this list of rules to earn his love. You just say I believe, I accept.
"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it's a gift from God." Ephesians 2:8
