Some sea gulls in a fishing village that, for many years, fed on the scraps the fishermen left. When the fishing industry in this place closed, the sea gulls had forgotten how to gather food for themselves. They died of starvation.
The same principle applies to people. When we do things to keep them over-dependent, we destroy their growth and maturity. It's the same with God, he will bend the heavens to touch the earth to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves— such as paying the penalty for all our sins by dying on the cross at Calvary in our place to pay the penalty for all our sins—but, while he has promised to give us wisdom and guidance,he won't do for us what we can and need to do for ourselves.
