A Daily Devotion for Monday, August 10
verse 26: If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
I usually know when something has harmed me physically, because it hurts. Likewise, most illnesses have symptoms telling us something is wrong. As the Body of Christ, I need to be alert and aware to see when someone in our church family is needing help or is hurting in some way. Even though we are all a part of the body, we need to be looking out for, and be aware of, the other parts. I fall short here. As I write these words, I know there are probably many needs in our church family I am unaware of or not paying attention to. Where are those needs in our family? How do I become more aware and more active in addressing some of those needs?
Holy Father, I am part of the body of Christ. For that I am truly thankful. Help me, Lord, to find opportunities to help others in our church family. Amen
