Get your equipment right.
Sure you can probably lift that person using a rope tie around their waist, but it’ll be far more effective if you use a proper gait belt that was made for that purpose.
Sure you can probably remember all her pills and all the different times through the day that she needs to take them - for awhile. Until you do it for so long that it’s routine, and now are you remembering today or yesterday? It’s far better to rely on a pill minder and a calendar to keep appointments straight, too.
Sure you can crab walk him to the bed and plop him down, but far safer to learn how to do a proper transfer.
So many other pieces of equipment we use that I’m not sure how we’d do without now. Because the right equipment is priceless.
That made me think: I need the right equipment as a Christian too. The Bible, good fellowship at a vibrant, loving church, the warmth of family and friends. These are equipping us. Sometimes we try to do without, take shortcuts, use shoddy replacements for proper equipment. This is when people get hurt, though. Same spiritually. When we use shoddy replacements for the equipment God tells us to use, we could get hurt.
Use the right equipment.
