Verse 22 lept out at me! The parts of the body which “seem” more feeble are necessary! I started to think of members of the Church who are feeble… perhaps they are not as strong a teacher or leader as others. Perhaps they are very shy or anti-social. Perhaps they are poor, widowed, divorced or mentally ill. The feeble ones are necessary… One reason may be because that is where we practice being like the Savior… helping those who truly need Him the most…
From my patriarchal blessing:
“I bless you that you will have a sensitivity to the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted, the down trodden and depressed. I bless you that you will be able to encourage them and lift them up and bring them to a higher station in life.”
I want to be aware of and help the feeble more in my life for they are necessary in the Kingdom of God!

One of the reasons the Jews did not believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah was because of the law in
The law states that anyone hung on a tree (or cross) is “accursed of God” therefore Jesus could not be the chosen one of God because he was obviously accursed of God by being crucified… This logic and reasoning is absolutely right by the Jews… Jesus was accursed of God, but not because of His own sins…
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed every one that hangeth on a tree:
Paul uses this law to explain, "yes he was accursed of God, because of us!" He took upon Himself our sins… Vicariously, the best among us became the worst among us and suffered an infinite atonement! He descended below all things...
