Chrildren bible 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 10 - 11 - 12 made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, 7 "Why does this fellow talk like that?8 Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said "Why are you thinking these things? 9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'?
10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. . . . " He said to the paralytic. 11 "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home." 12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"
Some people believe that living the scatting life is dangerous, because without an exact plan, we may get terribly sidetracked. The truth is, scat singers often do get sidetracked. They take long solos that last minutes in songs, but they always know where the song is ultimately headed, to a final chorus, and then a final note.
If we look at the scriptures, we see Jesus was the same way. Jesus is always so concerned with getting to Jerusalem. There is something there that he has to get to. But many times along the way he gets sidetracked by many different things, healings, festivals, crowds, whatever it might be, and Jesus seems to utilize a touch of improvisation. He doesn't mind getting side tracked for a minute in order to experience beauty. This does not come without risk, but there is always the possibility of beauty.
