Bless your persecutors; never curse them, bless them. Rejoice with others when they rejoice and be sad with those in sorrow. Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom. Never try to get revenge: leave that, my dear friends, to the Retribution. As scripture says: Vengeance is mine—I will pay them back, the Lord promises. And more: If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat, if thirsty, something to drink. By this you will be heaping red-hot coals on his head. Do not be mastered by evil, but master evil with good. Romans 12:14–21


  1. We're working our way through Thessalonians in church and this past Sunday we talked about how the Thessalonians needed each other to support them in their faith. (rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep) We talked about the need for 'church friends,' people who can support you in your faith. Faith is meant to be done in a community, so that when all you see is darkness, there is someone there to light your path. <3
