Head: I bless The Lord that you are improving been supplying you with good thinking capacity to run well,
Leg: oh, are you serious? Do you mean you are the one who have been helping me ? Oh you are kidding Mr. Head, have always learnt to survive doing things on my own,
( Mr. Hand who have been listening to the conversation between the Head and the Leg)
Hand: Wait a minute Leg, what do you mean by saying you always do things on your own? Who put socks and shoes on you last time?
Leg: aaah, aaah, aaah ( Leg laughing) Mr. Hand you always know I can do without the shoes and the socks but still function.
Hand: Are you serious Mr. Leg, when you run who help you increase your speed, I always flip myself over and over when you run to give you balance motion,
( Mr. Nose entering into the scene)
I am mad, am mad of you Mr. Leg, you are ridiculous!
Leg: Aggg! When will other people learn to do things on their own. All the time all the time they need others, me recently have learnt to survive and do things on my own.
Mr. Nose: EEh! Eh! Mr. Leg , where are you headed with this conversation? Did you not use me last time to smell that food and you quickly hasten your leg there?
Leg: What brings you in this conversation Mr. Nose? Have you ever learnt to mind your own business?
Mr. Nose: Mr.Leg I think this is my business too, am part of this house and am mandated to say something,
( Mr. Mouth enters the door)
Mr. Mouth : What is going on here? Why are people fighting and sad?
Mr. Head: We just find it ridiculous that Mr. Leg is claiming to be achieving and having great success on his own that he doesn’t need us to function. What do you think Mr. Mouth?
Mr. Mouth: Me I will play it neutral in this case, I won’t be against anyone; you know Mr. Head ,I like eating and talking and I always need the help of the Leg to get some delicacy to eat, so I don’t want to destroy that relationship .
( Mr. Head is crying)
Mr. Head: hihi, hihi, hiyiyiyi, This is unbelievable , how can you say something like that Mr, Mouth?
( Mr. Ears enters the door)
Mr. Ears: I heard you guyzs speaking loud from a far some crying, what is wrong today?
( everybody is staring in agony, and finally Mr Hands speak)
Mr. Hands: We got a dilemma here Mr. Ears, since Mr. Legs worn that Olympic medal, he has been acting around funny, he thinks he can make it on his own and all this time he hasn’t been in need of our help to succeed ,
Mr Ears: That is very Sad, but you know I don’t like meddling on other people’s business , you know last time Mr. Leg worn the Award I heard the applause in the Stadium and our National Anthem was sung, oh I was so happy?
Mr. Hands: You too, you take sides with Mr Legs, unbelievable oh! I never knew you were like this Mr. Ears.
Mr. Ears: ( to Mr. Hands) Thank God that you now know me.
Mr. Head: Wait a minute, this conversation now is not becoming fruitful ,
( Mr. Thigh enters the house)
Mr. Thigh : What is going on here?
Mr. Legs: ( noticing the part of the body that supports him to run) , Nothing Mr. Thigh, nothing of importance that concerns you?
Mr. Head: He is lying, he is lying, let him say the Truth,
Mr. Hand: Let me save him the Truth by speaking it, can you imagine Mr. Thigh the current success Mr. Leg been having belongs and was attributed by him alone!
Mr. Thigh: This is serious , am kind of lost what you are talking about Mr. Hand. Can you explain further.
Mr. Hand: Mr. Leg claims that he doesn’t need us no more to succeed that he works and achieve on his own.
Mr. Thigh : Oh is that the case ? I will rather be amputated than work with a prideful , jealous , self centered fellow.
Mr. Head: What are you talking about Mr. Thigh , you know I can’t endure that pain during amputation, I hope you are not serious .
Mr. Thigh: Serious I am Mr. Head, you know I don’t need this fellow by name Mr. Leg especially with this kind of character he has. He need to be out and survive own his own, then us the rest of the body we shall see how further he will go.
Mr. Mouth: That can’t happen Mr. Thigh, or else we are gonna fight here,
Mr. Thigh: If that is the case , am going to stop working and functioning too until that Leg is cut off from me, it is better to endure the pain for a moment than to live in the same house with a fellow like Mr. Leg.
( the whole house enter into morning and crying, the parts of the body are crying of the pain, and the loss they will have if Mr. Leg will have to go)
Mr. Hand: (Weeping) Me I can’t endure that pain, please Mr. Leg you need to apologize of your arrogance and seriously repent before this goes further.
Mr. Head: Me also I can’t endure the pain, you know the pain during amputation first reach me before it is is distributed to the rest of the body? Please , Please Mr. Leg, swallow your pride and apologize, repent especially to Mr. Thigh, you know he has been your friend for a long time and your helpmate.
Mr. Leg : Let me think about it.
The Rest of the body shouted out: There is no time to think about it Mr. Legs!!!!!!!!!!………,,,,,,,,,,,…..?,,,?????
1 Thessalonians 5:12-15
We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work.
Be at peace among yourselves. And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.
Romans 12:3-8, 10-21
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Love one another with brotherly affection.
Outdo one another in showing honor.
Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.
Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.
If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Who is wise and understanding among you?
By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exists ,there will be disorder and every vile practice.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;
that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.
1 Peter 4:1-11
Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.
For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry.
With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you; but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers.
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
