Scripture Sunday: Romans 12:9-21

I am going to try, every week, to share some scripture that has meaning towards the week I had or the week I want to have. 

If you are not Christian or not religious I hope that you will not be offended. This is for me and something that means something to me. I am not ashamed of my Christianity, nor will I hide it in hopes of keeping friends or followers. 

That being said, this weeks scripture comes from Romans, chapter 12:9-21.

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 
Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.
On the contrary: 

"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

I hope that everyone has an amazing week ahead of them!
