Scripture

The body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything?

But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”

1 Co 12:12

Prayer

Help me to understand and appreciate the delicate nature of how we all fit together. Show me my unique calling to serve others. Let me grasp how incomplete my life would be without the interaction with other people. Even the friction I feel has a useful purpose in transforming me into your likeness.
