Praise God

Our Bible verses tell us that some men came to Jesus with a man who was paralyzed. The men tried to take the man to Jesus, but “there were so many people that they could not find a way to Jesus. So they went up on the roof and lowered the crippled man down through a hole in the ceiling” (verse 19a).
First, Jesus said to the man, “Friend, your sins are forgiven” (verse 20b). Then Jesus told the man, “I tell you, stand up! Take your mat and go home” (verse 24b).
The man immediately stood up, picked up his mat and walked home. What else did the man do? Verse 25 says that he praised God. All the people were amazed, and they praised God, too.
You should be like the crippled man. Think about what God has done for you today. Has God given you food and a place to live? Praise Him! Has God given you strength and comfort? Praise Him! Has God given you salvation through Jesus? Praise Him! When you praise God, others will praise Him, too.
