What a great cartoon about the self-help mania that permeates bookstores! We’re not against people wanting to better themselves, and we shouldn’t mock those who think they need help. But is that what life is all about? Self-improvement? Success? Having your best life NOW?

According to Jesus, it is when we lose ourselves that we find ourselves. And that kind of biblical Screenshot 2015-11-07 13.24.29losing begins with acknowledging our need of a Savior. Someone outside ourselves. Someone who can do for us what we can’t do for ourselves!

If you are a Jesus-follower, aren’t you glad that He didn’t wait for you improve yourself, or better yourself, or become a new you, before He stepped in and saved you? But He’s not into just improving us, but making us like Himself! Somebody needs to write some GOD-HELP books, don’t you think? Oh, yeah. They have already. It’s called the B-I-B-L-E!
