Commentary on the Gospel of
Lectio - Divina
Mark 2:1-12: Jesus heals a paralyzed man. Notice that the man says nothing. Jesus forgives the man’s sins. Controversy begins with the Jewish leaders.
The paralytic says nothing, yet Jesus heals him. Do the actions of the man’s friends tell Jesus something about him?
Church leaders need to know when a law obliges and when it does not oblige. Pray that church leaders and that all Christians may know the difference in a complicated society.
The friends of the man who was paralyzed went to much trouble for him, which signifies that they loved him. Let your actions today express your love for those closest to you.
