Our NT passage shows us that we sometimes fail to recognize our greatest need. The paralyzed man's friends had faith that Jesus could heal their friend of his paralysis, but what they didn't recognize was that his spiritual need was even greater than his physical need.
Maybe we think that our need of a job, or physical healing, or relief from stress, or mending of relationship is most important - and make no mistake, they are important needs and Jesus wants us to bring them to Him.
But maybe our greater need is salvation, or a willingness to forgive, or a determination to rid a specific sin from our lives, or practicing faith in God despite hard circumstances.
Jesus wants to meet our greatest needs first. I pray we prioritize the way Jesus did.
