Where's Your Head !

Tuesday, March 27

But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. If they were all one member, where would the body be?
I Corinthians 12:18-19

Jodene's group has been studying what it means to be members of the body of Christ. That when one member is not doing what they should be doing it makes the whole body disfunctional. So today we started this little behavior game. At the beginning of each Obasi day each person picks a body part that is a piece of a human puzzle,that they want to represent for the day. If they have a good day then they get to put their piece of the puzzle on the wall. If the whole body is completed then they each get a little reward.
Today two of our kids didn't get to put their pieces up. They didn't have horrible days, just not quite great. When we got done putting our pieces up, we were missing a head and a mouth. The even funnier part was the kid who had the head, the reason he couldn't put the piece up was that he was kinda gone mentally all day. The second was the mouth and the person who had that part had used her mouth to hurt someone. It was so God revealing His word to us in a living example. The puzzle just looked plane odd without a head and a mouth. The rest of body really can't function without a head. The rest of the us had to keep going back and bringing him up to speed, which took extra time and disrupted the flow.
Our actions really do affect the rest of the body.
We have had two girls that are on leave of absence for behavior problems. It was really hard telling them they must step away for a while, but they were disrupting the whole body. No one could function properly. During their absence, our hearts grieve for their decisions, but it has been an absolute joy to have the body functioning as one again. The kids that are here are trying so hard to do the right thing. Our days are filled with learning and enjoying God and each other again. I enjoy mentoring again, and see God again.
