We Need Each Other
by Charles R. Swindoll
But now there are many members,
but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:20
Nobody is a whole chain. Each one is a link. But take away one link and the chain is broken.
Nobody is a whole team. Each one is a player. But take away one player and the game is forfeited.
Nobody is a whole orchestra. Each one is a musician. But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete.
You guessed it. We need each other. You need someone and someone needs you. Isolated islands we're not.
To make this thing called life work, we gotta' lean and support. And relate and respond. And give and take. And confess and forgive. And reach out and embrace.
