Series: RETHINKING CHURCH
Last year, people in the United States spent $11.7 billion dollars in their search for self-improvement. We are all searching for help. Help for our problems. Help to become what we aren’t. Help to become more than we are. So we read books, follow blogs, watch videos, join gyms, attend seminars…
In the words of Dr. Phil, “How’s that working for you?” Are you happier, thinner, richer, wiser, hotter? Finally ready to take on the world with your newly elevated self-esteem?
The comedian George Carlin once said he went into a book store and asked a sales woman, “Where’s the self-help section?” She said, “If I tell you, it will defeat the purpose.”
The search for help. Anyway you look at it, we want it and need it. Jesus not only offered help, He gave it. This Sunday we’ll take a look at the help He can give.
