Today begins Week 4 of Pastor Bob’s summer preaching series called “Exchange: Lifestyle,” exploring Romans 12-16.
The sermon today will be called: “Loving Your Neighbor?” and it will cover Romans 12:14-21.
Below is my breakdown of the passages into daily readings. I have committed to journaling my reflections about each of these passages here on my blog. Perhaps some of you would like to follow along–the whole summer reading schedule could be printed as a bookmark.

12:14 Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 12:16 Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. Do not be conceited. 12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil; consider what is good before all people. 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all people. 12:19 Do not avenge yourselves, dear friends, but give place to God’s wrath, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 12:20 Rather, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing this you will be heaping burning coals on his head. 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
