Romans 12:4-5, 15-21 (Epistle)

4
For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
5
so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
15
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
16
Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
17
Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
18
If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
19
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
20
Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
21
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
