The Whole Body

Can an ear survive by itself? Would it still hear the cry of the unborn? Will the cry of the needy reach it?
How can the ear hear without a head? If it could, would we know What it heard?

And what of the hands that serve so well? Will they work cut off from the body? Will they prepare a dinner? Or give to those in need?
Will hands feel, reach, And touch without the rest of the body?
Imagine your foot laying on the floor? Can it go to visit the sick of its own accord? Or go the hurting world? Or maybe walk with the elderly?
No, the body only works When it is connected with the rest of the body. The arm, the leg, the hands, or ears Are nothing by themselves. They are dead and useless Like a rotting tree.
 So in Christ we all need each other To connect with each other For surely, the arm is useless without the ears and mouth. And likewise, the ears by themselves
Can do nothing but hear.
