Romans 12:9-21 - Living In Love

9 Let your love be a real thing, with a loathing for evil and a bent for what is good. 10 Put affection into your love for the brotherhood; be forward to honour one another; 11 never let your zeal flag; maintain the spiritual glow; serve the Lord; 12 let your hope be a joy to you; be stedfast in trouble, attend to prayer, 13 contribute to needy saints, make a practice of hospitality. 14 Bless those who make a practice of persecuting you; bless them instead of cursing them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Keep in harmony with one another; instead of being ambitious, associate with humble folk; never be self-conceited. 17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone; aim to be above reproach in the eyes of all; 18 be at peace with all men, if possible, so far as that depends on you. 19 Never revenge yourselves, beloved, but let the Wrath of God have its way; for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will exact a requital ??the Lord has said it. No, 20 if your enemy is hungry, feed him, if he is thirsty, give him drink; for in this way you will make him feel a burning sense of shame.

21 Do not let evil get the better of you; get the better of evil by doing good.
