The church is working well when everyone is working in accordance with their gifts. Today’s passage helps us see what a healthy church is like and challenges us to see our place in it.

The ‘battle of the sexes’ was never supposed to be a battle. Sin has made harmony really difficult, but if we listen to God men and women can honour one another and God as well.
