I have to wonder where God got the idea of feet.
I mean, feet are stange. Even those with ‘beautiful’ feet have to admit that looking at a bare foot without painted toenails can make one giggle.
Then you have the brain. Squiggly, shaky, all bunched together inside a nice bone helmet we call a skull, the brain controls our thoughts, our motions, our feelings, even the controls of our other organs.
The same God who made unimpressive feet made our awesome brain. What’s more, He made everything in our bodies work together.
God took it one step further as Paul points out in Scripture. 1 Corinthians 12:22-28-Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
Some of us may be feeble in nature like feet, but without feet how would one walk? People dislike thinking about the colon (the reason many refuse to follow doctor’s orders and have tests which require unpleasant preparations!) yet it is an essential part of the body in regulating waste. Even the colon was created by God to be beautiful.
God created all parts and organs to work together…and He expects His people to do the same. We are to rejoice with one another just as we mourn with others when they are suffering.
We are separate but equal.
Like but different.
True Christians are unique in that no matter what language, color, shape, or culture, we recognize that we are bound by the Lord Jesus in a love which has no equal.
No matter what our jobs in life; no matter where we live; no matter what language we speak; no matter our eye shape or skin color….Christians walk this earth together but never alone. We are united with one another and we are ONE BODY BEAUTIFUL!
