a beautiful inspiration or an evil inspiration

Is this
a beautiful inspiration or an evil inspiration?

But where there was a will, there was a way. To
the four friends, a beautiful inspiration arose, as the sun rises in
the east. What did they do next? Look at verse 4. "Since they could not
get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof
above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed
man was lying on." In doing so, they offended many people. The owner
of the house might have called the police. Other patients who lined up
surrounded them to punish them. But to the friends, it did not matter
what might happen to them.
They say that a friend in need is a friend
indeed. They were indeed beautiful friends to the paralytic. Their
compassionate hearts toward him were flaring intensely, so intensely
that they could not stop themselves from climbing up and digging a hole
through the central part of another's roof and lowering the paralytic in
front of Jesus. They brought him to Jesus.
Though paralysis was known
to be incurable, it did not matter to them. They brought this man to
Jesus believing that Jesus would make him whole. They had a great faith
in Jesus' healing power. May God give this kind of faith to each of us.
