Are you willing to be helped?

From the December 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


One evening, as my wife and I were going up the stairs with a crowd of people heading for a musical performance, a woman next to me stumbled and started to fall toward me. I instinctively put my hand under her elbow to prevent her from falling on the concrete steps, but she instantly pulled her arm away, saying nothing about the help I had been prepared to give her.
