40 Days of Lent | Day 14: Faith & Friendship

Daily Scripture Reading: Luke 5:17-26

“And when he saw their faith, he said, ‘Man, your sins are forgiven you.’”  Luke 5:20 (ESV)

Have you ever had a friend care for you so much that his or her faith carried you through a hard time? Have you ever been that friend to someone else?

In today’s Scripture some men carried their friend—paralyzed, hopeless, and desperate for healing—to see Jesus. When they couldn’t find a way, they dug a hole through the roof to lower their friend to Jesus! That required strong faith and strong friendship. And Jesus recognized that.


If you know of someone whose situation seems hopeless, be the friend whose faith can carry them to Jesus. Stop and pray for them. Send a text to let them know they aren’t without hope. If you’re the one feeling hopeless, reach out to a friend and ask them to pray for you.
