Read 1 Corinthians 12: 12-20
As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
Our four grandchildren are blessed to have their other
grandparents living close by. They pick them up from school,
take them to ball games, and watch them when their parents
go out on dates. Since my husband and I live several hours
away, we are more the pop-in, pop-out type of grandparents.
This has been difficult for me. I cannot participate in my
grandchildren’s lives as often as I would like.
Only recently have I realized that our role is no less
important even though it is different. In many ways, the
body of Christ is the same; we all have different roles. Some
of us are out front leading music, preaching, and chairing
committees. Others serve more behind the scenes, cooking
meals, working in the nursery, and decorating the sanctuary.
One position is not more
important than another.
God has called each
of us to different roles in
our families and in the
body of Christ. When we
embrace what God has
called us to, we can move beyond comparisons to find
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for the variety of roles in the body
of Christ. Help us to support each other as we serve you. In
Christ’s name. Amen.
