Greek Saying: 


Help Yourself

"Help yourself so God can help you."  

This saying is at least 15 centuries old. The great general Belisarius who served under the Byzantine emperor Justinnian is known to have said this. Belisarius would say that you cannot expect God to help you if you put your army in a situation where you can be defeated.

What this saying tries to express is a belief that you cannot expect God to help you if you do nothing to help yourself. You have to help yourself first and then God will naturally help you.
