“Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.””
Mark 2:4-5 NIV

How many people that are paralyzed by their past, their mistakes and their sin have we failed to get to Jesus because of the difficulty? Cut through the barriers and get people to Jesus.

“A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus, begging to be healed. “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said. Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” Instantly the leprosy disappeared, and the man was healed.”
Mark 1:40-42 NLT

Are we moved with compassion for all those that need healing, inside and out? By the way, that's everybody. Are we willing to love the unlovely and touch the untouchable?

“But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.””
Luke 22:32 NLT

God not only wants YOU back, but he wants you back for OTHERS!

“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
Proverbs 16:9 NLT

I never actually understood this verse, until today. I never had a master plan for my life, I just went where the wind blew me, did what I had to do and helped where I could. I guess you could say my life has been a series of small, short-term plans. 

Today, I realized that the steps along the way were determined by God. Within each of those short-term plans, were opportunities to invest into others. 

All the while I was chasing an elusive plan, God was using me in my steps.

If we look to far ahead, we may stumble right over our God-given destiny and miss out on an extraordinary legacy.
