Chapel Devotionals

Romans 12:9-21

Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 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; do not claim to be wiser than you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” No, “if your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them something to drink; for by doing this you will heap burning coals on their heads.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


Vuestra caridad sea sin fingimiento; detestando el mal, adhiriéndoos al bien; amándoos cordialmente los unos a los otros; estimando en más cada uno a los otros; con un celo sin negligencia; con espíritu fervoroso; sirviendo al Señor; con la alegría de la esperanza; constantes en la tribulación; perseverantes en la oración; compartiendo las necesitades de los santos; practicando la hospitalidad. Bendecid a los que os persiguen, no maldigáis. Alegraos con los que se alegran; llorad con los que lloran. Tened un mismo sentir los unos para con los otros; sin complaceros en la altivez; atraídos más bien por lo humilde; no os complazcáis en vuestra propia sabiduria. Sin devolver a nadie mal por mal; procurando el bien ante todos los hobres: en lo posible, y en cuanto de vosotros dependa, en paz con todos los hombres; no tomando la justicia por cuenta vuestra, queridos míos, dejad lugar a la Cólera, pues dice la Escritura: Mía es la venganza: yo daré el pago merecido, dice el Señor. Antes al contrario: si tu enemigo tiene hambre, dale de comer; y si tiene sed, dale de beber; haciéndolo así, amontonarás ascuas sobre su cabeza. No te dejes vencer por el mal; antes bien, vence al mal con el bien.


사랑엔 거짓이 없나니 악을 미워하고 선에 속하라 형제를 사랑하여 서로 우애하고 존경하기를 서로 먼저 하며 부지런하여 게으르지 말고 열심을 품고 주를 섬기라 소망 중에 즐거워하며 환난 중에 참으며 기도에 항상 힘쓰며 성도들의 쓸 것을 공급하며 손 대접하기를 힘쓰라 너희를 핍박하는 자를 축복하라 축복하고 저주하지 말라 즐거워하는 자들로 함께 즐거워하고 우는 자들로 함께 울라 서로 마음을 같이 하며 높은 데 마음을 두지 말고 도리어 낮은 데 처하며 스스로 지혜 있는 체 말라 아무에게도 악으로 악을 갚지말고 모든 사람 앞에서 선한 일을 도모하라 할 수 있거든 너희로서는 모든 사람으로 더불어 평화하라 내 사랑하는 자들아 너희가 친히 원수를 갚지말고 진노하심에 맡기라 기록되었으되 원수 갚는 것이 내게 있으니 내가 갚으리라고 주께서 말씀하시니라 네 원수가 주리거든 먹이고 목마르거든 마시우라 그리함으로 네가 숯불을 그 머리에 쌓아 놓으리라 악에게 지지 말고 선으로 악을 이기라


Almighty God,

     you set before us the example of how to live and move in the world through your Son, Jesus.

Great was his ministry in the world; 

     we rejoice to follow his teaching

     and hear your voice guiding our lives.

Call to us again, Lord.

Speak our names and direct our paths.

Summon us to do your will,

     to go where you would lead us,

     to abide in love,

     and to live following your example.

Teach us to serve your creation with humility and respect.

Send us, Lord!
