A Patchwork...

Jesus got them all to sit down in groups of fifty or a hundred—they looked like a patchwork quilt of wildflowers spread out on the green grass!
     Mark 6:39 - The Message

The definition of patchwork is:
something made up of an incongruous variety of pieces or parts; hodgepodge:
But what does incongruous mean: 
incongruous - out of keeping or place; not harmonious in character; lacking harmony of parts.
Sounds like the Body of Christ
We are this patchwork of people that come from different backgrounds - different places with different talents and abilities - that when thrown together in a group would seem out of place, inconsistent or not in harmony...
BUT, when JESUS is the center of that group of hodgepodge people...
We look like a…
Patchwork quilt of wildflowers spread out on the green grass...
Visualize that for a moment...                    
Instead of being a mis-matched group of people
we become a work of beauty...
    a labor of LOVE.
He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.                                Ephesians 4:16
