Romans 12:15-18 

 

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

 

 

LESSON

 

Believers should share the joys and sorrows of their neighbors, especially fellow believers. His  first miracle was performed in rejoicing with them that rejoice and His greatest miracle while weeping with those that wept. Feelings of superiority are neither realistic nor appropriate for

those who owe all to God’s grace: “do not be haughty , associate with the lowly.

 

Paul strongly advocated being a “peace”-maker, but he did not promote peace at any price. In some situations, peace might give way to conflict if, for example, the truth is at stake. In any case, the believer should not be the instigator of trouble under normal circumstances.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 31:9
