For j as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,
so we, k though many, l are one body in Christ, and individually m members one of another.
n Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if o prophecy, p in proportion to our faith;
if q service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;
the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; r the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with s cheerfulness.
