As I write this lesson, it is springtime. In the area where I live, that means it is time for high school musicals. My son Steven is a cast member in George Gershwin’s Crazy for You. This is Steven’s third musical. I never cease to be amazed at the talent and energy we witness in the production of one of these musicals. Young men and women with minimal training in singing, acting, and dancing prior to the rehearsals give amazing performances. What I have seen over the years is that there are “sleepers” in every high school class; there are young people who have wonderful talent that gifted teachers are able to recognize and coax into the open.
Something else that always strikes me about these musicals is the number of people required to put on a successful production—and all these different people must work in harmony. Most visible is the large cast of young people with a variety of acting, singing, and dancing talents. There are the musicians in the orchestra pit. There are those who build the sets, control the lights and sound, sell the tickets, and raise the money. There is also the director whose vision and focus are so essential to the performance. A successful high school musical shows what can be done when people with many different talents work together with energy and enthusiasm to achieve
a common goal.
In our Bible Lesson, Paul wrote about how it is that each member of the body of Christ has received gifts for ministry from the Spirit for the good of all. When we work together toward the common goal of serving Christ under the guidance of the Spirit, we can do great things for God.
