Xerox. It is important to know that although we are joined together into one body, we are not Xeroxed copies of one another. God made us differently and he gives us different gifts. We must consider every part of the body as important (1 Cor 12:12-25). We must seek to avoid favoritism and we seek to love the most unlovely in our sight. If Christ laid His life down for me even while I was an unworthy enemy of His, how shall I not seek to lay down my life for other members in the church even if I may not have automatic liking for him because his character is very different from mine.
