If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?  (1 Corinthians 12:17).

One of the most common negative feelings is that you don’t belong. This can crop up at school, at work, or in social settings. In its most negative form, this is a feeling of being unwanted or unneeded by those around you.

The one place a believer should never feel unwanted or unneeded is among other believers. In 1 Corinthians 12, God details how He has made each of His children to be a part of the Body of Christ.

Just as each part of the human body helps the entire body to do its work, each part of Christ’s body, the Church, helps the entire body to live and to serve Him. God teaches His people never to devalue their own or anyone else’s spiritual gift. Remind yourself that God has placed you exactly where you are so you may have the joy of serving Him.

Challenge for Today: Do you help others to feel at home in the church?
