Pastor Brandon Hodge brings a message on self-giving, loving friendship looking at the story in Luke 5 of the man on the mat.
Brandon says, "When I think of the paralyzed man, I can’t help but think he had spent years building relationship with the men who, in his moment of need, carried him to Jesus, leading to his healing, his forgiveness, and a deeper flourishing."
He reminds us that relationships are not built overnight. Rather, it’s about forming habits. What is one small step you can take in the right direction this week? Next week? The week after that?
