We studied Robin the Boy wonder last night during our Super Hero series. The big question was based on Robin being a side kick. Is being a side kick good or bad?
We spent some time talking about being a helper or the helpee, both are needed in life to make things worth living. Sometimes you might be the leader and other times the follower both are necessary.
We looked at two sets of scripture.. one from the Old Testament and one in the New Testament. They are as follows:
Genesis 2:18 God said, “it is not good for Man to be alone; I’ll make him a helper, a companion. God had the intent for man to have a helper in the form of a woman but I think we can extend that out a bit and say we need friends, supports and council. Those things are awesome really!
Hebrews 13:6 So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not fear, What can man do to me?” If God is my helper in life, how can I go wrong? He has sent me a helper in the Holy Spirit.
I challenged the group of students and leaders and now you… to look for two different people who you can help.
1. Which one of your friends need your help?
2. Who in your life (maybe co-worker, classmate, teammate) that you do not know well needs your help?
This is a tough one for sure. It is easy to help someone we know and like but what about people who don’t fit our social, economical or religious view points? They are the ones we need to reach out to and help.
So, I hereby challenge you to find two people to be a helper for… one you know and one you know you need to help.
God has blessed us with tons of people to help us and guide us, maybe it is your turn to pay it forward.
