Have you ever thought about how important your little finger is? Your pinky finger actually does a lot more than you think.
According to medical professionals, losing your pinky could mean losing up to fifty percent of your hand strength. While your thumb, index finger and middle finger do most of the intricate work, your pinky teams up with your ring finger to provide power to the hand.
Who would have thought that your little finger was so important?
In the body of Christ, we have “pinky finger” members as well. They may see themselves as not important, since they are not able to sing, preach, teach, or administrate.
But every member is important in Christ’s body. In fact, many times it is these “pinky finger” members that provide strength to the church just by being there.
They are the ones that provide encouragement through a hug or comforting word. Or they might be the ones who do the “dirty work” of cleaning and taking care of the church property.
1Corinthians 12:22 says:
“Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:”
The truth is that all believers have spiritual gifts that they can use to build up the body of Christ. It doesn’t matter how small you may think your gifts are—God’s church needs all the “pinky finger” members to do their part.
