Luke 5:19 (NKJV) “And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus.”


Luke 5:22-25 (NIV) 22Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? 23Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 24But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 25Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.”

What will desperation drive you to do in a time of need for yourself or a loved one? Are you one who cares deeply for others or stands by and laughs at people’s painful situations? These men in Luke chapter five were moved with compassion, and they did whatever it took to bring him to Jesus.

Hebrews 13:15-16 (NIV) 15“Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Desperation has driven people to do many negative things to themselves and others. Let’s do good when we find a need or just an act of kindness so that someone may feel loved in Jesus’ name.

Declaration: I will do what brings me the most satisfaction in life, helping others in need, in Jesus’ name.
