Mystical Body Parts

Shoulder Blade

FingersThe various parts of the Mystical Body operate as one. Jane as an ear in the Body of Christ is a very thoughtful person who thinks things out carefully and always makes a positive contribution. Her skillful listening and attentive hearing help settle disputes between others. Bill as a hand is quite different as he is a doer rather than a talker. He responds generously and quickly to others' needs by mending a washer or carrying a bag of food to a needy family. God uses the differences between Jane and Bill to do his work more effectively.

Sacred Diary

Dimple on lady's chinAdrian Plass (1948- ) the British Christian author and speaker humorously considered this question of the different mystical body parts in his "Sacred Diary." "Anne started by saying that she thought she was probably a bit of dried skin on the elbow, but Edwin, bless him, said that he thought she was much nearer the heart than that." "Thynn said he was a left shoulder blade for some obscure reason, and Norma Twill said she thought she might be a dimple. Couldn't think what I was, and dismissed Thynn's assessment of me as a small, unimportant vein in the right foot." What body part would you be, do you think?
