Romans 12:14-21 - Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 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. 20 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." 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Every time we turn around it seems there’s a new battle against Christians and Christianity. In our schools, in the workplace, in our neighborhoods and even on our own front yards, we’re told that our faith cannot be displayed in any form. We may sometimes feel discouraged, outnumbered, and threatened. However, the Apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, gave us some guidelines for how we can (and should) display our faith every day–and in ways “the opposition” cannot attack!
