1 Corinthians 12:20-25
But now are they many members, yet but one body.…
"It was only the other day," says one, "I noticed a lofty hill, crowned with a sturdy and thick wood. 'How often,' I reflected, 'have the proud tops of those trees shaken off "the injuring tempest!" In many a storm they have battled nobly, and conquered. Had these trees been scattered over the surrounding hills, each separate and alone, these noble branches would long ere this have been broken and peeled by the pelting of many a storm. The rushing wind would have long ago twisted and split these exposed trunks, or would have carried them down into the valley beneath. At present they shelter and sustain each other, bidding defiance to the tempest.' I noted down the thought, as illustrative of the benefits of church-fellowship."
