Who knew that a metatarsal was so important?!?!!!For that matter, who even knows what a metatarsal is???
And this is exactly my point. If you’ve ever broken your toe, you’ll know that a metatarsal (toe bone) is super important & helpful for ambulatory ease ,)
Translation: if you want to walk without pain, don’t break your toe!
The same principle holds true in the Body of Christ. Every person is important & plays a vital role, regardless of how visible or invisible they may be. So let’s not compare ourselves to one another because we each play a unique & essential role. Some of us are spleens, eardrums, corneas, colons & clavicles. If you’re a neuron, you’re every bit as vital as a duodenum, albeit entirely different.
Let’s never belittle nor minimize our place or the role others play throughout the Body of Christ!You’re essential!!
Chips are fun things to think about. Chips can be potatoe chips, game or gambling chips, wood chips & lots more. At the core meaning of the word “chip”, is the idea of part of a whole or a fragment. And Jesus is the glue that brings all of the fragments & pieces of our lives into a semblance of completion & whole. When I think about the pieces, parts & “chips” of my life, I can get discouraged & even overwhelmed.
But I love what Paul says at the end of Col 1:17, in Him all things hold together! So let’s bring to Jesus all the broken pieces & chips in our lives so He can make us well & whole 🙂
