And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.—Mark 2:4
They counseled together on what to do next—how they could bring the man unto Jesus Christ for healing. The work to assist Jesus Christ in saving souls, at least for them, was never too demanding. They came up with a plan—not an easy one, but they acted on it.—Chi Hong (Sam) Wong
This Day in Church History
1857: Thomas B. Marsh, a former president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, speaks to a group of Saints shortly after his return to the Church, apologizing for his previous behavior and asking for the Saints’ fellowship.
1965: The U.S. Government designates Nauvoo, Illinois, as a National Historic Landmark.
1980: Latter-day Saint missionaries enter the African nation of Kenya for the first time.
Who has metaphorically broken down some of the roofs in your own life? How have they blessed you?
