All Are Important

running in the coldPeople sometimes ask me why I wear gloves when it’s chilly outside, even though I’m wearing short pants. I’ve discovered that when I’m exercising, my hands are the first part of my body to get cold.

I learned this lesson the hard way several years ago, when I went out for a long run on a cold day. By the time I got back to the house, my hands were so numb from the cold that I was almost unable to get the door unlocked! I could barely hold the key in my hands! While I fumbled to get a grip on the key, the rest of my body was getting colder also! Finally, I was able to insert the key into the lock and turn it to open the door. From that time on, I have always worn gloves to exercise outside in cold weather.

The Bible says that the church is like a body, and that all of its parts are important. Keeping that in mind, we should make a special effort to take care of one another’s needs. If one Christian suffers, it affects the others too.

“If one part suffers, every part suffers with it…”—1 Corinthians 12:26.

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”—Galatians 6:10.
