Romans 12

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good, and acceptable, and perfect. For through the grace given to me, I say to every man among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according to the measure of faith God has given him. For as we have many members in one body, and all the members do not have the same function: So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually are members one of another. Having gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, according to the proportion of our faith; If service, in our serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; Or he who exhorts, in exhortation: he who gives, with generosity; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be genuine. Abhor that which is evil; cling to that which is good. 10 Be devoted to one another with brotherly love; honour one another more than yourselves; 11 Not lacking in zeal; aglow with the spirit; serving the Lord; 12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; faithful in prayer; 13 Contributing to the saints who are in need; practicing hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you: bless, and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own conceits. 17 Do not repay any man evil for evil, but take thought of those things that are right in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as it lies with you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place for the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord. 20 Therefore, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink: for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire upon his head. 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
