The ego feels threatened by the idea of accepting help from anyone, with skin on or not. That is why we are to humble ourselves, be selfless, let the ego go. The Bible tells us to be meek. When one is meek they are not boastful, they are not directed by ego. Being meek is not being mousy, though I used to think so. I interpreted the term “meek” to describe a person with no will, no self respect, that allowed others to trample on their body and spirit. I missed the mark with that thinking, now I understand that the true meaning of being meek, as Jesus told us was a requirement for entrance into the Kingdom of God, is humble ourselves, to humble our egos.
