Remember, if you ever need a helping hand it’s at the end of your arm. (Audrey Hepburn, late British actress)

An attitude of entitlement seems to be a growing trait today. We think the world owes us something. Some folks always seem to be looking for a “free lunch.” Hepburn, however, encourages an attitude of self-help. Of course, we want to help those who truly need assistance, but maybe that should not be in a hand out but a hand up.

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them. (Proverbs 3:27)
