Here is where all of that hits a wall for me…other people. This past Sunday we looked into the lives of four nameless men who set aside everything that had to do with themselves and put their focus on someone else. In Mark 2:1-12 we see a story of how Jesus healed a paralytic man. This is not an unusual thing to read in the gospels. You can start in Matthew and just look at the heading above different sections and see story after story of Jesus healing people and raising the dead. What sets this story apart is those four nameless men who put this paralytic’s physical and spiritual need above their own and went to great lengths to help a crippled man who could not help himself. They brought this man to the only One who could help him. They truly had a burden that called them to action.
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. John 4:35b
