Jesus has a crowd from all around the region coming to hear Him teach. The crowd is so large many people can’t even get to Him. A faithful group of friends take their paralyzed friend up onto the roof of the house He is in, and dig through the roof just to get their friend in front of Jesus in hopes of His healing.
How did Jesus respond? What do we learn about forgiveness? What do we learn about our responsibilities to our friends?
We also discuss talking to our children about sin and forgiveness, and not creating a fear in them about the judgment of God but the hope and peace of being His.
