whole were hearing, where were the smelling?"
And he goes on to say: "The eye cannot say to the hand, I have no
need of thee; or again the head to the feet, I have no need of you," and
further along: "God hath tempered the body together, having given more
abundant honor to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism
in the body; but that the members should have the same care for another.
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer for it; or one mem

parts or members work together in harmony, "that there should be no
schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one
for another." c
Each of us will have his hands full organizing himself and getting him
self inlo harmony with others, without forgetting himself and trying to or
ganize and reform his neighbor. If we do what We can to reform and uplift
ourselves and grant the other fellow the same right, we'll make better
headway than by each of us trying to reform and uplift the other fellow.
