1 Corinthians 12:12–31
14 For athe body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason 1any the less a part of the body.
16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason 1any the less a part of the body.
20 But now athere are many members, but one body.
22 On the contrary, 1it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary;
25 so that there may be no 1division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is 1honored, all the members rejoice with it.
29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of 1miracles, are they?
30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not ainterpret, do they?
31 But aearnestly desire the greater gifts.
And I show you a still more excellent way.
