Bible: Rom 12:9-21

Conduct in Love

12:9 Love must be 1  without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good. 12:10 Be devoted to one another with mutual love, showing eagerness in honoring one another. 12:11 Do not lag in zeal, be enthusiastic in spirit, serve the Lord. 12:12 Rejoice in hope, endure in suffering, persist in prayer. 12:13 Contribute to the needs of the saints, pursue hospitality. 12:14 Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 12:16 Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. 2  Do not be conceited. 3  12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil; consider what is good before all people. 4  12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all people. 5  12:19 Do not avenge yourselves, dear friends, but give place to God’s wrath, 6  for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” 7  says the Lord. 12:20 Rather, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing this you will be heaping burning coals on his head. 8  12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
