Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,15
so in Christ we who are many form one body,2 and each member belongs to all the others.
We have different gifts,3 according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying,4 let him use it in proportion to hisa faith.57
If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;68
if it is encouraging, let him encourage;7 if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously;8 if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
