Friday, 17th Jan., 2014: Inspirations from the Gospel (Mk. 2:1-12)

The Paralytic was in a terrible condition where he could not help himself. But he had good friends who knew what he needed and how to go about it. They took him to Jesus and when they encountered difficulties getting to him through the large crowds, they had to go through the roof. We see in these four friends, a desperate need to assist their friend in difficulty and Jesus as master confirmed their faith. At the end, the paralytic received both the forgiveness of his sins and the restoration of his health.

Today, most people around us are like this paralytic who because of their terrible state cannot help themselves. They have friends who sometimes neglect them. Unfortunately too, some friends make their conditions worse by the kind of treatment they give them often times by attributing their conditions to be the consequences of their previous actions. Do you have such people in terrible conditions among you? They could be drug addicts, sinners, patients of terminal illnesses, the ignorant, etc. What effort do you make to assist them? You can assist the medically ill receive adequate medical attention, instruct the ignorant, convert sinners, counsel addicts, etc. As you move about your endeavour today, do not forget those you are obliged to assist. May the Lord bless you as you do this. Good morning and Happy Friday.
