  1. Denise,
    I love the baking analogy…especially as another young baker who’s tasted all the ingredients separately lol. It’s in the coming together that we truly make a difference. Thank you for a wise and beautiful thought to start my Sunday…

  2. This is a great analogy… I understand needing others, coming together to grow in Christ, as this last month I’ve been home-bound unable to drive due to doctor’s orders. It’s a lonely state to be in and I greatly appreciate online devotions and such to keep me somewhat connected.
    Blessings, Heather

  3. Dense,
    Loved the baking analogy (since I just baked cupcakes, & pumpkin bars). Everyone in the body of Christ needs to fulfill their “job” or use their gifts to keep the body functioning. I can pray, write encouragement cards/letters, that is a necessary and needed job! I am not called to teach, evangelize, or be a missionary-yet there are many things I can do right here!!
    Have a blessed week!
