Self-help Groups?!

If you are invested in helping yourself, where does “Group” fit in?

Please don’t misunderstand me, the support and counsel of caring “we’ve been where Help on keyboardyou are” individuals is often be a God-send (literally). Consider these verses:

And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. – Eccl. 4:12

Where there is no guidance, the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory. – Prov. 11:14

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. – Col. 3:16

Yet, at the same time, the Psalmist advises us:

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. – Ps. 121:1,2

And, in Proverbs 1:7, the wisest man who every lived said, The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Self-help? Never! But help from Him? Always!
