In Mark 2, we read about four guys who brought a paralyzed friend to Jesus. When they found that the crowd was too large for them to get close, they made a dramatic decision to tear a hole in the roof of the house where Jesus was speaking.
From the rooftop they were able to lower their friend into the room where Jesus was. They were committed to seeing their friend walk again. In their eyes, this was his greatest need.
What they failed to realize was that our felt need is not always our deepest need. What we want the most might not be what we need the most.
