A very, very helpful post on Leadership Freak by Dan Rockwell.
Helping should be an innate aspect of life as a follower of Jesus.
Rockwell observes that “The goal of helping is enabling, not more helping.”
We should be helpers, and not ignore those in need, particularly those we have particular responsibility for.
But before stepping in constructive help never offers help “until you ask, “What have you tried?”
Useful helps “people find meaning in difficulty.”
This can assist them in developing the perspective by which they can lean into challenging situations in ways that grow resilience and competency, rather than cement a sense of inadequacy and dependence.
