Daily Devotion: The Incomplete Man

Bible Reading: I Corinthians 12:11-27

Key Verse: Verse 14 – "For the body is not one member, but many."

Key Words: For the body is not one member, but many

No one is a whole chain. Each one is a link. But take away the link and the chain is broken.

No one is a whole team. Each one is a player. But take away one player and the game is forfeited.

No one is a whole orchestra. Each one is a musician. But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete.

No one is a whole play. Each one is an actor. But take away one actor and the whole performance suffers.

No one is a whole church. Each one is a member. But take away one member and we all hurt.

No one is a whole staff. Each one is a part. But take away the math teacher and education is lessened.

No one is a whole. While we need you, you need us. We need each other.

So why, then, do we who need each other sometimes attempt to hurt the link that helps hold the chain together? Note these words in Romans 12:10, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another.”

The Wall Street Journal ran the following article in the format below. I found it interesting. I trust you will as well.

How important
are you?
More than
you think.
A rooster
minus a hen
no baby chicks.
Kellogg minus
a farmer
no corn flakes.
If the nail
factory closes,
what good is the
hammer factory?
The cracker factory
is enhanced by
the cheese factory
and vice versa..
Just as Rogers
needed Hammerstein,
you need someone, and
someone needs

What to do:
✞ We do need each other; but we need God most of all.
