According to an online user. He said sometimes wonder how can heaven help someone, when the person can already help his or herself?..
The phrase should be change to HEAVEN HELPS THOSE WHO CANT HELP THEMSELVES.
Even in the bible heaven has always help those who cant help themselves, take the story of Elijah for example when he was being hunt, after killing those baal priest.
He went into hiding and God feed him through ravens because he wasnt able to help himself.
ASK YOURSELF DO YOU REALLY NEEDS GODS HELP
WHEN YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF.
