1 Corinthians 12:20-25

But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

Sin embargo, hay muchos miembros, pero un solo cuerpo.  Y el ojo no puede decirle a la mano: “No te necesito;” ni tampoco la cabeza a los pies: “No los necesito.”  Por el contrario, la verdad es que los miembros del cuerpo que parecen ser los más débiles, son los más necesarios;  y las partes del cuerpo que estimamos menos honrosas, a éstas las vestimos con más honra. Así que las partes que consideramos más íntimas, reciben un trato más honroso,  ya que nuestras partes presentables no lo necesitan. Pero así formó Dios el cuerpo, dando mayor honra a la parte que carecía de ella,  a fin de que en el cuerpo no haya división, sino que los miembros tengan el mismo cuidado unos por otros.

Sometimes we think everyone in the church should be just like us. What makes us the right ones? Everyone in the church body has their place and their uses. No matter what you consider their downfalls, they are needed. Do we, instead of looking at their downfalls, look in the mirror at our own downfalls? We are one body and the body has many members, none of whom are the same, but we need each other. If you are the nose, you still owe respect to the little finger.
