A better story happens when people in God’s churches move from being consumers to servants—when believers take action to help God write his story of redemption in this world. In Mark chapter two, the Bible describes how four friends took action to carry a paralyzed man to Jesus on a mat, doing whatever it took to overcome obstacles so the man could experience healing from Jesus. The friends’ bold actions of faith captured the attention of the crowd watching them, inspiring them to declare: ‘We've never seen anything like this!’ Today, God is still calling believers to “pick up a corner of the mat” by helping others move from brokenness to beauty. How can you use your resources (time, talents, finances, etc.) to love, serve, and give? What is the corner of the mat that God is calling you to pick up?
