Letter to the Romans    12: 5-16

12:5 so also we, being many, are one body in Christ, and each one is a part, the one of the other.

12:6 And we each have different gifts, according to the grace that has been given to us: whether prophecy, in agreement with the reasonableness of faith;

12:7 or ministry, in ministering; or he who teaches, in doctrine;

12:8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, in simplicity; he who governs, in solicitude; he who shows mercy, in cheerfulness.

12:9 Let love be without falseness: hating evil, clinging to what is good,

12:10 loving one another with fraternal charity, surpassing one another in honor:

12:11 in solicitude, not lazy; in spirit, fervent; serving the Lord;

12:12 in hope, rejoicing; in tribulation, enduring; in prayer, ever-willing;

12:13 in the difficulties of the saints, sharing; in hospitality, attentive.

12:14 Bless those who are persecuting you: bless, and do not curse.

12:15 Rejoice with those who are rejoicing. Weep with those who are weeping.

12:16 Be of the same mind toward one another: not savoring what is exalted, but consenting in humility. Do not choose to seem wise to yourself.
