God made each of us unique, and He therefore expects each of us to make a unique
contribution in His service.
Consider: Xvxn though my typxwritxr is an old modxl,
it works quitx wxll xxcxpt for onx kxy. Xvxn though thxrx arx 46 kxys that work
wxll xnough, just onx not working makxs all thx diffxrxncx in lxgibility, corrxctnxss,
and xffxctivxnxss. Somxtimxs it sxxms that our group is somxwhat likx my typxwritxr,
not all thx kxys function propxrly. You think, "I am only onx pxrson. Thxy
don’t nxxd mx. I can slack and it won’t makx much diffxrxncx." But, you
sxx, Christ has madx us diffxrxntly. Xach of us is uniqux, and xach of us is
rxquirxd. It is writtxn, "God has arrangxd thx parts in thx Body, xvxry
onx of thxm, just as Hx wantxd thxm to bx." And also, "Thx wholx body,
joinxd and hxld togxthxr by xvxry supporting ligamxnt, grows and builds itsxlf
up in lovx as xach part doxs its work." So thx nxxt timx you think you
arx only onx pxrson and that your xffort is not nxxdxd, rxmxmbxr my old typxwritxr
and say to yoursxlf, "I am a kxy pxrson madx by God for a purposx and am
nxxdxd vxry much."
