The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body.
The eye can never say to the hand, "I don't need you." The head can't say to the feet, I don't need you. If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? How strange a body would be if it had only one part?
If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it and if one part is of it, all parts are glad. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad. All of you together are Christ's body and each of you is a part of it.
