The Bible is full of inspiring stories from Job to Jonah. I have to remind myself to look at the examples of faith in simple stories, too. For example:
Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.
The man and his friends dug through a roof to get closer to Jesus. I wonder if it was he who asked his friends to do such a thing. Maybe his friends decided to do it. I think it is cool that we do not always have the answers, but sometimes it also frustrates me. It forces us to think and reflect.
I believe its purpose is to get us to reflect on our lives. Though I pray often and have been praying more and more, I realize that maybe I don’t do nearly enough. Maybe I don’t have that kind of passion to get closer to God.
Does it inspire you? What can you do?
Thank you, God, for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,
