Maturity in Music Ministry

I wonder if Paul might say something like this to those of us involved in music ministry. (Based on I Corinthians 3)

I want to address us as mature and spirit-minded believers. There should not be any jealousy among us. We do not want to be worldly, but spiritual. We act worldly when we are concerned with who sings the solo, or who is called on to help lead the most. Who is the soloist, who is the backup singer, and who is the leader? Only servants, and the Lord has assigned to each his or her own task. He gave some to be sopranos, some altos, some tenors, and others basses. Some have good solo voices and some do not. Neither the soloist nor the backup singer is anything, but only God, whose Spirit delivers the message to open hearts. The one who sings and the one who accompanies have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are all God’s fellow workers, and you are God’s voice, His vessel carrying Good News.
