In the story of healing the paralytic, there were two categories of people around Jesus; those who were ‘hearing God’s words’ (they think they are close to God and listening to the Word!) but indirectly ‘blocking’ the needy from reaching God. The second category is those who helped the paralytic to reach God; those who are helping the needy to reach God.
Who are we?
Are we blocking (directly or indirectly) the needy from reaching God?
Are we helping the ‘needy’ to reach God to receive healing and blessings?
