Romans 12:5 says, “So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another." In other words, the Bible is reminding us that we are never completely disconnected from one another. Those who have experienced a broken family or tragic loss can find solace in the larger, interconnected web of human beings that co-habitate the Earth. The issue with this line of thought is observed when we forget that everyone--not just those we live and eat with--are our family.
