We have seen these signs before in restaurant windows and coffee shops where they usually are wanting applicants. They are normally posted at the front of the store or at the register so everyone can see it.
One place we should see this sign is on a person like a name tag. We always hide our help wanted signs when we need them the most. We don’t display it for all to see because we live in a world where if we don’t seem perfect or have it all together, we aren’t accepted. We are constantly struggling with something, but we don’t ask for help.
Recently, I had a friend share her sin struggles with me that she dealt with several months ago. I had no idea that she was going through any of that and I had even seen her shortly after she had been struggling. It made me realize we all hide parts of our lives from people we think will treat us differently or look at us differently. I know it’s tough to not worry about what people think or what they will say, but it’s necessary.
I have always struggled with letting my walls down and being honest with others around me because I have put my trust in people and they let me down. College taught me that you have to let walls down in order to grow as a person and grow in all relationships.
Seeking out help is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strengthen. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are less of a person because of your struggle. Fight to overcome your struggles and find others who can help you. If you have struggled with a sin in the past, be willing to help someone who is currently struggling with that sin. We all need help sometimes, but most of us are too stubborn to get the help we need.
