Thoughts on Today’s Verse

From the words of the Lord Jesus, we can see that God created everyone and gave them different missions, different talents and calibers, all of them have appropriate positions. God’s words say, “The functions are not the same. There is one body. Each does his duty, each in his place and doing his very best, every spark of enthusiasm a flash of light, seeking maturity in life, thus will I be satisfied.” Everyone has their own strengths and advantages. As long as we are able to obey the Creator’s sovereignty and arrangements, and do not blindly envy or belittle others, and view ourselves correctly, then we can all play our roles and strengths in the right place, to fulfill the duties of a created being, and live out a meaningful life.
