There are two groups of people who will ask you for help.
The first group is those who always ask for assistance. They are constantly struggling. Perhaps they have never been able to live another way. Maybe it is because they like the attention it brings. There are people we know who will always have needs.
The second group is those who only ask because they are desperate. They genuinely need help, but they absolutely hate to ask for it. Perhaps they see asking for assistance as a sign of weakness. Maybe other people have failed them, and they do not want to rely on anyone again. Some people really need help but are the last people to ask.
One challenge as a Christian is to figure out what type of person you are dealing with and act accordingly.
