3 For through a the grace given to me I say to everyone among you b not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to c each a measure of faith. 4 For a just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, a who are many, are b one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Since we have gifts that a differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if b prophecy, 1 according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if 1 a service, in his serving; or he who b teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who a exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with 1 b liberality; c he who 2 leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with d cheerfulness.
notes
Main point summary
No Christian should be arrogant with his spiritual gifts, feeling superior over other believers but instead humbly use his gifts in serving the body of believers, knowing that every believer, like himself, is but a member in Christ’s body who was given his gifts by God according to what He deems fit and for a specific purpose, in the same manner that a body part does its unique function consistently for the benefit and proper functioning of a person’s body.

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
For
by the grace given to me
I say
to everyone who is among you
not to think more highly of yourself than what one ought to think,

a measure of faith
to each one.

Compare with 12:5d
we have many members,
