“Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.” -Jim Rohn
Recently an ailing shoulder inhabilitated me so that I couldn’t workout at the gym effectively. My shoulder wasn’t just a shoulder problem, it also affected whether my chest, back, biceps, and triceps could perform the workout. Never before did I realize more vividly that the body is connected! Similarly the church (and the people in it) is the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12-26); we are a team. I’ve learned from working in a church that when one person on the team hurts then it can affect how the rest of the team performs. Wherever you are a part of a team—school, church, or work—decide that when someone is hurting, you will be one to encourage the person so that they heal. You don’t just help the person; you help the entire team.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up... (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV).
