Gimme a spot, bro!

“Rather the pain of discipline, than the pain of regret.” - Bob Andrews

When weight lifting the spotter (the person watching over the lifter) is vital to the strength gains of the lifter.  The spotter’s duty is to protect the lifter from hurting himself by dropping the weight; and also to propel the lifter to push himself through pain.  With a spotter the lifter can do more than he could do on his own.  Gimme a spot, bro!  In a spiritual sense, God isn’t all that different than a spotter.  We need God’s protection, sometimes from ourselves.  When we are weak we also need God to give us the strength that propels us through pain.   As Christians we can’t begin to grow without God.  

I can do all things through him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13, ESV).
