The Lame Man Healed
In Mark 2 we learn about a man who needed to be touched by Jesus. He was unable to walk, and even if he could have, the house where Jesus was talking was too packed to fit more people. Thankfully the man had some friends who were determined to get him to Jesus. They did some creative problem-solving and got him to Jesus. Jesus not only saved his sins, but also healed him! When you read this story, discuss the importance of getting the people we know close to God. When we get people close to God, He can touch them and meet their needs in a special way.
