The cliche is: “What goes around, comes around.” — This was the practice of the Egyptian farmers along the Nile River. In the spring the Nile would overflow it banks and flood the valleys. A farmer would then cast his seed on the top of the flood water. When the river receded back to it’s banks, the seed settled down in the rich soil that was left behind. Weeks later a bountiful crop was harvested.
The healing of the man sick of the palsy (like a stroke— paralyzed — unable to walk) is a picture of an unsaved man paralyzed by sin. The man was saved because of four men who brought him to Jesus. The same things it took to get this man to Jesus are the same things it takes for us today to people to Jesus.
