This is my favorite verse in the Bible, Romans 12:9-17...
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.
Don't you just love that?! That is the kind of Christian that I strive to be.
I've loved this verse for many years, but what makes it even more special to us now is that we asked the Mr.'s Dad to read it at our wedding.
Here he is reading it during our ceremony...
And here we are watching him...
