Re:Verse passage – 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 (day two)
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. vs. 26
Learning the value of something is a good skill to have. We should be able to discern a good deal when making a purchase. We should know how to tell when something is beyond its expiration date, both literally and figuratively. These are good life skills. As they apply to the body of Christ things aren’t as cut and dried. Whereas we all need to know how we have been gifted and called. We should seek to find where will best fit the fellowship. What we cannot do is determine that someone doesn’t fit, doesn’t matter, doesn’t belong. We just don’t get that privilege. We can all grow in our walk if we will begin celebrating the myriad ways God has created the body of believers to work together. Whether that person is the senior pastor, the Sunday School teacher, or the individual greeting visitors in the parking lot each week; everyone matters. When we shine in how we are created, the body shines. Let us look for ways in this next thirteen weeks and beyond to shine.
