How one individual with the help of others was able to overcome multiple obstacles that were preventing him from getting to Jesus and receiving what he needed. The story of Mark 2:1-12 provides us with an understanding that being desperate for Jesus may lead us to act in creative ways to reach Him and encouragement that the reward of reaching Him is worth the struggle.
