The human body has at least 20 body parts
that we don’t need. Wisdom teeth, body hair, goose bumps, male nipples…and
did you know that chimps and gorillas have a 13th rib? We humans normally have 12 sets, but about eight percent of us have
the extras. And did you know we have a third eyelid? It’s a tiny fold in the inner corner of the eye.
Well, when we get to Heaven, if we still wonder
about things, God may tell us the real reasons that we have those extra body parts. Meanwhile, don’t be a "wisdom
tooth Christian." There are more ways to be useful to the Lord than preaching, teaching, and those other where we say,
"Oh, I’d give anything if I could do such and such like so and so."
Jesus said, "I was hungered and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty
and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger and ye took me in; naked and ye clothed me; I was sick and ye visited me; I was in
prison and ye came unto me." When you do these to anyone, God counts it as to Him.
I once wrote a poem that could be a lesson:
"They’ve come to visit me…Me! Pale face, weak voice and all…feeling vulnerable and
small, and yet they cared to call. They’ve come to visit me.
They’ve sent a flower to me…they understand my disarray; they realize how long my day. And
they, not knowing what to say, have sent a flower to me!
They’ve said a prayer for me. They cared enough to stop and kneel…they’re interested
in how I feel. Surely this friendship is real. they’ve said a prayer for me.
