“But God tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members suffers, all the member suffer with it; or one member is honored all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members.”
—1 Corinthians 12:24-27
