THE BODY-LIFE SKIT

Posted via admin

Actors Here’s a skit for six characters based on 1 Corinthians 12. Each person who portrays a part of the body should wear a sign or T-shirt that identifies the part he is playing. The reader should have a Bible.
Characters:
The reader
The nose (shy, sneezes a lot)
The foot (wears big shoes)
The ear (wears earphones)
The eye (wears big glasses)
The head (acts conceited)

Equipment
Costumes
Action The skit begins with the body parts in a huddle.
Reader: I’ll be reading selections from 1 Corinthians 12. “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts.” (The body parts spread apart and begin showing off their individual talents as the Reader continues.) “And although all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Now the body is not made up of one part, but of many parts. If the foot should say
Foot: “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body.”
Reader: “. . . it would not for that reason cease to be a part of the body.”
Foot: Oh yes it would. I mean, I can go places, give senior citizens rides to church, and drive for Meals on Wheels. But I can’t give a lot of money like a hand could, or cook the best dish at the covered-dish supper like a hand could. Maybe I’m just not needed around here!
Reader: “And if the ear should say …
Ear: “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body.”
Reader: “. . . it would not for that reason cease to be a part of the body.”
Far: Oh yeah? I mean, I can hear and understand a good sermon pretty well, but I can’t seem to see places where anyone needs help like an eye could. What good is it to be able to hear and understand if you can’t see to do anything? Maybe I’m just not needed around here!
Reader: ‘If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? The eye cannot say to the hand . .
Eve: I don’t need you, hand! I mean, I’m the most important part around here after all. That’s pretty obvious. Anyone can see that without me, this body’s just stumbling around in the dark. What good are YOU, hand?
Reader: “Nor can the head say to the feet …
Head: Well, I don’t need any of you. I can think and reason and make all the important decisions without any help at all from you guys. I’m the brains of this outfit.
Reader: (At this point, all the parts of the body begin arguing with each other so much that the Reader pleads with them to stop. The Nose moves off to the side and begins to cry.) “On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. God has combined the members of the body.. . so that there should be no division in the body,” (The arguing gets progressively worse.) “but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.” OH, I GIVE UP! (Reader walks away exasperated.)
Ear: Hey, wait a minute. Listen! I hear someone crying. (Everyone finally gets quiet.)
Eye: Look, It’s (Use name of whoever is playing the nose.) Poor guy, I wonder what’s wrong.
Head: I’ve got an idea! We could go over there and find out.
Ear: Hey, I like the sound of that idea! Head: (acting proud) Of course it’s a good idea.
Eye: But how could we get there?
Foot: I could take you, I suppose. (There is general agreement. Everyone lines up behind the Foot, forms a train, and goes over to the Nose.)
Ear: (to Nose) We heard you crying and we’re kind of worried about you. Can we help somehow?
Nose: I don’t know. I get so lonely sometimes. I wish I had some friends. But who wants to be friends with someone whose greatest talent is sniffing out trouble!
Eye: Well, I don’t know about the rest of this crew, but it seems to me that we’ve got some trouble that needs sniffing out. (Everyone looks at the Head. Head looks sheepish.)
Head: Well, maybe you’re right.
Foot: You just come with us. We’re not perfect yet, but when we all work together, we can do a lot of good after all. (Body parts form a line with arms around each other’s shoulders.)
Reader: (stepping in front to read) “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ.”
All: And each one of YOU is a part of it!
