The Back of the Church
“On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor…” (1 Corinthians 12:22-23)
The body is made up of a composite of parts – some more honored than others. The eyeball, the fingers, and the ear seem to receive a lot of honor because their functions are easily recognized and visible. Other parts receive less honor. When was the last time you thought about your back muscles or your plantar fascia? Yet, each of these parts become VERY important if they are injured.
Some Christians are the backs of the church; they just are consistently, dependably holding everything up. Others are like the plantar fascia (the bottom of your foot); they keep things moving and smooth out all the little bumps along the way.
Don’t forget that the most integral work is often the work least honored. You are needed. Don’t undervalue the work you and others do.
