A computer’s keyboard is a highly useful tool—provided everything is working properly.
But what if one of your hands is in the wrong position? All of a sudden, everutjomg ;ppls dofferemt.
Or what if one of the keys doesn’t work? Whn that happns, th whol pag looks lik this.
Or suppose a key made the wrong letter when you pressed it? (I remember having an old typewriter that sometimes did this.) Imagine if every time you hit “s” it typed “d” instead. It dure would medd thingd up.
A keyboard only produces the proper result if everything is in its place, doing its job. The same is true in any relationship in life, including families (Ephesians 5:22 - 6:4) and local churches (Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31). They work best when we each fill our roles as God intended.
