Daily Devotional “We Need Each Other”
January 21, 2022
“But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.”
Sometime ago I travel To a village, speaking at a church, a woman named Elizabeth who is blind served as my interpreter.
You can imagine the two of us on stage—me with my difficulty in walking and Elizabeth with her white cane.
During a break, someone placed an English language magazine on my lap. It looked like a good read, but with my Current situation, I couldn’t hold the periodical or turn its pages.
“Elizabeth,” I said, “how ’bout if you hold the magazine and turn the pages, and I will read out loud.
That way we can both enjoy it.” And that’s just what we did. I needed her; she needed me; and together we accomplished something that blessed both of us.
That is how the body of Christ should work! Our combined weaknesses become delightful strengths.
First Corinthians 12 describes how we all need each other, just as a physical body needs feet, hands, ears, and eyes to move forward.
If we isolate from other Christians, we impoverish them—and ourselves.
Lord, keep my mind from filling up with details about myself, my wants, my needs, my deadlines, and my schedule.
Remind me of those I might help today with the abilities and gifts you have given me. If someone needs a positive word or a listening ear, move me to take notice . . . and take the time to respond.
