Have you ever experienced a tragedy (big or small) and found that someone that you love was there for you? How did it make you feel when that person was there to meet your needs? In the passage you are about to read, the paralyzed man had to humble himself. As you read, think about how he showed humility. Also, take note of ow his friends expressed sacrifice.
When times are tough, there are two sides to experiencing Christ through community. On the one hand, you may be the one that helps someone, giving your time, talent, and/ or treasure. On the other hand, you may need to be humble enough to receive the help. Regardless of your situation, God loves it when His hurting children come to Him for help. Spend some time evaluating your heart and life.
Think of some ways to experience Christ through community during difficult circumstances.
