That there should be no schism
(ina mh h scisma
). Purpose of God in his plan for the body. Trouble in one organ affects the whole body. A headache may be due to trouble elsewhere and usually is. Have the same care
(to auto merimnwsin
). The very verb merimnaw
used by Jesus of our anxiety ( Matthew 6:27 Matthew 6:31
). Paul here personifies the parts of the body as if each one is anxious for the others. The modern knowledge of the billions of cells in the body co-working for the whole confirms Paul's argument.
