Romans 12:1-21 (KJV)
[I] beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies
of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

[2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye
may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.

[3] For I say, through the grace given unto me,
to every man that is among you, not to think of himself
more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly,
according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

[4] For as we have many members in one body, and all
members have not the same office:

[5] So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and every one members one of another.

[6] Having then gifts differing according to the
grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us
prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

[7] Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering:
or he that teacheth, on teaching;

[8] Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that
giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that
ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy,
with cheerfulness.

[9] Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor
that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

[10] Be kindly affectioned one to another with
brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

[11] Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit;
serving the Lord;

[12] Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer;

[13] Distributing to the necessity of saints;
given to hospitality.

[14] Bless them which persecute you: bless,
and curse not.

[15] Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and
weep with them that weep.

[16] Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind
not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.
Be not wise in your own conceits.

[17] Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide
things honest in the sight of all men.

[18] If it be possible, as much as lieth in you,
live peaceably with all men.

[19] Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but
rather give place unto wrath: for it is written,
Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

[20] Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him;
if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing
thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

[21] Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

May He bless you richly, as you continue to
