Reflection on a Saying of a Desert Christian: anonymous

A modern elder said: “Any man who thinks that he can solve his own problems is like a bird which intends to fly without wings.”

 

We human beings need each other. It’s as simple as that. For those of us who are Christians, we are not only part of the human race but we are also part of the Body of Christ.
 
We know how our own bodies work, that we need every piece in working order. The same is true for the Body of Christ, we need every piece in working order.
 
There is a great beauty when we fully participate in the Body. It is also liberating. We none of us have to do everything. We are each called to be our part of the Body and we only have to do that one bit as faithfully and in as holy a manner as possible.
 
Just think of it. We each have to do only our teensy weensy bit. But if each of us does just that much, collectively we will accomplish a very great deal.
