Unity and Diversity

Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a.

Here, we continue with Paul’s celebration of the diversity within the body of Christ and his assertion that unity within that diversity is an ideal for which we should strive. He also gives us a glimpse of God’s kingdom, where the weak are viewed as indispensable, the least honorable are treated with honor, and the least respected are treated with respect.

In what ways have you found that to be exhibited in our church? How could we do a better job of practicing that?

In prayer, thank God for the gifts of those who might otherwise go unnoticed in our community of faith.
