For i as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
so j we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is k given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us l prophesy in proportion to our faith;
or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; m he who teaches, in teaching;
n he who exhorts, in exhortation; o he who gives, with liberality; p he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, q with cheerfulness.
