Bible Verses from Romans 12:9-21

Interpretation / Application

9Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Even if it seems like everybody is doing something which you know to be wrong and it is “acceptable,” it is still wrong. Stand up for what you know is right.
10Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Be nice to each other. Avoid arguing, and instead, show respect for other people’s opinions.
11Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Read your Bible and pray everyday! Go to church to worship God every Sunday.
12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Do not worry when God does not seem to have a quick answer to a prayer. Wait patiently.
13Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Be generous with your time, money and talents because all these are gifts from the Lord.
14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Do not say bad things about other people, even if they hurt you. Pray for them instead.
15Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Do not be envious when other people get good things; learn to be happy for others. And don’t laugh at other people’s mistakes.
16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.c Do not be conceited. “Huwag magyabang!” Be humble and try to be friends with all kinds of people. Do not think you are better than anyone else.
17Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. Always think of how you can be a blessing to others. Be a good example.
18If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do what it takes to keep peace, even if it means sacrificing what you want for the sake of others.
19Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”d says the Lord. Do not take revenge on anyone that has hurt you. Forgive others even if they do not ask forgiveness; ask God for help to forgive as He forgave us.
20On 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.”e Show kindness to those who are unkind. Sometimes, they are unkind because they have been hurt by others before. Be a channel of the blessing of  healing, comfort  and love.
21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Defeat the enemy by being a soldier of Christ.
