Supporting Scripture

Romans 12:9–18

[9] Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. [10] Love one another
with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. [11] Do not be slothful in
zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. [12] Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be
constant in prayer. [13] Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

[14] Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. [15] Rejoice with those
who rejoice, weep with those who weep. [16] Live in harmony with one another. Do not be
haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. [17] Repay no one
evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. [18] If possible, so
far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
