“On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary” (1 Corinthians 12:22).

While we are tempted to ascribe greater esteem to those public gifts utilized in leading corporate worship, it is the “behind-the-scene” gifts that prove to be indispensable. In fact, the strength of Paul’s statement is that they are “more necessary.” The merit of our individual grace gifts are not to be debated, but utilized as opportunities arise. The collective effort of our “lesser” gifts will accomplish more than the one utilizing his “greater” gift.
