Romans 12:14 NIV

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

We repay evil with blessing.

Romans 12:15 NIV

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Romans 12:16 NIV

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

We have all sinned and are equally dependent on grace.

Romans 12:17-19 NIV

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do 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,” says the Lord.

Romans 12:20-21 NIV

On 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.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Overlook the offense.
Pray for them.
Forgive them.
Bless them.
