Human Ears and Ankles

Human Ankle X RayMany individuals make up the household body of Christ. In the human frame, various body parts perform different functions in order to make the whole operate efficiently. A foot as the support to a leg differs from a hand or an ear. A hand may be able to manipulate a small delicate object like a pair of tweezers but it cannot hold up the whole body for an extended period of time like the feet. An athlete works the pommel horse, swinging her body in ever widening sweeps, all supported on her hands. How glad those wrists and fingers are to exit the performance and return to their normal duties without all that weight and stress!✞

Appearance and Role

A human EarThe role of some body parts is not apparent at first. Though the appearance of our ears is not particularly impressive, their job is vital to your body. They could feel depressed because they are not as large as our feet or cannot move like our arms or fingers. They may not be able to wiggle but their auditory messages and their sense of balance inform our brain as to what's going on around us. If our ears or balance fails, we could stagger and even fall. Ears are therefore important body parts.✞
