I went to the dentist Wednesday because an abscessed molar was causing a swollen lump, some discomfort, and a lot of itching. The dentist said the time to fill the cavity was a year ago, so I had him pull it out. I Corinthians 12 speaks about the parts of the body and how all of them are important to the functioning of the body. How many other problems was that abscessed tooth causing? It is often easier, more economical, and more efficient to take care of a need in the church body before it becomes abscessed.
