Team sports have individual effort. When one makes a good play we all rejoice. When one fails to make a play we are all down. The same is true in the body of Christ. We all make one team. When one is hurting we all hurt, when one is rejoicing we all rejoice.
1 Corinthians 12:24-26 ESV (24) which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, (25) that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. (26) If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.
