Helpful Co-Operation
1 Corinthians 12:20-25
But now are they many members, yet but one body.…

"I stood awhile ago and looked at a drinking-fountain. A marble angel, beautifully sculptured, stood pointing to heaven. Then came polished granite inscribed with gilt letters, and massive slabs of stone. But I noticed that the water came through a small brass pipe, and the people drank from an iron cup attached to an iron chain. And the marble angel pointing heavenwards would have done nobody any good but for the brass pipe and iron cup. Think if the pipe had said, 'If they do not make me of gold I will not belong to the thing'; or if the cup had said, 'I must be of silver, or I shall be ashamed to be there at all.' No, I thought I heard the music of the three — common water, common cup, common pipe — all co-operating to furnish the refreshing draught."
