RWC (6) - Room for Everyone

A teacher once said that the good thing about a rugby team is that there is room for every boy. The short chubby boys can be props. The tool skinny guys can be locks. The short skinny boy can be put at halfback. The fast skinny boys can play as wings. The good kicker can play at flyhalf. The boy who can tackle, but cannot kick can play in the centers.

For a rugby team to play well, every boy must be in his place, and do what he is good at.

This makes a rugby team a good image for the body of Jesus. Everyone can belong to the body. There is a place whether every person fits and is needed. The body functions best, when the different members work together in different ways for a common purpose.
